Business Overview:

Price reduced from $495K to just $295K! Seller has other business opportunities and seeks qualified buyer to step in! Wonderful Turn-Key business opportunity to acquire this well-established oyster farming equipment dealer in North Florida. The company’s brand is well known nationwide due to the wide selection of oyster farming equipment and supplies along with the excellent customer service which has been consistently provided. This business distributes products and equipment locally, regionally, and nationally year-round with a very strong presence in the US Southeast. This is not a seasonal business and certainly not a cyclical business proven by the profit figures generated during the 2020-21 COVID period. Rather, this is a well-positioned company in a thriving and rapidly evolving industry poised for substantial growth and expansion. The Seller has extremely close ties with key Vendors/Suppliers as well as valuable lists of repeat and loyal customers. The Seller will also include contacts and business possibilities for brokering fresh oysters. This business can be relocated.

Property Features and Assets:

This company is located 30 miles south of Tallahassee, Florida. It operates from a 2,340 square feet building that is located on a very popular corner of scenic US Highway which is a major north/south artery leading to coastal waters. This building consists of a large 26’x20’ processing room and a 26’x10’ office. Both areas are climate controlled (heated and cooled.) There are 2 walk-in coolers that are 18’x20’, an additional work/ storage room, and 2 bathrooms. The loading dock is 60’ long. There is ample space for parking and plenty of room for oyster farmers and large semis to be loaded and unloaded. All equipment is securely fenced-in with 2 gates, allowing customers to pull in, load up equipment, and drive straight out the other side. The fence and cooler A/C unit were installed new in 2019. Some important upgrades to the electrical and plumbing systems have been done over the past two years. An additional water meter was installed in 2020, resulting in a much lower cost of processing oysters. The building leases for a low monthly rent with a long-term renewable lease agreement in place which can be assumed by a new owner. Assets = $126,418

Market Competition and Expansion:

Perhaps the most important element to the success of this company has been the unparalleled customer service they have extended to customers and suppliers from “day one.” It is apparent that their customers generally prefer to talk with a business that not only has previously sold fresh oysters and oyster farming equipment, but with owners who are knowledgeable and experienced in actual hands-on oyster farming. No other oyster company in Florida has as much national recognition as this business. It is one of the most successful oyster farming industry companies in the southern US and is ranked near the top in the entire US. They are well respected among their peers and competitors. There is huge potential for growth in several areas for a new owner. The only marketing the company currently does is through social media and its website. There are numerous ways a new owner can advertise to increase sales and brand awareness that have not yet been utilized: industry publications, YouTube, Blogs, improved search engine optimization (SEO,) article submissions in journals, email blasts, and targeted industry mail outs as well as improved signage and “story features” submitted to article-starved independent newspapers. There are several aquaculture industry trade shows held throughout the year around the country that a new owner could attend and sponsor a booth as an oyster farming equipment dealer. With the increase in states promoting commercial oyster farming, the corollary increase in equipment sales is highly promising. A new owner can expand the equipment inventory to include other equipment from other suppliers. Since this business is already established as a successful US equipment dealer it would be advantageous for other manufacturers to partner with them. Also, there is plenty of room on their existing property for equipment expansion on an additional one-half acre which is currently underutilized. A new owner could add a metal storage building or add to the fenced area to increase storage for equipment. Another possibility to create additional revenue could include leasing this area to oyster farmers for boat, gear, or equipment storage. This business is also capable of being moved anywhere in the United States since a large portion of the equipment and supplies are directly shipped to the customer. Most of the equipment and supplies do not need to be held in inventory, they can be drop-shipped by the manufacturer or vendor directly to the customer’s location. As more states continue to open additional oyster farming zones around their respective coastal areas, the number of oyster farming sites will grow and increase in size which will help meet the national demand for farm raised oysters. This is a very bullish indicator of the future demand for the oyster farming equipment distributed by this business!

Reason for Selling:

To pursue other interests.
