Summary: In business for 20 years, this janitorial supplies business has earned a reputation for its excellent customer service and full line of always in-stock supplies and equipment. Products sold include the traditional lines of paper and plastic goods, cleaning chemicals, gloves, dust brooms and mops, floor scrubbers and pads, vacuums and other miscellaneous supplies and equipment. In addition to the customary commercial business customers, they have developed a strong and loyal customer base of hospitals, prisons, and schools who consistently purchase in volume.


Competitive Advantages: Because of its volume purchasing policy, the company is able to offer its supplies and equipment at very attractive and competitive pricing. Its focus on quick order response and delivery is also an acknowledged competitive advantage.


Opportunities: The owner has been comfortable with the current level of business but indicates that the sales could be grown if additional sales staff were hired and the region served expanded. Also, the business currently has no internet presence and the establishment of a business website would likely bring more visibility and sales.


Facility/Staff:  The business currently leases approximately 6,000 sq. ft. in a commercial warehouse park for a very modest $2,000 per month. The three full-time employees include the owner who handles sales and some deliveries, a warehouse stock person/ delivery van driver, and an office/bookkeeper clerk.


Hours: Mon. thru Fri., 9:00 AM to 5 PM.


Additional: The owner is retiring and will be leaving after an appropriate transition period.
