First established in 1964 this family owned wholesale fruit & vegetable business has weathered the test of time to forge an enviable reputation for consistently producing quality produce to both wholesale and retail customers. The owners of the business are experts in the food service and hospitality industry providing wholesale and processed fruit and vegetables daily to customers throughout the region, offering an extensive range of products:
• Nursing homes
• Armed Forces
Last year the business opened a retail store attached to their warehouse, whilst providing an extra income stream, the retail side of business is booming with happy customers purchasing quality fruit and vegetable at wholesale prices. The business also provides an important service to local farmers who don’t have the capabilities to distribute their produce directly to customers. Surrounded by a fantastic array of local produce, the business, where possible, will support local growers.
Wholesale customers either fax, email or phone orders through the previous day for next day deliveries. Most customers pay COD with some 7-14 day accounts also active. The current owners have developed fantastic contacts at the Brisbane markets, who are happy to deliver to the warehouse twice a week. This saves time and money by not having to travel to Brisbane weekly.
This is a cracking business having been established for over 50 years, profits are excellent, large customer base, two income streams (retail and wholesale) and most importantly the business has no competition in the region, and has plenty of opportunities to expand the business.
Ample time will be provided to the new owners for training and introduction to suppliers and customers.
The business would suite someone with fruit and vegetable industry experience or someone with some business acumen looking for a sea change. An early inspection is recommended.
