Property Information

Facilities:

This is a home-based business with mobile outreach throughout the tri-county area. It is easy to run & capitalize on the business relationships that the current owner has cultivated over the years. It is very easy to relocate. An artist, art teacher or a stay-home mom that has artistic inclinations would find this business purposeful and very attractive both socially and economically.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The company is working to reach as many children as possible to have fun with art, to be creative and to keep their creations as a past reminder of a day in their childhood! Some children have never had the opportunity to paint before we visited their school. Some of the children can't get past the joy of washing their paintbrush and watching the water change color. This in itself represents a huge growth opportunity for a new owner with a business drive and love for arts and kids. Until now the business has been run based word of mouth with no advertising. Direct mail, online advertising and social media can open venues that this business never had before. The sky is the limit in the arena of children's education & entertainment.

Competition:

None of the competition has the longevity, the experience and the client relationships like this company. The industry trends are very encouraging as children's educational entertainment is something that is promoted both by the schools and the families.

Reason for selling:

This company has been bringing people together of all ages for over 17 years by providing arts and crafts activities to homes, schools, corporate events, picnics, birthday parties, fundraisers, holiday parties, camps, resorts and more. They are a mobile "Ready-to-Paint" Plastercraft Company. They come to your event organized with no-bake plastercraft plaques and figurines, paint, brushes and plastic for your tables. The owner, who started the company & created a great book of business & portfolio of customers is retiring. This is a great business for an artist or an art teacher looking for additional income and who wants to make a name in the educational field in Broward County and beyond.

Support & Training:

Will train for 3 weeks @ no cost. The current owner started the company as a single mom, working from home and being able to have a flexible, fun job part time. She loved being a mobile business bringing crafts to kids in schools in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties. They are an approved vendor for all three school districts, Parks and Recreation, YMCAs, ASP, ARC, PTAs, SAAC, Girl Scouts, hotels, assisted living communities, churches, synagogues, special needs and many more. Their birthday parties are always a favorite for both the parents and the kids! They still make the molds and the figurines to be painted, and they have added a new craft every two years. They have had the privilege to be hugged and thanked endlessly on this job by both kids and adults.
