  • Being so long established and trading for the last 26 years (only 2 owners), this current owner has operated this part-time, flexible and home based direct import, national wholesale distribution and online business for the last 15 years. Earning a comfortable and near predictable income, as enjoys a high gross profit margin after doing so little marketing, yet, achieves a steady stream of income from a diversity of different sales pipelines!
  • Due to health concerns, full retirement and the transfer of this business is now required for the first time after 15 years. There being so much latent potential which could be realised nearly immediately for any new owner or existing pet industry business, no matter their skill level or industry background.
  • The sheer uniqueness of this business’s product range and own branded products have kept competitors at bay, and provides a high barrier to entry!
  • Much of this business’s on-going and inbound based sales are generated via existing client referrals, organically generated word of mouth within the greater national market. New and existing clients purchase and return, with some clients having remained loyal for 15-26 years! Online sales have just continued to grow! No social media has been done to date, nor direct email or other related marketing to the existing wholesale business stockists, nor the 11,000 client database on file (approx.).
  • This baby boomer owner is not tech savvy, nor is proficient in online webstore marketing, but has done well – online and webstore sales being mainly organically generated (very small Google ad Word budget). So much more could be done with the online sales volumes, being built to the new owner’s heart’s content!
  • This unique pet product importer and distribution business is not only benefitting from offering niche and ultimately unique products to clients within one of Australia’s fastest growing and multi-billion-dollar pet and animal related industry, it offers any new owner one of the most lifestyle supportive and low-cost businesses.
  • There is a passive income being earned, and many options to continue to grow this sales base. The product quality, the brands being distributed and the benefits for clients in purchasing them has continued to form the base of this near 3-decade trading investment.
  • All webstore based product orders are paid for upfront, prior to being despatched and COVID-19 only increased the volume of passive and organically generated purchases by end users (full profit margin).
  • The range includes products created and contract manufactured and are unique to this business. The cost of creating these products present a high barrier to entry to competitors and there are so few products which can compete directly with this business’s offering.
  • This business is now ready for any new owner to take to its marketing, with so little having been done over the years, but sales ensue, nonetheless.
  • This business’s popular and unique pet and animal product range has always remained in constant demand.
  • Suppliers are both on and offshore, with long term suppliers such as contract manufacturers producing this business’s products, and top and world leading international brands, who have made this supplier their distributor and supporting long term, by offering great buy price discounts.
  • These unique and niche products are ‘own brand’ products, plus other popular options, which this business’s clients enjoy purchasing (usually own dogs and or animals). These products are ‘stand outs’, due to their many direct benefits for the user, upon use. This is why multi-brand stores and wholesale clientele have also continued to stock this well-known and renowned brand’s products for years.
  • This is true when trying to compare this business’s own products to the few products that exist within the national market. There are indeed so few direct product competitors able to offer what this business does.
  • The many sales channels for this business have not been encouraged by this owner actively for many years, including less since March 2020 when COVID-19 hit.
  • Tradeshow/events can generate sales of $15-20K (less events during COVID-19), plus, the inbound and passively received import and wholesale national client ordering and web/online ordering activities have increased dramatically.
  • This distribution business enjoys high gross margins, low operating costs and offers any new owner the ultimate benefits of scalability. This part-time hour operation can even be based from the comfort and convenience of a home base. These higher profit margins are due to this business being a direct importer and able to air freight products, rather than wait for sea freight (without them a sure cost difference).

Open to genuine offers by an owner ready to retire due to health concerns. All being for only $99K + SAV ($30-40K approx. of fast-moving stock)
