GROWTH & EXPANSION
Current ownership believes that the Company is ready to go to the next level under new ownership. Built primarily by reputation and referrals, this company could benefit tremendously from an enhanced marketing program. In 2017, the business invested over $100,000 in new point-of-sale and inventory management systems and over $400,000 in a new warehousing facility. The benefits of these capital expenditures have already had a positive impact on the business, but plenty of room for growth and efficiency still exist. A new owner could easily benefit from the booking of fishing charters. The addition of items such as firearms, kayaks, paddleboards, drones, and GoPro style cameras provides additional opportunities.
