  • Event Production with Retail Large Inventory

    For 14 years, Houston has been treated to the best event planning and design available. With a large retail inventory in place, this company can accommodate over 150 events each year. More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    Roughly 30 subcontractors are in place to help with setting up décor and equipment, and the sellers consistently rely on a good group of 6 to 10 regular crew members. Services are split 10% planning, 40% production and 50% rentals, with around 30% of clients needing help with décor, sound, lighting and more. While the company can accommodate some staging, sound and lighting for smaller events, these services are generally outsourced to one of 10 strategic partners.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

Uniformed employees staff the booths as needed for the events, taking care of pre-event setup, helping customers during events, and teardown afterward.  The current owner books events and manages the contracted labor.  This business could easily continue as a passive operation, but profits would increase by an owner working the events.

  • Commodities Brokerage with $1M in Profit

Outside of these, futures trading comes from other traditional markets like currency, oil, precious metals and more. In business for over 25 years, the seller is looking to retire and will be leaving behind an additional book of 1,200 inactive clients for a new owner to take on and grow the company.

This can be achieved during the Due Diligence time period after an offer to purchase the business has been made, and can be taken in testing centers across Nebraska. A buyer not looking to broker would need to hire additional brokers to assist the 2 employed brokers currently working.

    This is an excellent chance for a sales professional to break into a lucrative field with obtainable licensing, or for a larger commodities firm to acquire a second location. Sales are steady year-over-year, and an ambitious broker could drive sells well over the $2M mark.

  • Absentee Large Animal Vet with 2 Locations

    Located in and serving Northeastern Nebraska, this two-location large animal vet practice is up for sale. Owned and operated by 3 practicing DVM’s, the sellers are looking to slowly transition out of the operation over the next 3 years, and are looking for an absentee owner to take interest in the business now. All three owners split time between the two locations, and are helped by two non-owner DVM’s. While the practice has operations in two different towns, the distance between both is just a 15-minute drive.

    Specializing in the care of cattle, roughly 80% of services are focused on cow/calf and feedlot operations, including processing facilities. A large part of services involves dispensation of medication and antibiotics, and comprises ¼ to 1/3 of income. The vets also assist with swine operations, equine facilities and small animal concerns.

    Assisting the vets are 6 feed yard technicians who help with the examination and treatment of animals. At each location is an office manager to handle daily operations and run the facilities, including A/R, A/P and payroll.  Facilities also include corrals to hold animals dropped off for longer-term care.

    A growth opportunity exists in increasing small animal care, which currently only comprises about 8% of income. Even without that increase, a 10% down payment of $137,200 would yield a first year’s profit of $120,771 after debt payments.

  • Auger Manufacturer Sold in 235 Dealerships

    For nearly 50 years, this portable auger manufacturer has built a strong reputation and fostered brand loyalty. Located in the Midwest, over 230 dealerships across 9 states carry and sell this company’s products, which are built from start to finish on the business’ premises. Augers of all sizes (from 8” to 92’) and types (top drive, portable, direct drive) are delivered to dealerships under net 30 payment terms. So far, 2017 has seen over 50 augers built and delivered, with 240 built and 260 sold in 2016.

    Inventory build-up is an important part of this business, and the ag equipment industry in general, as demonstrated by 2016’s numbers. All inventory built in 2016 was sold, in addition to 20 carried over from 2015. The company had not planned ahead with inventory and were not able to meet demand in 2016, which was already a slower year due to a decrease in crop prices. Augers are an impulse buy, so having inventory on hand for dealerships or the occasional customer ordering direct, is a must.

    On staff are 15 employees, 11 of whom are skilled or unskilled plant laborers. Laborers, including a Production Supervisor, handle all assembly and painting. The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

    The business has over $2M in assets, with much of it comprised of inventory parts and completed machinery. Inventory and equipment are housed across the campus’ 11 buildings, which total 69,000 sq. ft. Growth exists in manufacturing longer augers and building up inventory with capital investments.

