SELLER’s TESTIMONIAL: Selling a C-Corp business is complicated and challenging in many respects. Starting with finding a broker I could trust and would act in my best interests. My top priority. Jeff Adam with Adam Noble Group was my choice and I will be eternally grateful for that choice. I could go on and on about the positive experience I had with Jeff but I’ll summarize with this. I had high quality offers day one on the market and an agreement by day 2 and had other offers waiting. I thought it may be months to sell. I am 100% confident you will not find a better broker to work with who will operate at a very high standard of effort, integrity and professionalism throughout the process in every way. I would not want it any other way and if you want what I believe to be the best in the business then start with Jeff Adam. You will not be disappointed if you make this choice.

SOLD !! Closed in 30 days with multiple offers! We can sell YOUR Mail-Pack-Ship Business, too!
The business location is in a very favorable economic demographic area. Within a 1-mile radius, there is a 50% commercial and 50% residential mix. Over 60% of the residents within this radius have household incomes exceeding $175,000. This very loyal customer base is economically upper middle class with discretionary income to spend on conveniences and services that save them time.
The owner works onsite 2-4 hours/day but often is working on other personal/business matters. The owner is not required to work on schedule but will work to cover store when employees are on vacation or executing outside sales such as freight pick up, estate sales etc. The seller states that the business has excellent books & records and is able to prove all sales & expenses.
The customer base is small-office/home-office (SOHO) businesses, corporate “road warriors”, homemakers and schools. The owner estimates the customer base is approximately 50% residential and 50% business customers.

The owner feels that a major advantage over competitors is the trained, motivated, professional employee team, the choice of multiple shipping services, the longevity of the same store in one location and long-standing relationships with customers. The customers are happy with the service and committed to using the company. The business is recession-resistant, and a new, energetic owner can further increase sales & profits in many ways such as 1) continue growth of highly profitable mailbox rentals (growing ~47% annually since 2019), 2) expand high quality custom packing and freight preparation services by leveraging strong reputation, 3) continue adding national services through industry association, 4) continue virtual mailbox growth (very little incremental cost), 5) promote freight services.
PURCHASER’s TESTIMONIAL: My name is Ted Sanders, and my daughter, Farrell, and I recently bought a business together that is located in Fort Worth. Jeff Adam with the Adam Noble group was the business broker who handled the sale.
I highly recommend Jeff to handle either the sale or purchase of a business. The initial informational “package’ he put together for this business was very thorough, detailed, and well put together. We have looked at several other businesses for sale, and felt that Jeff’s presentation was the best we saw.
Jeff was very professional but also very personable. He answered our questions and addressed our concerns promptly. He made himself available any time and any day, and returned our emails, phone calls, and texts promptly as well. He made the closing easy, and has continued to stay in touch and support us after the sale was completed.
We were very pleased with the entire process.
Sincerely, Ted Sanders, CFBB, LLC

All financing is to be personally guaranteed. The assets include inventory at cost of $9,500, Accounts Receivable of $00 and FFE valued at $50,000.
Competition: The retail shipping industry is very competitive. Barriers to competition include lack of available retail space to build/open a business with comparable easy access. The business attracts customers from a 10-mile radius including some commuters who live outside this radius. Despite the presence of well-established competitors, the owner feels that customer service at the store is outstanding; employees are professional, well-trained and knowledgeable to operate the front of the business, pack, ship and sell. Customers are prepared to drive to this store for superior service and convenience.
Growth & Expansion: The business has built a strong reputation over 20+ years for quality and specialized work. Much of their current business comes from referrals and often as much as 30 miles away. The Primary Target Market consists of a 50% consumer and 50% business mix within a 1-3 miles geographical radius. The seller has used the location, signage, word of mouth and friendly service to build the business.
The primary marketing strategy is word of mouth, occasional radio/publication and social media to customers/clients/businesses who need these services. Networking and referrals are the main method of marketing; minimal Internet marketing has occurred.
A new, energetic owner can further increase sales & profits in many ways: 1) Mailbox rentals are a significant source of BOTH income and regular, returning, loyal customers. The owner advises that there have been no increases in several years; the rates could be increased based on a market pricing review. 2) Add mailboxes (business has been typically 100% rented), 3) Promote social media reviews on Yelp, Google, etc., 4) Adding business-related services such as large format printing. 5) Direct mail to local home-based businesses, 6) Marketing to local businesses and medical offices to develop house accounts, 7) Evaluate adding fingerprinting services
Support & Training: Seller will train buyer for 2 weeks included with the purchase price. Seller is willing to provide additional training or support at mutually agreed compensation for up to 30 days.
