Acquisition Opportunity

Regional Distributor of Beverage and Related Retail Products

Business Description:

Regional powerhouse distribution company has a 40+ year track record of profitability and a 33,000 sq. ft. warehouse. The company’s business model of buying truckload quantities of refrigerated and ambient products and reselling to its customers in the NY, NJ, and across New England at less-than-truckload (LTL) amounts creates a win-win situation for all along the supply chain. The firm boasts outstanding relationships with major brands and its well-established distribution network makes it the premiere choice for emerging brands seeking expansive and immediate market penetration. The company employs a multi-tiered distribution network featuring independent operators, route owners and its own fleet of trailers to service customers of all sizes, including larger drug store chains, dairies, food service operators, coffee service operators, wholesale beverage dealers, candy and tobacco distributors, delis, grocery stores, gas stations, and other businesses.

Operational Strengths:

Ownership and management’s responsiveness to its customers and manufacturers ensures the company’s continued growth and profitability.  Its well-established record of success in promoting new and existing products has earned the company “favored supplier” treatment and guarantees a steady stream of future contracts. Nearly 100% of its business is recurring with a group of loyal customers. A dedicated and tenured staff together with fully integrated custom platform solution provides easy transition for a new owner. A well-organized 33,000+sf warehouse/office space and a large fleet of trailers complete the industry-leading turnkey operation.

The Transaction:

Retiring after 40 years, the owner is selling 100% of the business, will stay on for a 90-day transition period and thereafter, is available on a paid consulting basis to be negotiated. Key managers are willing to remain to grow the business. All company real estate is included in the transaction.