Specializing in cats and dogs, nearby horses and some small farm animals also come to this owner/operator clinic.  Assisting the doctor are two vet techs and an office assistant, as well as a few resident felines.

    Included in the purchase of the clinic is roughly $113,000 in assets. A new owner would receive $84,000 in general DVM equipment, the majority of it purchased within the last 3 years. Nearly $15,000 in wholesale inventory will transition to a buyer, as well as around $14,000 in A/R, with 70% of it collectible.

    Growth exists in adding grooming services for the current clients, as well as some boarding. The current owner previously worked with large farm animals, but due to health issues has discontinued that practice in recent years. This would be a great area for growth, as the practice is situated in farm country.

    With a proposed purchase price of $390,000, a 10% down payment of $39,000 would return a first year’s profit of $75,868 after debts. This would position a buyer to earn a 194% return on investment.

    Housed in a 2,948 sq. ft. building, patients are treated in 2 exam rooms, surgery and hospital rooms, and a treatment room.  Boarded dogs are given ample exercise in a fenced outdoor run, and are housed in 1 of 2 boarding rooms.  A 1099 contracted groomer provides bathing, trimming and grooming services as needed.

    The seller is willing to stay on and practice for another five years if the business is purchased by an absentee owner.  Currently, the veterinarian is looking to gradually move toward retirement, so a non-DVM buyer would have ample time to hire additional help in anticipation of that exit.

    With a purchase price of $1,576,700, a buyer would place 10% down, with a bank loan partially collateralized by the $230,000 in assets.  This is a perfect investment opportunity for an absentee owner, or for a DVM looking to own a business.

    At a purchase price of $319,000 and 10% down ($31,900), the bank loan would be 68% collateralized by the $173,805 in assets.  A first year’s profit of $52,215 would return 163% of the 10% down after all debts.

    The company is located in a 4,000-sq. ft. space leased at $1,000/month.  3 full-time employees, all skilled mechanics, earn $20-$23/hour repairing semis and trailers for 500 active clients.  Labor charges are $80/hour plus parts, with the average ticket ranging between $500 to $600.  While the seller is somewhat involved in daily maintenance, the employees are able to handle the workload, and a new owner need not be as involved in mechanic work.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

  • Transportation Business in NE Nebraska

    3 locations and virtually no competition in northeast Nebraska make this transportation and taxi company an ideal investment. Purchased by the current owner in 1997, the business had a cash flow of $68,195 in 2016. Contracts are in place for regular service, and only 20% of sales come from call-in cab rides. On staff is a manager to oversee the 14 drivers, who are paid a minimum wage with commissions.

    Virtually no competition exists in the area, as city transportation is inflexible, and there are no other taxi companies in town. Even so, growth exists by offering services to other nearby towns within a 2-hour radius. A buyer could also advertise services to rural areas. Furthermore, a buyer purchasing as owner-operator would see an immediate increase of nearly $40,000 in cash flow with the removal of the manager

    Priced at $187,500, a buyer paying 10% down would profit $40,792 in the first year after debts.

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    If you’re looking to expand your construction & remodeling services, or would like an absentee investment, this foam jacking and concrete lifting business is a nice addition for your company or portfolio.  Started in May 2013, this business has continued to steadily grow, and offers all your concrete lifting needs, including caulking and sealing.

    With a labor staff of 2 working 5 days per week, roughly 5 to 6 jobs are completed each day, with the average ticket running from $400 to $500.  An office manager and a salesman schedule clients and take bids.  While the business is seasonal, work can be completed in winter, weather permitting.  The labor staff handles shop maintenance when outside work cannot be done during the off season.

    The seller currently uses a 180-sq. ft. office that he is willing to lease during a transition period for $1,400/month triple net.  An owner/operator does not need to utilize an office, especially if he/she decides to handle contracts and sales.  Clients rarely stop by the current office, so even an absentee owner could have the salesman and office manager work from home.

