Looking for a buyer.
This transportation and distribution business operates in an industry that is continually high in demand as they handle food products that require a refrigerated and/or climate-controlled environment. This consistency has led to the business seeing continual year over year growth in their gross sales, including in 2020 when many companies struggled to continue their operation. This company boasts an impressive 85% repeat customer base and over 30 years of experience in their industry. While they primarily handle food transportation, they also offer warehousing services which makes up 10% of their annual revenue. There is an abundance of space allotted for physical expansion in their 20,000 square foot facility – 18,800 sq. ft. of this space is for warehousing, with 1,200 sq. ft. being utilized as an office space. Having been extremely well established, this business has accumulated an excellent reputation and industry leading staff. Their team is made up of 28 employees: 3 team leads, 2 dispatchers, 13 long haul drivers, 4 local drivers, and 6 warehouse workers. This full team allows them to self-perform all of their deliveries and eliminates any need for outside contractors. The purchase of this business includes over $1.3M in assets, including nearly $700K in vehicles and equipment, along with $600K in working capital. The services provided are 100% B2B, serving food production companies all over the US. Some of these clients have been around since shortly after the company’s inception in 1989! Even with the heavy percentage of repeating clients, their annual revenue is widely distributed across several different clients, resulting in minimal customer concentration. They also consistently add new clients to the mix as well, allowing for year over year growth in revenue over the last several years. While both owners do have some involvement in the business, both are committed to seeing the business continue successfully and would be willing to stay on for 1-3 years post-close. During this time, they will train and transition the business to new ownership, while also finding and training any replacement needed. To further demonstrate their vested dedication in the ongoing success of this business, they are willing to offer a seller carry rate of 15%, which is above the industry standard of 10%. Priced at $3,415,000, this business is ready for new ownership to take over and continue the pattern of growth to build on their current long-standing legacy.
