• Turn-key alcoholic beverage production business. Certain beverages not currently produced could be made with the addition of equipment specific to those products.
• Head Brewer will train, and is willing to stay on after transition
• Seller will sign a non-compete agreement
• Business is operated with just a handful of employees besides the owners
The company’s products are primarily sold in Missouri in the Kansas City, St. Louis, Cape Girardeau, Lake of the Ozarks, Springfield, and Branson markets. In Arkansas, they are sold in Little Rock and the Northwest Arkansas region. They also have a tap room on site where their products are sold on tap and as packaged goods.
Sales at farmers markets and in the tap room are approximately 54% of sales. Distribution represents about 29% of sales with internal wholesale accounting for 17% of sales.
While the distributors in the various territories are marketing the company’s products, the seller feels like they don’t get the attention the other vendors in the distributor’s portfolio get. The seller and brewer feel like they do a better job when they can visit the bars/restaurants/liquor stores themselves, but they didn’t have the time to do the production work and visit each territory with enough frequency.
Regarding distributors, the seller feels like some have not been sufficiently aggressive and should be replaced. He suggests that the buyer take the time to meet and evaluate each distributor and make changes as necessary.
While currently structured to produce a certain line of alcoholic related products, this facility could be used to make other alcoholic products with the addition of some equipment specific to those beverages.
The price of this business is based on the value of its assets, which the seller has estimated at $299,000, rather than on its historic Discretionary Earnings.
The business is operated in a facility that is approximately 6,400 sf. In addition to the production space there is a tap room and office space. The building sits on 1.25 acres m/l. The real estate is offered through VR's sister company, Professional Real Estate, LLC for $400,000.
