General description

SALE TO INCLUDE AMAZON LISTING WITH BRAND REGISTRY & HEALTH / BEAUTY CATEGORY APPROVAL The Modern Innkeeper is an online resource for design conscious hosts. We primarily serve the needs of small hospitality entrepreneurs (owners of vacation rentals, farm stays, campgrounds, small Inns and B&Bs). Our amenity kits are available for purchase in small quantities at an affordable price, allowing those with space and budget concerns to offer their guests the same details as a larger hotel.

Why should someone buy this store?

It is a great business for anyone in the hospitality industry, and anyone wanting to sell in the Health & Beauty category on Amazon. I have an Amazon account with approval to sell in the restricted category and I also have brand registry, both are not easy to obtain.

How can the future owner improve the business?

Create more kit styles to appeal to different styles of accommodations, grow social media following, create new listings on Amazon with enhanced brand content, etc.

What work have you put into the store?

I started the business in 2015 and worked hard at finding a sales outlet for the kits, first through direct sales and eventually I found success through Amazon FBA. I ordered 5,000 custom kits from China initially, and by the time I sold out of the kits I had started a new business with my husband that I focus my time on. I designed a new kit and ordered a smaller quantity of toiletries through a US supplier, which I have sold out of as well, I just don't have the time to keep up on the business any more. I believe there is a lot of value in it for a new buyer with a fresh perspective and interest in the product, and I have a lot of insight on how to make the business grow, I just don't have the time to do it myself any more.

Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

Other details about profit: I sell the kits in cases of 8 or 12, I tried selling single kits but they aren't as popular. I found that the sales were best when the kit price was around $5 each, but you would need to order at least 5,000 kits to get the price down enough to still have good margins. I was selling 50 cases / month when they were priced under $5.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would focus on Amazon FBA sales, I think the business has the potential to be a great source of passive income.

    Skills to have

    If the new owner had experience with Amazon sales I think it would be very beneficial to the growth of the business.

    Modern I.Running this business for over 3 years
    My name is Grace, I have been in the hospitality business for over 15 years. I operated a small Inn and vacation rental for about 8 years and found that there is a lack of toiletries available to small property owners, especially vacation rental owners. I created these kits to fill that niche. I am also a full time wedding planner and I co-own a high end food business with my husband.
