Business Story

Why this business was started

There was a huge gap in the Canadian activewear market. Canada didn't have much to offer other than Lululemon, and I really wanted to fill that gap with ethically made, high quality activewear. I wanted to offer a variety of brands so customers have a selection and can find what works for them.

The reason of selling this business

I have taken it as far as I can and it is time for my next challenge! Sweat Society needs someone that has more experience in online marketing to really allow it to fulfill its full potential

What's involved in running this business

Sweat Society is an online ethical activewear retailer. Creating and maintaining a strong online presence is key. Great customer service is required to maintain high customer return. Buying from our wholesale partners, while continuing to research new brands. Receiving new product and inputting it on the website. Fulfillment of online customer orders.

This business was founded: almost 7 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 20 hours per week

Other details about profit: Sweat Society was grown with zero investors or loans. Everything that the company made in the first 3 years (2015-2018) was put back into buying inventory and expanding. The profit margin above takes this into account and was calculated from 2019-2020. The profit margin includes the COGs - product purchased; shipping (including materials to ship); Labor (when needed for shows/events); domain; shopify charges and monthly expenses which include - advertising, bank charges, dues/subscriptions (quickbooks; gmail), legal/professional fees, utilities (internet, mobility). Expenses are all subjective to what the buyer wants to include, and how much they want to spend in each category. We did a lot of pop-ups and events which were always very successful, and travel was an expense for these shows. But as Sweat Society is being sold as an e-commerce, these expenses were not included and there was not a lot of travel in 2019-2020 due to COVID. If the buyer is wanting to create additional revenue outside of e-commerce, things like yoga festivals, and local pop-ups are a great way to get in front of the customer.
