  • All customers are C.O.D.
  • Little competition
  • Suit entry level buyer

Sales are around $350K PA with profit to the owner of $100K.

Due to an ongoing health issue, the owner is not able to do much manual work. This means he has to employ staff to undertake work that he used to do himself. A new owner, able to do the manual work is unlikely to require the extra staff and therefore profit will increase very quickly.
