Professionally built e-commerce website selling coffee, tea and related brewing equipment for the home user that cost £15,000 to build and register
The site was built as an add on to an existing wholesale coffee business, but due to the sale of that business in April 2018 I am precluded from being involved in coffee or tea for two years.
The site is hosted in Dundee and accessed online so can be relocated to wherever required in the UK.
The site admin panel is easy to navigate and use allowing for it to be adjusted to suit any buyers layout taste.
Currently stock is updated via a Sage link to keep the levels updated to ensure only items available are visible. The products listed are currently supplied by 3 companies - the main supplier can drop ship - the other two require small minimum orders, but obviously you can change the products and suppliers to suit your intended level of involvement.
Ideal add on sales channel for an artisan coffee roasting business or coffee shop looking to promote their own products online or for a fellow coffee 'enthusiast' to take up the reins and make it into the site I believe it can be..
Even the though the site has been 'moth-balled' it still receives occasional traffic..
The business currently has running costs of around £3,000 pa - anticipated average margin on sales is 25% (dependent on product mix). Average sales value of £35 expected - 7 sales a week would be break even
There is also an associated amazon shop which may also be available should you wish to promote products through this channel.
The business is online only
The site was built but has not been promoted due to the sale of my other coffee related wholesale business - this precludes me from selling coffee for a contractual period and as such I am unable to promote it. With dedicated social media promotion and Pay Per Click (PPC) the site would perform well as the average PPC is not too high. A good add on for a related retail or wholesale business or a home based lifestyle business for any coffee and tea enthusiast.
Artisan Coffee and Tea are well established businesses and are popular with those with a higher disposable income - the site is differentiated by focusing on experimenting with different brewing methods to see how the flavour of the coffee changes - not just about the sale of coffee - this will be a by product of attracting people to see what experimenting can be done.. Whilst on the site it is anticipated that they will buy coffee or tea for use through the equipment purchased.
Since being precluded from selling coffee I have started a new business providing finance for businesses and property investors - I no longer have the time to resurrect the website on 31st March 2020 (when my preclusion runs out) but would like it to go to a new home rather than throw away all of the effort expended so far.
The log in for the site admin panel will be available as well as access to the site builder (charges may apply) to take advantage of the features provided in the site. A product list will be supplied to ensure you don't have to input it all over again! I will be available to provide telephone support for a period post acquisition so that you can understand the market and the opportunity at hand.
£2,500 payable on completion - balance payable in equal instalments of £1,250 per calendar month over 4 months - loan agreement signed by both parties on completion.
