How would you like to own a business with virtually no natural competition and built-in vendor programs and relationships with national level insurance companies that generate business all day and every day? If so, this is your new business!

If you are in the construction, home improvement, kitchen remodeling, furniture repair, or damage mitigation business now, this is your ticket to business owner ... or if you just want a solid return on your investment, this is a great opportunity for you.

This established, profitable and highly specialized franchise business focuses on bringing cabinets and wood furniture back to life after the adverse impacts of fire and water damage.
Leveraging a family history of woodworking and originally coming from the home construction industry, the seller launched this business in 1993 and has enjoyed many years of growth and profitability. By partnering with a highly-respected nationally known furniture restoration brand, the success formula is established and ingrained:

1) An intense dedication to quality and customer satisfaction
2) A well-trained team of professional woodworking craftsman
3) Extraordinary attention to detail that goes beyond the competition
4) A healthy network of insurance company/mitigation company partnerships

You will not need to be an expert woodworker to own this turn-key business because the equipment and inventory is already in place, the employees are trained, dedicated and motivated, the building is out-fitted and located conveniently to the customer base and the insurance relationships are long, tested and loyal.

This business is firmly established, profitable and has upside growth potential especially when considering an excellent brand image and low competitive presence in this geography. This business has also been lender pre-qualified and a loan term sheet is included with the marketing materials.

Property Information

Premises Details:

The operation is housed in a light industrial condo unit (2,835 sq. ft.) and features a large access garage door, conditioned office space, restroom, separate customer entrance, wood workshop, staining & painting room, equipment and inventory storage and parking spots for employees/customers.

The owner is offering the building for $349,000, which is based on a recent comparable sale in the same condo unit. There is very little light industrial inventory in this excellent location which makes this real estate very desirable. Alternatively, the property can be leased for $3,000/month on a 5 year term with renewable options and/or future purchase option available. The tenant would be responsible for utilities and condo fees (which handle lighting, sewer, water, landscaping, trash collection, insurance and taxes). Landlord would cover any interior or exterior maintenance expenses.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

The business model has evolved over the years and now is centered on two of the more profitable sub-segments in the industry: 1) Water/Fire Disaster Restoration and 2) Personal Furniture Repair. The exciting part of this offer are the other growth options that are available to pursue, including Commercial (Hotels/Restaurant Furniture Repair), Office Buildings, Retirement Homes and Colleges.

Competition / Market:

This specialized disaster restoration business is not heavily populated in this geography due to the specialized nature of the work, the well-know quality reputation of the offered business and the strong, established working relationships already in place with insurance companies and disaster mitigation businesses. The kitchen cabinet competition comes from companies engaged in offering discretionary re-modeling projects and/or cosmetic cabinet re-facing which is not the target customer base or service offering from this company. This business has become the cabinet/furniture disaster restoration market leader in the area over the last 2 decades.

Owner is retiring from the business after 26 years.