    With a proposed purchase price set at $105,000, a 10% down payment of $10,500 would provide a 105% return on investment in the first year.  This could easily increase if a buyer chooses to handle sales and contracts also.

Located in Omaha with jobs across Nebraska and into surrounding states, projects are 95% commercial in nature and 80% new construction.

    Each year, roughly 30 jobs are completed, with most lasting around 3 months in duration.

Assisting with projects are 7 staff, consisting of 2 Estimators, 2 Superintendents, and 2 office personnel. The seller acts as Project Manager, negotiating deals, planning out projects and handling the front end of business. A buyer could delegate some of these duties to the Superintendents and Estimators, as the seller has not done so by choice.

    Growth areas could be an increase in marketing as the current owner has not devote time to that area. Even without marketing, the company has seen tremendous growth, but some attention here could ensure steady numbers year over year. A buyer would also be wise to focus on business development to see the company into the next 10 years and beyond.

    Focusing on residential customers, 90% of income is generated from repairs and remodels.

These two locations are so new that the paint is still drying on the walls, and one of them is in a major shopping area that is still undergoing construction.  The first location was opened in 2014 and the second opened in 2015. The stage is set for growth with these two locations. Business is already booming, with 15 monthly recurring corporate accounts, 15 monthly recurring pharmaceutical accounts, and over 400 catering contracts in past year including schools, health care, and car dealerships. All recent build out was completed for $300,000 total for both locations. 

    Both locations are fully equipped with individual smokers and catering vans. The first location has five part-time and five full-time staff with the owner assuming the role as GM. The second location has a GM, 4 full-time and 6 part-time staff. Growth opportunities are plentiful in that a new owner could continue to do extra marketing and even purchase a third franchise location with the existing credits of the franchise.

  • Leather & Vinyl Repair with 125K in Profit

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    The franchise values existing stores at $250,000, but these stores are being valued at $240,000 to suit the local market. At a purchase price of $960,000, a bank loan would be partially collateralized by the $135,876 in assets.

Licensed in 5 states and located in Eastern Nebraska, the company is a preferred provider for all 3 major Nebraska insurance providers. The warehouse is managed by 2 employees who also handle sales, billing and accreditation.

    Between $50,000 - $60,000 worth of inventory is kept in the warehouse, but most orders are direct ship. Much of the inventory is wheelchairs, held over from before the owners moved to drop shipping in 2016. Please note that the warehouse is set up for minimal walk-in traffic.

    Each location has a Respiratory Therapist managing the store and 3 customer service reps. Other employees include a billing manager and a service/delivery tech who is on call alternating weeks to provide emergency delivery and service.  Current owners handle A/P, A/R, scheduling and oversight, but are not store managers as they are not licensed respiratory therapists.

     

    ACHC accredited and part of the BBB Honor Roll, current owners have set up a Connect Program that allows for easy outreach to patients needing resupply. While there are local competitors, many are evolving to no longer carry Medicare or provide shipment, leaving a gap for this business to step in.  There is virtually no competition with Lincoln or Omaha markets, as this company is designed for rural populations unable or unwilling to travel to large cities for medical supplies. 

     

    Due to a growing family, current owners are unable to devote the 30/40 hours per week for business management, so the business is priced to move!

    For 14 years, Houston has been treated to the best event planning and design available. With a large retail inventory in place, this company can accommodate over 150 events each year. More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    Roughly 30 subcontractors are in place to help with setting up décor and equipment, and the sellers consistently rely on a good group of 6 to 10 regular crew members. Services are split 10% planning, 40% production and 50% rentals, with around 30% of clients needing help with décor, sound, lighting and more. While the company can accommodate some staging, sound and lighting for smaller events, these services are generally outsourced to one of 10 strategic partners.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

  • Non-Emergency Medical Transport

    Located in Central Missouri, this non-emergency medical transport business has established relationships with Missouri Medicaid and senior living facilities. In business for 7 years, the company currently services 8 counties and is poised for expansion into surrounding communities. Customers engage this company for transportation to medical appointments, with many of them coming through the Missouri Medicaid system.

