Potential Cash Flow
This greater Los Angeles area specialty grocery market and food label has been professionally branded to be the first in a potential specialty supermarket chain and national food brand. The market’s recent relaunch included a complete systems overhaul complete with a fully integrated point of sale that allows this concept to become highly scalable on a regional basis or across the U.S. and beyond. In addition to boasting the largest variety of niche market foods in its product category, the inviting location offers its loyal patrons a bustling restaurant, a deli, butcher shop, fish counter, bakery products, as well as take-out and catering services – all of which have recently been upgraded and modernized. While the venue has a specific client base, the market is embraced by its target and non-target clients alike and has become a neighborhood favorite due to its convenience access, comprehensive offering and onsite dining and take-out dining options.

While traditional ‘mom and pop’ style competition exists, none are as professionally organized or branded as this venue. Competitors emulate the traditional small neighborhood markets found worldwide, while this one provides a comprehensive service and food offers that only larger chain stores are typical able to deliver. The market also boasts a selection of ready-made food that can be catered, taken-out, delivered or consumed onsite. In fact, this segment of the business is so popular that they have developed plans to double the kitchen’s output. The market’s sales increased 10.0% in the first year of its relaunch, despite being closed several days and operating without beer and wine sales for the entire time. At the same time, their customer service policies and customer embraced loyalty program have resulted in stellar reviews that competitors find difficult to match.

It is anticipated that the concept will be embraced in cities such as San Diego, San Francisco and Las Vegas. In addition being able to increaes their kitchen production so they can cater to schools and other potential large scale catering clients, the company has also e-commerce platforms to facilitate online sales and distribution that will allow them to reach customer’s homes. The specialty brand has been similarly professionally developed. Unlike Kroger’s Simple Truth brand and Whole Foods 365 Brand, it is envisioned that this one will also occupy shelf space in major and minor venues next to America’s most well-known labels. Alternately, they can co-produce / co-pack for major labels whose products do not meet their production criteria. They are also working on potential additional brands.
