Broker presents a unique opportunity to own and operate a regional wholesale / distribution business in south Louisiana. This very profitable business’ main product line is nationally recognized and distributed. In addition to this well-known and established brand, this wholesaler also has some locally developed offerings giving the new owner unlimited opportunity for growth. The current owner states this territory could certainly generate revenues of $1MM or more as they have not actively marketed to the accounts in this territory. Included in the sale of this business are two route trucks that are currently utilized in the territory but the current owner states that the area could definitely use an additional two trucks once the business reaches its potential and marketing is in place. If the new owner is also willing to service one of these routes themselves, their annual cash flow would be close to $120,000! The business currently has about 280 accounts which include corporate accounts (Dollar Tree, Fred’s, Big Lot’s and Federal Prisons), Chain accounts (Shop Rite / Tobacco Plus Stores, Super Stop Stores, Etc.) but the majority of its accounts are independent accounts which is where the highest margins are earned.
Facility arrangements are already in place and provide all of the necessary services for receiving, storing, loading of the product. Purchasing is directly from the manufacturers in large quantities to obtain the best pricing. The current owner of this territory is selling so he can focus his efforts on developing another territory he owns and feels this territory could be better managed and grown by a local owner. He will provide adequate training to the new owner and would consider some seller financing for the right buyer with an adequate down payment.