    Accounts are billed per leg, with the 2nd quarter of 2017 accumulating a total of 1,233 trip legs. This averages out to over 600 round trips per month. The company contracts to 10 drivers that all use their own vehicles. There is a company-owned vehicle that is leased to one of the drivers, and this car is part of the purchase.

    Expansion exists in adding additional everyday living services for errands, shopping trips, airport transportation and more. Currently not equipped to handle wheelchairs, a buyer could purchase some wheelchair-equipped vehicles or seek out drivers with these vehicles already. A buyer could also explore state grants for vehicle purchases, but would need to fulfill all grant requirements for submission. Hours could also be expanded, as well as developing more relationships with local nursing and senior living homes.

    This is an excellent opportunity to own a company in a much-needed service area, and growth is limited only to the buyer’s desire. Listed at $350,000, a buyer would need to pay just 10% down to own a solid company.

  • Foam Jacking Perfect for Add-On Services

    If you’re looking to expand your construction & remodeling services, or would like an absentee investment, this foam jacking and concrete lifting business is a nice addition for your company or portfolio.  Started in May 2013, this business has continued to steadily grow, and offers all your concrete lifting needs, including caulking and sealing.

    With a labor staff of 2 working 5 days per week, roughly 5 to 6 jobs are completed each day, with the average ticket running from $400 to $500.  An office manager and a salesman schedule clients and take bids.  While the business is seasonal, work can be completed in winter, weather permitting.  The labor staff handles shop maintenance when outside work cannot be done during the off season.

    With a proposed purchase price set at $105,000, a 10% down payment of $10,500 would provide a 105% return on investment in the first year.  This could easily increase if a buyer chooses to handle sales and contracts also.

    Growth areas could be an increase in marketing as the current owner has not devote time to that area.

A buyer would also be wise to focus on business development to see the company into the next 10 years and beyond.

  • Leather & Vinyl Repair with 125K in Profit

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    The company is located in a 4,000-sq. ft. space leased at $1,000/month.  3 full-time employees, all skilled mechanics, earn $20-$23/hour repairing semis and trailers for 500 active clients.  Labor charges are $80/hour plus parts, with the average ticket ranging between $500 to $600.  While the seller is somewhat involved in daily maintenance, the employees are able to handle the workload, and a new owner need not be as involved in mechanic work.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

    The current owner purchased in 2013 and has dramatically increased sales by over 50%.  However, the seller’s main business has also grown and requires much attention. A buyer skilled in sales and management should be able to grow the business to over $3M in sales, which is common for many franchise locations.

    Jobs are split between 3 main sectors: commercial cleaning (15%), managed properties (50%) and residential (35%).  Employees are scheduled between 9am and 5pm as needed, working 2 to 3 jobs per day.  Busy season is summer, when carpet cleaning and move out cleaning is most needed.  Winters have a steady influx of hallway maintenance and maintenance cleaning as requested.  This would include minor repairs and duties such as putting up blinds and more thorough cleaning.

    All 3 employees are paid a percentage of each job they work, earning 30% for carpet cleaning and 50% for apartment move outs and hallway maintenance.  Of the major clients, 1 has 4 downtown buildings under contract, 1 has an apartment complex and there are a couple more with several rental properties throughout the Omaha Metro.  The average job is priced from $500 - $900 depending on what services are performed.   

    This is a great opportunity to expand an existing commercial carpet cleaning business, or to start fresh and build on the current owner’s success.  With only $13,500, a buyer would walk away with $10,000 in equipment and a steady roster of clients.

    Inventory build-up is an important part of this business, and the ag equipment industry in general, as demonstrated by 2016’s numbers.

