    Purchase Part or Complete European Food Importer and Wholesaler Business

      Opportunity Exists to Purchase Part or Complete European Food Importer and Wholesaler Business.

      The business has office space and a warehouse in Sydney's inner city rim. The warehouse site is 4,090 sqm with specialized drive through access for semi-trailers and delivery trucks.

      Currently supplying 900 customers Australia wide, there is potential to increase the growth within the business given that the business does not currently supply to any of the large supermarket chains which could be a significant source of additional revenue. There is also an opportunity to expand into Asia with existing produce licences.

      This is a business that would suit a purchaser looking for an interesting and challenging opportunity that will provide access to many premium European brands. In addition, this may be an opportunity for a current importer to add to their stable of products, with a long established operation and supply chain in place.

      The business currently opens 5 days a week, with hours as follows:
      - Business Hours Monday to Friday
      - Retail Store Monday to Friday 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

      Lease & Premises
      - Sydney-based warehouse and offices:
      - 4,090 sqm site
      - Warehouse with a chilled room, dry storage room, and two freezer rooms
      - Three-story office building with showroom / retail space on ground floor, office space on first floor and storage space on the top floor
      - Drive-through access for semi-trailers and delivery trucks, fully-fenced and secure site Lease

      The business currently employs 15 staff including 3 sales representatives, 3 full time office administration staff and 9 warehouse pickers/packers / drivers. The owner is hands on within the business, overseeing all the day to day aspects of the operation. This ensures long-held relationships and reputations are kept in high regard.

      About the Business
      The business has been in Sydney for the last 30 years, building a highly renowned organization with a proven track record and excellent reputation. The business currently supplies over 600 product lines directly from their European sources, importing and then distributing products to their 900 + supplier chain. Products include dry goods, frozen and chilled foods. Operating from a Sydney site, the premises includes office space and a 4,090 sqm warehouse with drive-in access for semi-trailers and delivery vehicles and also features a retail store open from Monday to Friday so the public can shop for products directly from the importer.

      With revenue currently in the 7 figure range, this business is ripe for its next chapter of growth under the guidance of the new owner. With the potential to establish a relationship with the large supermarket chains in Australia, now is the perfect time for the savvy investor to take advantage of this opportunity.

      Key Points:

      • Exclusivity contracts with approximately 40 suppliers across Italy, Spain and France
      • Large, chilled warehouse facilities with drive-in, drive-out access and space for around 4,000 pallets
      • Quarantine approved premises, adhering to the audited Food Safety Program
      • Receiving in the vicinity of 5 containers of product per week
      • 90-day trading terms with suppliers, 40-day transit terms
      • Over 900 customers, approx. 50% Sydney based and 50% interstate
      • Premium European products with over 600 lines available
      • Small goods and cheese are a particular specialty and among the most popular products on offer

      This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a rarely available very established European food products importer, distributor, wholesaler & retailer. Currently generating a 7 figure revenue, this is an opportunity too tasty to pass up!
