On the Business Front: Cottage Real Food Business For Sale
A friend has a wonderful cottage Real Food business for sale (no actual food involved)! She's done the hard part of creating an affordable, reliable product that is made at home and that SELLS! I purchased several of her products 3 years ago -- I use them all the time and love them.
This is a manufacturing business with an established and growing customer base. The real food movement is exploding: more and more people around the world are looking for ways to improve their health, to enjoy better quality of life. Like us, they want real food: raw milk, organic veggies, grass-fed meats and eggs. And they are growing and preparing nutrient dense food at home. This is your market!
A new owner who is passionate about whole foods would be a perfect fit for this home-based cottage business.
About the Business
A new owner must be someone who wants to make a product at home and does not mind the repetition of making and perfecting a small product. Good hand skills required. You must be able to use scissors, knives, and other small tools. A drill press is required.
There is an up and running website with a fully functioning shopping cart and good Google ranking.
Profit margins are running approximately 60% of sales. The business makes a regular part-time income, requiring part-time work of several hours per week to operate.
This business has never been marketed for sale before. The owner has used only social media to market the products. Sales have grown steadily since the product was introduced, and the future is bright.
The business offers a range of original products (including some unique inventions) which are popular within the niche it occupies.
Buyers LOVE that everything is made in America by hand.
The products will never go "out of style." They are in high demand, simple to use, and affordable.
Many of the products are in various stages of improvement, and the current owner will assist the new owner in understanding how to implement those improvements.
Properly marketed, this business has the potential to provide a very good full time income. Long term growth potential is limited only by the efforts of the owner.
Why is the business being sold?
The current owner operates several small business lines. Simply put, the other lines are demanding more time and energy. This line needs someone who is passionate about the product, about nutrient dense foods and who wishes to be involved full time, rather than as a sideline.
What is included:
This sale includes the website, domain name, some of the tools required for the business (except those common to every household and the drill press). All molds, templates, patterns, supply sources, branding, etc. are included. Current owner will convey complete written instructions for all tasks with photos.
As products are made by hand, there is no inventory to convey.
The asking price is between $45,000 and $55,000, negotiable depending on the situation of the new buyers. Seller is open to financing.
