Facts and Figures
Just Party Linen sells event linen for any occasion to customers in Australia. Our product range includes plain and themed tablecloths in all colours and sizes, table runners, chair sashes, napkins, wedding and event decor and more.
How does your business make money?
The business makes money from the sale of event linen and has generated USD$37,000 in profit in the last 12 months. We design and source linen from a reliable Chinese manufacturer/supplier who imports it to our third-party logistics provider in Sydney. We hold approximately $28,000-35,000 worth of stock and re-order every 3-4 months. Web orders are synced and sent directly to the warehouse via SaaS on the hour. The system automatically notifies customers once their order has been picked and dispatched and they are given tracking information. I merely order stock, maintain inventory and respond to customer enquiries. Some of our customers order via email (for larger, custom orders) and we also wholesale to large hotels or restaurants.
Why should someone buy this business?
This is a rare online business opportunity in a niche industry! The business has a great reputation with high customer loyalty. All the hard work has been done, from supply chain to logistics. For an investor, the business would provide a passive income as all customer service and enquiries could be outsourced to a virtual assistant. It also presents a great opportunity for an individual desiring to work from home (perhaps a mum) as it can be operated from anywhere in the world. It would be an ideal project for someone with marketing expertise! While the business will continue to grow organically, there is huge potential to increase traffic to the website and boost sales via social media marketing (Facebook and Instagram) and targeted email marketing.
NOTE: THE PURCHASE PRICE INCLUDES USD$32,000 WORTH OF STOCK.
How can the future owner improve this business?
The future owner can improve the business by expanding the product range, using email marketing to target new and existing customers, improving social media presence and undertaking social media marketing (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube), offering internationally shipping (facilitated by the existing 3PL provider), selling via Amazon Australia and even offering drop-shipping for other party planning websites.
