About the Business
Contact the Seller
- Year Established:
- Number of Employees:
This business is presently being operated from a building on the Seller's property and is used primarily for administrative purposes and it also facilitates a small showroom for some of their stove & chimney product offerings. The buyer will need to allow for costs associated with operating this business from another site or home-based location.
There is relatively low competition in the area, however, this business has a huge referral and relationship built customer base established since the early 80s. They are a premier turnkey service provider and can also supply and install new stove units supplied direct from the factory.
Growth & Expansion:
The current owner does a large mailing once each year to over 11,000 homes. Deluxe flyer is sent to all customers for past 35 years and helps keep 4+ crews busy all summer! Each year every active customer receives a magnet and fire-starter kit gift to promote business. Steady gains in market shares has been obtained and maintained. Owner stated "We have ran our business with our heart" and insists on taking an extra step to achieve customer satisfaction. They also have a website for attracting new customers. Most of the company's income revenue streams in from service work. The largest potential for growth would be to add a sales person and increase marketing efforts into both residential and commercial (basically untapped) markets. The new owner could also elect to add a retail store front to attract new business and increase the retail sales revenue component of the business.
