This is an opportunity to acquire a 15+ year old business that specializes in cheeses, prepared foods and gourmet items. In addition to the wholesale and distribution business, the company operates a retail storefront in a highly desirable fast-growing area approximately 90 minutes from Toronto.
Key factors making this business an attractive acquisition opportunity include:
- Market Leader positioning in its geography
- Almost even split between Wholesale & Retail business
- Diversification of Revenue and Product Mix
- High Pricing Power and low customer price sensitivity
- High growth desirable location
Products the company offers include a variety of artisan cheeses, frozen prepared food, fresh food, gift baskets and wines. Products are sourced from different parts of the world with over 100 suppliers in the network. The company has a great reputation in its area due to the quality produced, excellent customer service, and strong relationships with customers and suppliers. It offers personalized in-store service, creating a loyal customer base that is not price-sensitive.
The business has been growing consistently with a well-diversified stream of revenue, a liquor license for selling wine in-store, and a high growth potential to expand alcohol sales, home delivery services, and in-store dining. The company’s 6-year average revenue growth is 12% and its 6-year average gross margin is 28%.
This is an ideal acquisition opportunity for a business looking to expand its product line into the niche cheese and specialty goods market in a high-growth area outside of Toronto, or for an entrepreneur looking to helm a thriving business in this highly desirable community.
