Business Story

Why this business was started

A friend (and future co-owner) asked me if I wanted to help him start a company - the goal was to create something where we could put our philosophies into the world. The platform turned out to be apparel.

The reason of selling this business

We are selling because it was always a side business of my partner and I and we just don't have the time that it needs to succeed. Growing families and increased responsibilities have made it very difficult to work on the business, so we decided that selling would give the business the best opportunity to succeed.

What's involved in running this business

This business is pretty straight forward - creating exciting, desirable apparel for fitness enthusiasts, and then marketing to our thousands of customers. Day to day operations includes order fulfilment, but that could be handled by a 3rd party fulfillment center.

This business was founded: over 8 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

Other details about profit: Unfortunately COVID really slowed down our progress - when the pandemic started our primary responsibilities required all of our attention and Boxstar got put on the back burner. We never really recovered afterwards, so our profitability metrics are skewed a bit from a lackluster 2020/2021.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The business just needs a solid branding strategy. We did tremendous in our local area, however we lacked the expertise to expand past our local state and surrounding areas.

    Skills to have

    A new owner needs to have a good branding and marketing background and needs to have access to a quality designer who can keep the offerings fresh.

    I am a young entreprenuer - Boxstar was my first brand and it was what I made all my mistakes, where I learned, and where I got my first taste of business ownership. Boxstar was a great platform to showcase my life philosophies - work hard, always aim to improve, don't complain and don't make excuses. Unfortunately, apparel is not a strength or passion of mine, and we weren't able to keep up with the constant need for new and fresh product offerings.

    Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores

    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.
