Profile: This guided tour guide business more than doubled in 2019 over 2018. It started as a way just to keep busy but has outgrown the original intentions of the seller. In 3 short years, this business grew from $25,661 in booking revenue to $287,321 thru mid-October of this year. The seller has tapped into venues other than the commonplace Grand Canyon, etc.
The Cash flow equals 64% to 75% of Gross revenue. The discretionary cash for 2019 has exceeded $180,000. The Listing Price of $270,000 is at less than 1.8 times cash flow.
The price includes a luxury 14 passenger Ford van.
This business is located in the heart of the Phoenix retirement communities. Unusual venues create a repeat customer base. Just now taping into two major sources of new business should a buyer wish to really expand the business.
The latest financial numbers take into consideration the hiring of an admin person to handle some of the booking and customer relations activities.
Thinking about moving to Arizona and buying a small business? This is one you should consider. Low overhead, home office operated. Very functional web site for featuring upcoming tours and a very well maintained Ford 14 passenger van.