The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

  • Styrofoam Block Manufacturer for Carpet Cleaning

    Perfect for those already in carpet cleaning and free lease for two years! A simple manufacturing process creates a highly demanded, low tech product for the professional home cleaning industry.  If you’ve ever had your carpet cleaned, you’ve used these Styrofoam blocks. 

    The manufacturing process is simple and can be easily learned.  Growth potential is huge, and this business is only limited by the amount of time the owner can put into manufacturing and selling the product.  Demand has outpaced the present owner’s ability to keep up, as he owns another successful business that requires his attention. 

    With five product types, this manufacturer satisfies the various needs of their retail and wholesale distribution channels. The custom-built manufacturing equipment is in place and the current owner is willing to let the new owner continue the business in the current location free of rent for up to two years in order to ensure success of the operation.

    Capture growth by increasing production and marketing efforts to distributors.  Currently there is no marketing done, so the potential is large.  An industry insider could add this to their carpet cleaning business and continue retail to wholesalers.

  • Property Management Providing Cleaning Services

    This Omaha franchise location for building maintenance management had over $1M in gross sales during 2016 – a 20% increase from 2015 and 53% increase from 2014.  Specializing in subcontracting out to small cleaning outfits, this business currently works with 20 crews cleaning 85 – 90 buildings each week.  The franchise model works to grow businesses for subcontractors by managing sales and advertising, as the franchise is NOT a cleaning company but strictly management.  It’s a way for small teams to gain new business without having to devote time to growing the business.

    As the only franchise location in Nebraska, clients across the Omaha Metro are served on both sides of the river.  Services include interior and exterior cleaning.  There are 4 full-time employees working 9am to 5pm in the office, either in sales or management.  Currently there are 20 subcontractors, each in charge of their own crews.  Payment is issued monthly based on the number of buildings that have been cleaned, and contractors oversee their own insurance and most of their equipment needs.  

    The current owner purchased in 2013 and has dramatically increased sales by over 50%.  However, the seller’s main business has also grown and requires much attention. A buyer skilled in sales and management should be able to grow the business to over $3M in sales, which is common for many franchise locations.

  • Commodities Brokerage with $1M in Profit

    This futures trading company earns a 59% profit margin. Located in Eastern Nebraska with 700 active clients across 30 states, 80% of contracts are grain or livestock based. Outside of these, futures trading comes from other traditional markets like currency, oil, precious metals and more. In business for over 25 years, the seller is looking to retire and will be leaving behind an additional book of 1,200 inactive clients for a new owner to take on and grow the company.

    A buyer looking to broker would need to obtain a Series 3 license administered by FINRA. The test is a straightforward 2 1/2-hour, multiple choice exam to secure a license. This can be achieved during the Due Diligence time period after an offer to purchase the business has been made, and can be taken in testing centers across Nebraska. A buyer not looking to broker would need to hire additional brokers to assist the 2 employed brokers currently working.

    This is an excellent chance for a sales professional to break into a lucrative field with obtainable licensing, or for a larger commodities firm to acquire a second location. Sales are steady year-over-year, and an ambitious broker could drive sells well over the $2M mark.

However, the majority of clients require service in the Atlanta area. Engineers will travel where the client needs them, including oversees, which occurs roughly 5% of the time.

    Growth exists in bidding more contracts. The seller had a large infrastructure build contract in 2015 that bumped gross sales to over $7M. Seeking out more of those opportunities, as well as government contracts, will provide great income streams.

This is a great chance to take a well-known company and grow it to the next level with more staff and an ambitious owner.

    Growth exists in increasing Project Management services. The seller has seen an increase in consultations for clients’ project managing needs, and continuing to market this service should produce a nice revenue stream. Also, as corporate clients are becoming a larger part of sales, seeking out these customers is another path to consider.

  • Special Event Photo Booth Business - Run Passively

    Turn up the fancy for weddings, parties and corporate events with this elegant photo booth business netting a 51% profit margin!  Current owner runs passively, but increase profits by attending the photo booths yourself at each event.  An average 4 to 7-hour booking runs at just over $600 with expenses at $150 to $184, resulting in a net profit of over $415 per event!  Business is being turned away as the owner is unable to accommodate the demand, but 2015 and 2016 had 141 bookings each. 

