Business Overview:

This sports novelties distributor stocks over 300 types of products manufactured by over 40 licensed vendors and warehoused in two states. Established in 1990, this Omaha-based company distributes mini football helmets, team mugs, team pennants and more to over 800 small businesses coast to coast. Over 95% of business is done business-to-business with the remaining 5% being direct sales to customers (i.e. “Mom & Pop” stores). In the past 12 months, this company has been granted contracts with Jack Daniels, Harley Davidson and Riddell to distribute their products, making them 1 of only 6 distributors able to do so.

There are 19 employees between the two locations, with a VP of Operations, a General Manager; 2 in sales, 2 in product management, 11 in warehouse, 1 bookkeeper and 1 marketing manager. Manufacturers include WinCraft, Fremont Die, Schutt and more. Customers are offered Wholesaler or Drop Ship Programs, and most orders are shipped between 24-48 hours.

The current owner desires to retire within the next year and is selling the company he has built from the ground up. The business has expanded to include a second location, allowing the business to cut down on shipping costs. Both locations have warehouses and are fully staffed with management and employees who pack and ship orders. Current ownership is responsible for overseeing general business operations and some purchasing of inventory.
