Business Summary

In business over 33 years this plant wholesaler sells a variety of foliage and blooming plants to plant retailers, nurseries, floral shops, and event planners. Most of the business is potted plants ranging in sizes from 2 inches to 14 inches along with potting soil, supplies and clay pots.
The grandfather of the current owner started after the second world war on the banks of the Willamette River with a small nursery and some green houses. The business has been operated by the current owner since the 80's and has been a family owned and operated business ever since. At this point the sellers are seeking a buyer to continue serving their customers as they are seeking to retire. Over the years this wholesaler has developed an excellent reputation for service and quality products and an excellent client base ready to pass on to buyer.
One of the primary competitive advantages of this business has been their long tenure and reputation in the community. Over the years they have established excellent relationships with customers in Oregon Washington, California and British Columbia and their customer base has grown to over 5,000. In addition, this wholesale provider sources a large variety of plants and many unique highly sought varieties their competitors do not offer.
Opportunities to grow include expanding hours of operation. Implementation of a more robust sales and marketing strategy to expand client base and geographical area served. Increase deliveries providing more contact with local event planners, florists, retail plant shops and nurseries. This business may be an excellent fit for a retail plant or flower shop or an entrepreneur who loves plants and is seeking a profitable, turn-key wholesale plant business with established customers and a proven concept.
