Growth & Expansion
The company may greatly benefit from a highly motivated new operator who has a vision for expansion, product extensions or other forms of growth. This may include outsourcing manufacturing to a lower cost provider as the expense associated with running the operation in-in house is comparatively high. Along with new product development, which is already underway, the company could explore private labeling variations of its products for others as they already done for a major label. Large margins may also be realized in the launch of other clothing products, which can be sold through the same retail channels but could be expanded to include traditional clothing stores. An additional area of growth includes expanding on company’s efforts and the progress they have already made in selling direct to consumers online. Finally, marketing benefits may be realized via “Made in USA” branding
