Business Overview:

The entire company is comprised of importing, wholesale, retail, proprietary products, retail customers, and a Bay Area office coffee service ('OCS').
The business is engaged in the importation from Europe of highly-sophisticated, 'state-of-the-art,' fully-automated, computerized gourmet beverage bars offering a wide range of product, from simple coffee, to the most complex espresso, cappuccino, latte, chai, and tea, to cold juices. The importation contract is exclusive for most of the United States, and the customers range from other office coffee services to retail customers to bulk wholesale re-sellers, nationwide.
In addition to the equipment, the company packages and retails exclusive, proprietary, private-labeled products coffee, teas, condiments, supplies, etc. that it wholesales as well, nationwide.

The company also operates a complete Office Coffee Service ('OCS') business that provides superior service throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Current and potential customers include business and professional offices, residential living facilities, retirement centers, restaurants, concessions, catering events, medical facilities, day spas and salons, waiting rooms and reception areas, vending outlets, convenience stores, and more. Convenient rental and leasing programs are in place to facilitate equipment sales and recurring monthly revenue.

The company delivers ingredients and service products to its scores of diversified customers on both a regularly-scheduled and as-needed basis. This is not a 'route business' the company has found that delivery via UPS and FedEx is far more efficient and cost effective. Products include the typical generic ingredients and their own privately-branded specialty items.

This business opportunity offers a diverse and extensive long-term customer base, solid repeat sales, an excellent reputation and service record, and sizeable gross and net profits.

The business currently operates from an office-warehouse facility in the East Bay. It employees three full-time employees (including the owner), and a 1/2-time office administrator. For growth and investment purposes, the company can easily be expanded to the OCS market in other metropolitan areas throughout California and the United States, thus employing additional employees.

The company recognizes that it has developed an operational system, a marketing plan, and a product offering that can be scaled very effectively and very profitably, with a nationwide market potential, through aggressive marketing and service activity in key metropolitan areas throughout the country.

This business is ideal for the sole proprietor entrepreneur looking for a turn-key, semi-absentee-owned venture. It is also a perfect match for the existing company in this market sector interested in a roll-up acquisition, taking advantage of the economies of scale for even better performance than experienced by the business to date.
Financial information for 2016 appears in the accompanying file. The estimated Seller's Discretionary Earnings ('SDE') are calculated, subject to buyer's verification. Upon discussion with the seller, a serious buyer will be provided all financial statements for the past several years, and, during due diligence, will have full access to all tax and bank records as well.

The current owner (& founder) will be very open to negotiating an extensive period for training and transition. Furthermore, he would be very open to staying on long-term in a management/operational position, even to the extent of allowing the purchaser to operate the business on a mostly absentee basis.

This is for the entire business importing, wholesale, retail, proprietary products, retail customers, and including all related assets and equipment, supply contracts and relationships, customer contracts, database, intellectual property.
