Popular gluten-free options make this retailer a hit with the local community looking for healthy food options. Located on a busy highway between metropolitan areas, this business enjoys heavy traffic and easy access. The sale price of this business is set at the fair market value of the assets in place with all inventory included in the sale. Having a leased facility is in a strip mall on a busy road, located in a popular shopping district helps attract customers from a wide area. Continued development in the immediate vicinity will bring more customers to the area in the future. This very nice retail space is split between a larger shopping area and a smaller food preparation area with plenty of storage space.
The retail food and beverage industry is extremely competitive, but the selection and quality of foods this retailer sells are unique in its service area. Customers travel from over an hour away to shop here because of the unique selection of products this business offers. Quality foods which are locally sourced are a huge draw for this very loyal customer base. The business has a very nice website which displays information a customer would need to make purchases. In addition to its website, the business has an active Facebook account with many hundreds of followers. There are also conventional media marketing techniques being used. This operation has one 50 square foot cooler and one 96 square foot freezer. Included are prep tables to prepare items as needed along with an ice cream serving well and pizza prep table. Plenty of rack storage and 4 sinks are utilized in the operations. There are 54 feet of retail freezers displayed in the retail sales area and 2 dining tables inside as well as 2 outside for people to sit. New local attractions are being built in the near vicinity. As the population and other local draws grow, this business will have more foot traffic from people being close by. The new owner may change the marketing that is currently in place, add specials or food preparation classes to bring in new customers. Product pricing adjustments are another way to maximize margins.
