Food wholesaler with excellent margins

Active in a local niche market, the company has enjoyed a loyal and diversified customer base for over 20 years.

The company operates mainly as a wholesaler of fresh food products (mainly fruit, vegetables and dairy products) in the heart of a renowned ski resort. It places particular emphasis on the quality of its products and flexibility in its organisation in order to best serve its customers. The company's diverse clientele includes hoteliers, restaurant owners, schools, clinics and hospitals. The latter particularly appreciate being able to count on fresh goods at all times and thus being able to manage their just-in-time stocks to optimise their costs.

The wholesale business generates around 80% of its turnover, i.e. CHF 636,000 for the year 2020. In parallel, the company runs a grocery shop that allows commercial customers to replenish their supplies and private consumers to come and make their purchases. Approximately CHF 159,000 was generated by the outlet in the last financial year. The 2020 balance sheet shows a restated EBITDA of CHF 128,000. During the COVID-19 crisis, the company weathered the situation well. As its products are basic necessities, it had almost no impact on its turnover and its profitability remained intact.

The company is run by the owner and his wife, with an assistant for deliveries. Soon to reach retirement age, the couple would like to hand over the business to a successor motivated to seize the opportunity to perpetuate and develop it. This business activity, which is strongly rooted in the local area, allows any entrepreneur at heart to flourish in the role of a local business that promotes fresh, quality products. It also represents an interesting opportunity for a wholesaler wishing to integrate the very popular local market of this renowned mountain resort.

To buy and operate this business solid knowledge of the French language is a requirement. The entire sales process (documents, correspondence, negotiations, contracts, etc.) is conducted exclusively in French.
