Froyo & Smoothie Shop

Business Description

Mountain View Froyo and Smoothie Cafe (MV) is a yogurt, smoothie, and quiet food establishment located at 222 West Midland Avenue in Woodland Park, Colorado. MV was purchased by the current owner in December of 2022, and has continued to serve the residents of Teller County as well as the many tourists that visit the area. The current owners of MV made small changes in the menu, décor, and other areas and business revenues have increased substantially since they became owners nearly a year ago. But the owners had other business interests and have decided that they do not have the time to adequately take care of their other businesses and this store as well.

MV serves several different flavors of yogurt and has four in-the-wall new and ultra-modern dispensers which make it easy for customers to design their own treat with one or more flavors. MV also has a portable yogurt machine which they take to events at schools, parks, and other venues such as Main Street events in the area. In addition to yogurt, MV serves different types of hot and cold foods as well as different types of coffees and cold drinks. They are well known for their specialty hot dogs.

Sales in 2019 exceeded $85,000.00. 2020 happened to be a down year due to COVID. Sales dropped to just over $74,000.00. But 2021 proved to be a banner year with sales coming in about $100,000.00. Sales for 2022 are not exactly known as the business was sold near the end of the year but sales were expected to generate about the same revenue as 2021. 2023 however has shown a substantial increase in sales as the store is now open all year. Sales are projected to reach $140,000.00 or approximately a 40% increase over 2021.

The facilities are located on the main street in Woodland Park. During the late spring, summer, and early fall, the traffic is backed up for miles with tourists coming into and through town to get to their destination. MV is situated just in the right place in town to capture a lot of customers from this traffic. The building has 1570 square feet of space. The monthly rent is $1100.00. The facility has two garage doors in the front which are opened in warm weather providing a great outdoor-type experience. There is parking located at the rear of the building.

Market value of the equipment is $90,000.00 as the yogurt machines are brand new. Inventory value is typically about $15,000.00. Both equipment and inventory are included in the asking price.

During the slow season, the store is open from 12 Noon until 6:00 PM daily except for Sundays when they open at 12:30 PM. During the busy season, they are open from 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM. There are three part-time employees who provide the ultimate in service.

The asking price is $120,000.00 and the owner is interested in reviewing any reasonable offers. Any interested parties should contact Larry Blevins, business broker and owner of American Business Brokers and Consultants at 719-358-3032.

Pizza Restaurant – Take Out & Delivery Only

Business Description

This pizza store began operations at this location in 1983 making it one of the best businesses in Colorado Springs for longevity. The store is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is located in a shopping center very near one of the major streets in the area. The shopping center has just been purchased by new owners and they are beginning the process of renovating the entire center making it a more attractive center for all customers.

This pizza business has a phenomenal 40 year history in the same location. It had the same owner for 39 of those years and is one of Colorado Springs oldest and independently owned and operated Pizzerias. Due to health reasons, in 2019 the owner decided to scale back the business to a seasonal format and shorten daily hours of operation from 76 to 52 hours per week. In 2021 they were open only 32 weeks and still made well over $100,000.00 owners discretionary income. In fact in the 3 years since the change in format, and even with Covid related issues the business has consistently made over $100,000.00 in income each season.

The center where the shop is located was recently purchased and the new owners will require all businesses in the center to be open year-round. Therefore, the owner decided to sell the business and retire. A new owner would be required to keep the store open 12 months out of the year. But, this would also significantly increase revenues and profits. Typically, there is a lot of pizza sold during the winter months and especially during football season. There is also the opportunity to easily expand daily business hours back to 76 hours per week. A new owner would have the ability to earn well over $200,000.00 annually.

In November of 2022, a new owner purchased the business. This new owner and his wife created a new menu, purchased two new ovens, a new POS system, and even spent $32,000.00 on a new electrical panel updating the electrical grid in the location. There were other modernization changes in which they invested. Sales have been averaging over $28,000.00 per month and have increased to over $30,000.00 currently. The new owners promoted two of the employees to manager of the store and manager of the kitchen. The new owners had hoped that the store could run and make substantial profits with this existing status. However, they found that they needed to be at the store nearly every day. And the new owners had existing full-time jobs. The end result was that with all the increased expenses and time involved, they felt like they could not continue on physically. Therefore, they have decided to sell the store to someone who can spend the amount of time necessary to continue the legacy of the store.

On an annualized basis, the previous owners were netting an average of between $13,999.99 and $16,000.00 per month. Of course, at the time of the sale, they were only open 32 weeks out of the year. The new owners and the upgrades and additional advertising should allow an on-site owner to net the same results. But most importantly is the fact that this business needs an on-site owner.
Their pizza selection is varied and has many choices. Not only do they provide pizza, they also provide other Italian delicacies such as Stromboli, Chicken Parmigiana Fettucine Alfredo, Spaghetti, and a variety of popular appetizers. Customers have said that this is the best pizza they have ever eaten, and with hundreds of 5 star reviews on Google and Yelp this is one of the highest rated Pizza Restaurants in Colorado Springs.

The new owners have adjusted the store hours so as to take advantage of the prime time slots for the greatest volume of business. A new owner could change the opening and closing times to possibly increase the volume of sales. A reduction of staff would also most likely provide additional profits. And since this business is not a sit-down store, there are no servers to hire and employ; only pizza makers, clerks, and drivers.

QUARTZ FABRICATION for the Electronics Industry

Business Description

This company is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They are a highly-reputable company performing work for both smaller and larger companies like Texas Instruments since 1988. This is a very unique opportunity as the owner is retiring. The owners have built a company with a great reputation and high integrity and have provided excellent service to their customers. They employ only the highest-trained employees in the industry whose goal is to make this the best quartz fabricating company in the country. The owner is older and has been running the company without any extensive business background but has been successful. The company needs some “new blood” ie; a new owner to take charge of administration and operations and take the company to the next level. They have a sales person who has been there for many years but has to spend a portion of his time helping to manage the plant. All the equipment is in place for this company to increase sales up to several million dollars annually. A full-time sales person could be very instrumental in this endeavor.

The company leases its 18,6000 square foot facility from the owner and it is to be sold along with the business. Orders are coming in on an accelerated basis as the microchip industry is growing. The new AI industry is poised to have substantial growth during the next few years which should mean a substantial increase in orders. $5 million sales annually is not beyond reason. The sales/order backlog as of the date of this listing is $2.8 million which will allow a new owner to get off to a great start. The company is constantly bidding for new projects.
