Real Estate Lease Description: The company operates in an owner-occupied facility. Per the Central Appraisal District, the property is 1.21 acres with a main building area of 4,560 sf, a canopy of 420 sf and paving asphalt of 5,000 sf. The real property is included in the sale of the business.
Employee/Labor Description: 3 FT/6 PT
Mgmt/Training Support Description: Will train for 2 weeks @ $0 cost. The shop personnel perform the shelling and require minimal training to perform their duties as the methods and skills used in shelling are not technical and do not require vocational training. The owners currently handle training of the personnel.
Competition/Market Description: The company has very little competition in the shelling market. When the company opened, there were three other shellers in the immediate area. All of them were family businesses and operations discontinued as the owners retired. However, shelling demand has not decreased. As such, there is tremendous opportunity for a new owner to expand the shelling business. Geographic Territory: The company currently sells all of its products in West Texas, Eastern New Mexico, Oklahoma and has no territorial limitations.
Growth/Expansion Opportunities: Growth would include expanding sales in the existing areas of shelling, retail sales, specialty and gifts could be accomplished by engaging in a robust advertising campaign and community networking. Additionally, the 40 pecan trees on the property could be watered and fertilized to encourage crop production. Other growth opportunities include adding an outside sales staff, adding additional equipment to potentially reduce the number of employees needed and the gift sales could be a year round aspect of the company growth.
