Details - Information last confirmed on September 16, 2020
This well-established and highly profitable business has been effectively operated as a sideline business for over 20 years. It is primarily a business which sells dealerships to individuals seeking to own and operate their own small business from home. These individuals purchase exclusive territorial rights to represent and distribute a specialty line of products manufactured by one of the world’s most well-known national brands. This 150 year old iconic brand is a powerful door opener and drives the business’s continued success.
Over 20+ years, the owners have built an effective methodology for attracting interested buyers who are looking for a small business to run from home. Many like what they see and hear, and sign up to become a dealer. A weekend “QuickStart” training program teaches them how to be successful and helps get them get up and running quickly. Ongoing support is also provided. The business is easy to learn and simple to operate and attracts all kinds of people from all backgrounds. New dealers can be of any age, gender, or ethnicity- and come from all over the nation.
BEST REASONS FOR ACQUIRING THIS COMPANY
• Tremendous brand recognition. Iconic brand is recognized the world over and has opened many doors.
• Highly Profitable. Outstanding success over twenty years.
• Low overhead. No material inventory, receivables, FF&E, or Capital Expenditures. Few staff members required.
• Operate from home. Business can be operated from most any location. Current owners have home offices in same state, and one virtual office (for business phone/receptionist/meeting room) in major city there.
• Very flexible work hours. Can be operated as a secondary business.
• Easy Transition. Current owners are willing to stay on for the first year to help facilitate a smooth transition.
The owners work out of their homes. Training sessions for new dealers are usually held on a weekend in a leased business suite or meeting room, an arrangement that works well and is economical.
A unique approach to selling these dealerships was developed over many years and would require insider knowledge and training to implement. The owners are unaware of any other businesses exactly like this, or any threats to its continued success. Although there will always be other small business opportunities out there, this company has found a distinctive niche and has done well over the years because it appeals to a broad audience, offering what many potential small business owners are looking for:
2. Work at home/Flexible hours
3. Well-known national brand name products
4. Training and quick start-up
5. Great earnings potential
6. On-going support
GROWTH & EXPANSION
Proprietary model developed by current owners can be adapted to encompass additional brands and product lines. New owners could pursue and develop these opportunities. Also, other avenues for reaching more potential dealers (i.e. social media) might be utilized. Current advertising, while successful, is limited to a single business opportunity internet site. Present owners have intentionally not pursued some options in order to keep business small and manageable as a sideline.
