Subscription Box Business – $11,000 (W/ Inventory)

About The Business

The business was established in late 2021 to be a subscription box that makes discovering products fun, easy and affordable. Our theory is that life is better when experienced with a good beverage. We search for great products and pair them with an assortment of beverages to create the ultimate sampling experience.

The company was started as a part-time venture for a busy mother and has proven to be profitable and well received in the industry and amongst customers and social media influencers. The company is small and easily manageable with little staff. However, it can easily be scaled to a much larger size if that’s the goal of the future owner. This is a great business for someone who wants to get into the growing and very popular subscription box industry. The foundation is set!

Our current sales model has us seeking products that fall into categories like health conscious, social conscious, new to the market, inspirational, fashion forward, handmade, eco-friendly, clean ingredients, and delicious. With this approach we have been able to share not only some of the best products on the market but also help shine a spotlight on many small and minority-owned businesses that may not receive a lot of exposure. Broadening or narrowing the product categories is easily modified based on the owner’s preference.

Sales Model

We started with a typical subscription box payment model, but discovered this sales approach didn’t work for every customer. We currently offer a few options that we feel improved the overall customer shopping experience, and this approach has eliminated the occasional canceled or deferred order. We proudly advertise as the “subscription box that doesn’t require a subscription.” This change in our selling model became a well-received marketing tool.

Of course, the selling model and type of products offered can always be modified by the new ownership at any time. The website can also accept subscription payments if that were something that a future owner would like to implement again.

Sourcing Products

Sourcing products is fun, and the assortment of items we provide is what sets us apart from other boxes on the market. Many brand partners will supply us with free samples or even free full-sized products. Other companies offer their products at a wholesale cost.  We will be provided the new ownership a spreadsheet that includes various companies we have sourced products from. Sourcing and researching products can be time consuming but is necessary for the subscription box industry. This provided information should be viewed as having great value and gives the new owner a great starting point.

Inventory

The business has accumulated a healthy amount of high-quality inventory. That inventory is a huge asset and should move on to the next owner to be a base to build from. The available inventory at time of sale will be included and will be shipped at the expense of the seller. The inventory will also come with a spreadsheet noting the cost and value of each product, the quantity, and any additional information about the product that we may have available. These inventory counts will also be accurately reflected on the website prior to receiving the products. End of year inventory for 2023 has a wholesale value of $2,000 and a retail value of $9,800.

Company Logo

The company logo was professionally designed when we held a design competition and graphic artists from all over the world submitted their designs. Our logo comes in various designs, colors and in a couple different formats. New ownership will also receive the QR codes that link to the website, Instagram and Facebook sites.

Social Media

Transfer of Instagram and Facebook accounts will come as part of the sale. We are averaging about 800-1,000 new organic followers each month. We are currently over 12k followers and counting!  Taking on a company that already has an established audience, and one that has continual growth is a huge bonus. As part of the sale, a list of YouTube and Instagram influencers that we previously worked with will be provided so that you can reach out to them if you choose to collaborate for some additional marketing exposure.