    Customers can choose from 4 photo booth styles: wedding, party, VIP and Hollywood.  Booths range from a cozy, five-person capacity to a whopping 12-person affair.  Photo strips are presented on stylish VIP frames, and those waiting outside can see the fun within the booths broadcast over TV monitors.  Party guests are also treated to fun props to be used in the photo booths, and the Hollywood vibe is real with red carpets and stanchions for the VIP experience

    Established in 2010, this business is fully operational and ready for a new owner to step in and begin booking events. Uniformed employees staff the booths as needed for the events, taking care of pre-event setup, helping customers during events, and teardown afterward.  The current owner books events and manages the contracted labor.  This business could easily continue as a passive operation, but profits would increase by an owner working the events.

    In the first year, a buyer with a 15% down payment of $19,650 would profit $26,144 (133% return) after all debts are paid.

  • Event Production with Retail Large Inventory

    For 14 years, Houston has been treated to the best event planning and design available. With a large retail inventory in place, this company can accommodate over 150 events each year. More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    Roughly 30 subcontractors are in place to help with setting up décor and equipment, and the sellers consistently rely on a good group of 6 to 10 regular crew members. Services are split 10% planning, 40% production and 50% rentals, with around 30% of clients needing help with décor, sound, lighting and more. While the company can accommodate some staging, sound and lighting for smaller events, these services are generally outsourced to one of 10 strategic partners.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

  • GSA & Public Works Aluminum Boat Manufacturer

    For over 50 years, this custom aluminum boat manufacturer has been creating sought-after designs popular with government and state entities. The seller has just renewed a decades-long contract with the GSA, and continually receives orders from state entities, who have brought clients in from across the nation. Notable purchasers include the Army Corps of Engineers, Department of the Interior, the Bureau of Land Management, Georgia Power and Alabama Power.

    Operating out of 2 buildings located in Eastern Iowa, there are 12 full-time employees working on the boats from start to finish. Flat sheets of aluminum are crafted into work boats, pontoons, fire/rescue boats and more. Seating is purchased, then embroidered and installed before the final product is delivered. When weather conditions are favorable, the boats are water-tested on the Mississippi. For inclement months, some testing can be completed indoors.

    While the business has an established name and requested product, growth does exist in offering new lines for the private sector. A buyer should consider creating basic fishing boats and motor boats. The full-stocked showroom is set up for anything a boater would need, so adding new lines should fit well into the existing business model.

  • High-End Event Staffing in Kansas City

    Weekly accounts and more work than can be accommodated keep this high-end event staffing company busy. Established in Kansas City for 25 years, clients are corporations, caterers, event spaces, country clubs and private individuals. In any given week, staff are working for 20 clients, with a handful working full time at the back of the house. While 2 key employees handle scheduling and billing, there is a list of about 50 for event staffing, ensuring that the seller can step away for vacations without a worry.

    There is minimal overhead with this business, as only a small office space is leased for interviews and occasionally used by the 2 office staff, who usually work from home. Inventory is small, with 15 – 20 branded aprons on hand for private events. Employees are required to supply their own uniforms, 90% of which can be found at major retailers.

    About 18% of income results from staffing for private parties and social events. A buyer could look to increase this revenue stream, or hire more staff to work with corporate clients and food service companies. There is also a growing need for back end staffing, especially during holidays. This is a great chance to take a well-known company and grow it to the next level with more staff and an ambitious owner.

    This studio is in-demand and waiting for a new owner to keep it growing for years to come. Growth exists in partnering with schools for instruction and studio use, as well as adding more adult classes. A buyer could also consider devoting some space for fitness.

    At a purchase price of $66,000, a buyer paying 30% down could profit $21,829 after debts. This represents a 110% return on investment during the first year.

