Gator Business Sales are pleased to be able to offer for sale New Forest Bird Foods, a very well established and consistently profitable distribution and online business.
As its name suggests, bird foods are the principal source of income, and the business provides a free delivery service via the company van to customers within an approx. 30 mile radius of the owner’s base.
Alongside the local distribution is an online presence (own website, Amazon and eBay) selling items such as feeders, nest boxes, bird tables, bat detectors, accessories, etc.
The current split of the business is approx. 60/40 in favour of the bird foods delivery. The vendor undertakes all aspects of the business himself, including the local delivery service.
New Forest Bird Foods traded strongly, without interruption, throughout the Covid pandemic. The business gained new customers during the initial lockdown, the majority of whom have been retained.
This is a planned retirement sale after more than 18 years of profitable ownership. The acquisition will be particularly suited to an individual or partnership already based in, or close to, the New Forest area, and able to replicate both aspects (local delivery service and online sales) of the business to maximise turnover and profitability.
PLEASE NOTE: THE VENDOR HAS REQUESTED THAT NO DIRECT APPROACH SHOULD BE MADE TO THEM, AND ALL REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION NEED TO BE MADE VIA GATOR BUSINESS SALES.
