Description

General description

*** THIS IS A CANADIAN COMPANY :: PLEASE CONSIDER THIS IF CONTACTING US FROM THE UNITED STATES *** Bowzer Box was founded in February 2014. We acquired the company in September 2017. We’re two brothers (and dog owners) with a desire to deliver the best dog-inspired treats and toys with Canadian pride.

We began in a two-car garage picking, packing and shipping each box ourselves. Starting in January 2018, we made the decision to outsource this portion of the business to a fulfillment centre in Ottawa, Ontario to allow us to grow even further.

In February 2018 we launched our new logo, branding, packaging, and website. With our commitment to keep our furry pals, and their pet parents happy, we wanted Bowzer Box to be synonymous with quality dog treats, toys, and the coolest accessories, all sent straight to our customers homes.

Bowzer Box focuses exclusively on the Canadian market. We ship a box of goodies to dogs across Canada stretching from Vancouver to Nunavut and as far east to Newfoundland and Labrador. Our operations are based out of Ottawa, Ontario.

We are without a doubt, the leading Canadian-based box subscription service for dogs. Our brand is becoming well known with dog owners, and their pups, and we have a loyal customer base. The fact that we are Canadian-based and focus on shipping Canadian-made products is what gives us a clear advantage over our US competitors.

Due to the growth of the company and the volume we ship each month, we were able to secure one of the highest partner levels with Canada Post ensuring we’re paying some of the lowest rates for shipping. That being said, shipping in Canada is expensive and we haven’t reached a level yet where we can offer free shipping. This will come in due time!

We also have solid partnerships with several large and small suppliers across Canada giving us access to quality dog treats and toys at discounted rates.

We fully utilize Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to reach out to our customers sending several posts per month and encouraging customer engagement.

Included in the sale are the domain names, the Shopify online store, our customer accounts, email marketing lists, social media sites and digital marketing material. Physical inventory is also included in addition to the selling price.

Why should someone buy this store?

If you're passionate about bringing joy to thousands of dogs each month, Bowzer Box is for you. The emails, posts and photos we receive each month from happy customers will put a smile on your face. This business is turnkey and your success depends only on the amount of effort you want to put into it.

How can the future owner improve the business?

We've really just begun. Our customer-base is healthy and that's with very minimal online marketing efforts. If you're well versed in advertising on Google, Facebook, and Twitter the sky's the limit. There is a very large market of dog owners across Canada. All you need to do is find a way to connect with them.

What work have you put into the store?

We've made significant changes to the company already. We've recently gone through a complete rebranding exercise. We had a new logo, a new Shopify theme, and new marketing materials designed. We've also worked very hard with our friends at ReCharge to fine tune the recurring billing system that is the backbone of Bowzer Box.

Time to run this business: approximately 15 hours per week

Why buy a business on Exchange

Verified listing data

The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.

Secure messaging platform

You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.

Encrypted payment capture

Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.

Take time to inspect the business

Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.

Safe store transfer

When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.

Post-purchase 24/7 Shopify support

Once you log into your Shopify account for the first time and choose a subscription plan, Shopify Support Gurus are available 24/7 to help you with the settings of the store.