  • Fine Art Gallery Perfect for Events Pending

    Located in a popular Omaha neighborhood, this fine art gallery is the perfect space for weddings and events. Begun in 1980, the current owner has worked to build decades-old relationships with artists, and the gallery currently houses artwork from over 100 artists across the Midwest and Southwest. The seller is looking to retire, and has started to step back from the business over the past couple of years.

    While the owner still maintains relationships with customers and artists, puts together shows and handles some accounting, there are key employees in place. A manager with 10 years of tenure is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the gallery and handles many of the seller’s duties. To assist the manager are 2 FT personnel and 7 PT personnel. A mover is subcontracted when large pieces are needing transportation.

    Artwork is displayed within the roughly 4,750-sq. ft. facility, with plenty of space to hold small weddings or events. The seller does work with some preferred vendors, and space rental prices range from $1,200 to $1,600. Seating accommodates 150, while cocktail parties can fit 200 guests.

    While the current owner does not actively need to search for new artists, there is room for growth in other areas. A buyer could consider working with corporations and banks to purchase pieces for their offices, or with interior designers to assist in staging or selling pieces to homeowners doing remodels. At a list price of $110,000 and a down payment of only $33,000, this established gallery has great possibility for a new owner.

Specializing in elegant and tasteful events from weddings to corporate parties, menus range from breakfast to picnic specials. With both catering and liquor licenses, the owner has begun offering cocktail-only events without food. This is a great area for growth and promises to be a fantastic revenue earner

    Located in a strip mall, the company occupies 3 bays at 2,583 sq. ft., and is leased for $1,750 per month, or $21,000 per year. The large space allows for the 7 kitchen staff to prepare up to 1,200 plates per day. Currently, the busy months of May and June see just 900 plates/day with the remaining months seeing 600 plates/day. This allows for easy growth by up to 50% without the need for additional space!

    Aside from the kitchen staff, there are 2 office staff and 2 packing specialists, as well as 25 part-time event workers. The seller does not prepare food, but does handle billing and meeting with prospective clients, who are 60% commercial and 40% residential. Of these clients, not one makes up more than 10% of sales.

    Looking to retire, the seller will finance 10% of the $382,000 purchase price. Contributing a 10% down payment of $38,200, a new owner could see a first year’s profit of $68,627 after debts.

    The facility averages between 30-40 events per year, earning gross sales of over $179,000 in 2016, and can accommodate 500.  There is very little competition in neighboring cities within a 50-mile radius, and no immediate competition that can match what this place can offer. 

    Staffing is kept at a bare minimum, with three on-call employees and 1099 staff as needed.  There are four owners that operate this establishment, splitting responsibility between bookkeeping, scheduling staff, ordering and cooking when needed.  This business has been a part-time venture, but there has been so much growth that the owners are unable to devote the needed attention to it.

    A new owner could increase growth by booking more events, marketing to professional groups for daytime events, and offer discounts for events that help fill the empty time slots not used during the weekends.

  • 4-Location Gourmet Gifts & Delivery

    With four locations across Omaha and Lincoln, these gourmet retail and delivery stores earn a combined $1.6M in sales. Part of a national franchise with locations across the globe, these stores are the only ones in Nebraska and the only service for Council Bluffs. The franchise has been in the area for 11 years with a unique product and reputation.

    Each store is fully staffed with part-time help and a full-time manager. A delivery van comes with each location, helping to serve the increasing online and same-day delivery sales. The smallest store is 1,200 sq. ft., with the largest two both at 1,600 sq. ft. These locations have strong repeat business. The franchise average puts customers ordering 1.7 products each year, but these stores average between 2.9 and 3.1 products per person each year.

    Sellers currently oversee operations and assist in the stores when needed. Both are passionate about the brand and products, and so spend more time than is necessary within the stores. A new owner could scale back hours to create more passive ownership.

    The franchise values existing stores at $250,000, but these stores are being valued at $240,000 to suit the local market. At a purchase price of $960,000, a bank loan would be partially collateralized by the $135,876 in assets.

