Why this business was started
We started this business as side project to make some money and test the market. We saw a huge opportunity in the home garden market and no main DTC brand. We wanted to full that role. The customer focused DTC garden store. 1200+ positive reviews later, we're well on our way. Our site was very well received from day one and has continued to grow since.
The reason of selling this business
Life events have changed our operating circumstances. Founders have moved around the country and no longer dedicated enough time to continue growth. The company can run on auto, but it could do so much better with the right person(s) pushing it forward.
What's involved in running this business
Daily activity on social media and order fulfillment. We partnered with local nurseries for our plants. Ad campaign optimization, email campaigns, and content creation.
Customer focused business offering healthy, affordable plants, delivered straight from the nursery. We partnered with local nurseries that wanted to increase their sales. The nurseries would print, pack, and ship all orders. Customers really love the huge variety of plants and the unmatched level of customer service.
Why should someone buy this store?
Our store offers a new operator a lot of flexibility. You could partner with local nurseries to dropship for you or you could buy plants wholesale and fulfill orders yourself. You could add additional garden categories (pots, care items, decor, tools, etc) and drop ship those. This is a strong foundation business that has the ability to go a lot of different directions.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Research new product categories and products. Further optimize and improve ad campaigns. Watch plant and home garden trends. Open additional sales channels, groupon, etsy, amazon, ebay, etc.
What work have you put into the store?
100s of hours of custom design work, conversion optimization, app integration and testing. SEO, ad campaign optimization, social media management. 1000s of images and videos for website, social, and ads.
