  • Funding Usage

    We acquired this business from the previous owner with quite a bit of debt. We need cash flow to continue to stay in business. We need to hire outside and inside sales reps to increase business. The pandemic cut our business by more than 1/3. Therefore, many customers closed or now work from home. Our loyal customers are a strong foundation to get back on track with new accounts. We have longevity with our employees and feel strongly to go forward with a successful business.

  • Business Plan

    Hiring outside and inside sales reps we intend to increase our flow of orders and increase sales. Our gross profit is low, however, since 2020 we have worked on increasing the margins. We have very good business partnerships with our vendors and will continue to work with them. Lowering overhead, increasing sales, increasing gross profit we are determined to be a successful business again. We have been in business in California for 75 years and would like to continue the legacy. Taking over an established business in debt gives determination, integrity and hard work a good start. The two minority women who have taken on the business to continue are hard workers. We have been here for 35 and 26 years respectively. We want the business to continue to take care of the other employees who have been loyal to the company for years. We know what needs to be done to get the job done. We need some wiggle room for expenses. Our company has been owned by caring, determined, and hands on people who treated all employees fairly and made a great place to stay and work. Please know we want to keep the traditions going for future employees and families.

  • Self Identified Competition

    Top 3 competitors - Amazon, Staples and Office Depot. We have been in business before all of these companies and are still here able to sell to the businesses at competitive pricing and the best customer service. Our company is local to Glendale, CA and Los Angeles. All the monies spent with us goes back into the local economy and our employees live near by and spend their monies locally. We have excellent knowledgeable customer service that can help in real time. Our own trucks with our own employee delivery drivers are dependable and friendly. Most of our customers know our drivers as they are the same ones everyday.