  • Furniture Repair & Upholstering with Showroom

    For over 100 years, this furniture upholstering and repair company has built a strong reputation for old-world craftsmanship. Considered a recession-proof trade, this business weathered the recent economic downturn with minimal disruption, and has tremendous growth potential. While this is a specialized industry, there are 6 employees in place to manage the work.

    Areas of growth include adding online fabric sales and hiring an in-house interior designer to help customers choose fabrics. An ambitious buyer could also add furniture and accessories for retail sales, and look to hiring more workers to generate more sales volumes and quicker turnaround time.

  • Fine Art Gallery Perfect for Events Pending

    Located in a popular Omaha neighborhood, this fine art gallery is the perfect space for weddings and events. Begun in 1980, the current owner has worked to build decades-old relationships with artists, and the gallery currently houses artwork from over 100 artists across the Midwest and Southwest. The seller is looking to retire, and has started to step back from the business over the past couple of years.

    While the owner still maintains relationships with customers and artists, puts together shows and handles some accounting, there are key employees in place. A manager with 10 years of tenure is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the gallery and handles many of the seller’s duties. To assist the manager are 2 FT personnel and 7 PT personnel. A mover is subcontracted when large pieces are needing transportation.

    Artwork is displayed within the roughly 4,750-sq. ft. facility, with plenty of space to hold small weddings or events. The seller does work with some preferred vendors, and space rental prices range from $1,200 to $1,600. Seating accommodates 150, while cocktail parties can fit 200 guests.

    While the current owner does not actively need to search for new artists, there is room for growth in other areas. A buyer could consider working with corporations and banks to purchase pieces for their offices, or with interior designers to assist in staging or selling pieces to homeowners doing remodels. At a list price of $110,000 and a down payment of only $33,000, this established gallery has great possibility for a new owner.

    Earn 20% commission on sales delivering brand products to 13 stores in Northwest Omaha!  This delivery route services Hy-Vee, Baker’s Wal-Mart, Target and Fareway stores with a national brand.  Products are stored in a warehouse, with orders received on Tuesdays and Fridays for pickup and distribution by the route driver.  Deliveries are made beginning early in the morning and end in the early afternoon.  While this is a national brand, the only “fees” to corporate are in a weekly rental of a handheld POS device.

    Looking to sell in order to travel and semi-retire, a new owner could easily pick up the route and increase revenue by developing more relationships with existing store management to increase product purchases.  The seller works 36-38 hours per week making deliveries and loading inventory into the truck, which is included in the purchase of the route.  Inventory moves quickly, so there is very little carry over from week to week.  Price at only 1.5 times cash flow, this is a perfect business for an early riser!

  • Respiratory & Mobility DME - 2 NE Locations!

    For over 30 years, this family-owned business has served Eastern and South Central Nebraska patients needing respiratory and mobility supplies, and durable medical equipment.  With 2 locations roughly 100 miles apart, both stores are outfitted with CPAP devices, scooters, TENS units, wheelchairs and much more.  Customers may choose from in-store pick-up or delivery, and many receive routine home service visits and equipment training. 

     

    Each location has a Respiratory Therapist managing the store and 3 customer service reps. Other employees include a billing manager and a service/delivery tech who is on call alternating weeks to provide emergency delivery and service.  Current owners handle A/P, A/R, scheduling and oversight, but are not store managers as they are not licensed respiratory therapists.

     

    ACHC accredited and part of the BBB Honor Roll, current owners have set up a Connect Program that allows for easy outreach to patients needing resupply. While there are local competitors, many are evolving to no longer carry Medicare or provide shipment, leaving a gap for this business to step in.  There is virtually no competition with Lincoln or Omaha markets, as this company is designed for rural populations unable or unwilling to travel to large cities for medical supplies. 

     

    Due to a growing family, current owners are unable to devote the 30/40 hours per week for business management, so the business is priced to move!
