Exceptional home-based wine touring business with two large buses is available for acquisition. This business was originally established in 2010 by the current owner of the business. While competition will always be in place for touring businesses in large cities, this business is by far the largest and most organized tour company within the metroplex that has established strong relationships with numerous corporate event planners. Most of the customer base consists of a mix of local individuals, local companies, groups of tourists, event planners, and referrals from local hotel staff that steadily increase the traffic toward this business. Gross sales average $480,000.00/year that has consistently grew over the last several years of operation due to active marketing on social media outlets and referrals from local hotel staff. This business was also advertised on widely known local tourism publication as well as using PR to gain media coverage to generate an increase in customer traffic. Additionally, this business was rated one-of-the-top 10 places to enjoy when coming to the DFW area and that has attracted many individuals from all over the nation. The business model can easily be scaled to many other locations within all of Texas and is also relocatable as this business is home-based. Marketing can be done in several types of methods such as contacting more hotels outside the city, direct mailing, cold call corporations in Texas, expand to other high-income cities, and attracting customers that come to visit Texas from different states. Expanding to new sub-industries of the touring industry may synergize well with the current business model to generate more cash flow. There are currently two 25-passenger buses that the business uses for touring all the wineries within Northwest Dallas and additional tour buses can be purchased to expand to other areas in the DFW metroplex. Their website also supports online booking for tours and seating that is easily accessible as well as secure. This business has operated for several years with each year increasing in sales including the active marketing from the owner of the business. A proactive buyer that is willing to operate this business full-time while actively expanding the business is what this business needs to generate more revenue.
There are two 25-passenger buses that are located in a city Northwest of Dallas that can easily be expanded to other cities. Since this business is not located in an office or retail space, this business doesn't have to worry about rent expense while being flexible with relocation and expansion.
Proactive marketing has been done through social media outlets and local tourist publications, but with additional marketing this business will generate more revenue as it is easily scalable.
Few competitors are within the immediate market area and throughout the metroplex, but this business is currently the most organized tour company in the metroplex due to strong social media presence and great reputation with many corporate event planners.
The owner of the business will provide the necessary training to smoothly transition into the business operation.
