Market Outlook Competition

The business has an immediate 20% growth opportunity in the first two years conservatively as the owner has not actively added new products or customers in the past three years. This is a particularly strong opportunity for a company currently operating as a meat distributor, frozen produce distributor, conventional food distributor lacking a Hispanic food product line, or an international grower looking for an established distribution company in the Midwest.

Management Support
Yes the owner will agree to a consulting agreement for up to 12 months to support the transition and introduction to the entire current client base.

Cash Flow Comments

EBTIDA has been averaging 6-7% of gross revenue for the past five years consistently. The current owner maintains a very limited but seasoned staff with an average industry experience of at least 10 years and 4 years at the company. The current product line is also specialized offering wider margins that more conventional produce. Depending on structure and product lines the margins and can be expanded or maintained while greatly increasing the top line numbers.

Gross Revenue Comments

The gross revenue is stable and consistent not being below $6MM for the past five years. As a second generation operator of the business the established network and client channels help reduce exposure to seasonality, production, collections, and new competitors. The unique luxury of the real estate allows a potential buyer to resell the business and remain a landlord generating at least $21/ SQ Ft on a true NNN basis. The Chicago International Product Market is an almost necessity as a location for any established food distributor which allows for the rent premium opportunities.
