Stuart Gross just launched a new listing:

Set Construction for Film, video,trade shows Asking: $349,000 * Gross: $843,272 * Net: $161,000

This exciting creative and fast paced business builds sets and key props for the photographic, film, video and trade show industries. Most of their clients are either photographers, art directors, set designers, directors, production companies or trade show producers. They construct, deliver, install and store the sets used for photo/video "shoots" and shows. They have a lot of repeat clients. Nearly half of the 70 clients per year are repeat business. They have a small staff and use freelance skilled set construction people on a project by project basis. The business is profitable, growing and quite manageable. The owner does not do a lot of marketing and relies mostly on word of mouth (and a little bit of presence in trade resource books) so there are many opportunities and ways to expand the business and plenty of room for growth. The owner is moving into related fields of design and photography and will probably end up being a client of the business. The shop is located in Downtown LA which is central but the particular local is not a critical issue for the continued operation of the business. The business occupies about 40% more space than necessary and significant savings (up to $40,000/year) could be made by sub renting space to related businesses or moving in 2 years which would be quite simple, inexpensive and not very disruptive. The ideal owner should have some creative and construction experience. The business comes with the two necessary truck vehicles and all of the tools and equipment necessary.
