Hartford County, CT

This is a unique opportunity because it can return a profit as a part-time seasonal business or be expanded into a full-time operation. It is a great opportunity for a single owner or a husband and wife business. Maintain your current employment and build the business at your own pace or jump in full time and take advantage of the company’s excellent reputation and customer base. The business is a wholesale distributor of a wide variety of products and items used for the enjoyment of the outdoors. The company has an excellent reputation for quality products and service to businesses in the outdoor recreation market. The business which can be located anywhere in the country has a loyal customer base of over 800 that extends across the US. The current owner has sold exclusively to outdoor retailers but as this is a large market not all prospects have been contacted. A new owner could retain the current level of sales and benefit to owner on a part-time basis or expand the business as a full-time owner/operator. At one time, sales exceeded $500,000/year and benefit to owner was in the range of $80,000/year. At that time the owner made annual visits to many of his customers and was very active in trade organizations. In recent years, for family reasons, the owner has sharply curtailed customer visits. At this time, his sales efforts are limited to phone calls to customers, catalogs and website purchases. His rapport and reputation with customers remain good but personal contact results in larger orders. With a coordinated sales effort of personal visits, attendance at trade shows and aggressive use of the internet, the owner believes annual sales will exceed $500,000. As mentioned above, the owner has been very active in trade organizations. With the excellent reputation of the business, an energetic entrepreneur would be able to grow sales and profits in a relatively short period. The owner would provide proper training for a buyer, assist in a smooth transition and introduce the buyer to customers and members of trade organizations. His time is flexible up to one year.
