This New Hampshire Pepperidge Farm Combo distribution route which covers Littleton, Franconia, Lisbon, Lincoln, and Woodstock has been in existence since 1989. In 2010, the current owner purchased the business. The business currently operates as a Sole Proprietorship and is managed from the owner’s home. The business price includes the distribution business’ tangible and intangible assets including furniture, fixtures, equipment, intellectual property, and goodwill. Pepperidge Farm is one of the most respected brands in the food industry. As an independent distributor, a route owner enjoys the independence and satisfaction that comes with being a self-employed entrepreneur. Within the geographic region as defined above, the route owner distributes both Pepperidge Farm snacks and bakery items to retail stores located in these communities. There is an obligation to realize the full sales potential of such products within the territory, which is the owners to develop as an independent business. Pepperidge Farm supports independent distributors by hosting a distributor website; conducting national/regional chain promotions and advertising campaigns; offering a toll-free distributor service center; featuring product marketing and in-store promotions; and specializing in state-of-the-art point of sale racks and displays. The benefits of owning a Pepperidge Farm distribution route include a defined geographic territory; excellent brand equity/image; commission earned based on a percentage of wholesale prices; optional two week support services with experienced Pepperidge Farm team members; premium quality products; and the ability to own and operate as an independent distributor.

Competition Description

This is a protected Pepperidge Farm territory.

Growth / Expansion overview

Because the current owner has taken on a full-time job as a grocery store general manager, he has hired an individual to handle his route. This has obviously changed both the economic and efficiency dynamic as a Pepperidge Farm distribution route is intended to be owner operated in order to maximize the economic benefit of the route itself. A buyer, operating the route as an owner operator will increase Seller’s Discretionary Earnings immediately by maximizing efficiency as only an owner operator can do. The seller believes that there are expansion opportunities within the stores which are currently being serviced as well as seeking out additional retail stores to service.

Support / Training Comments

The current owner is willing to stay on and train for two weeks after the transfer of the business at no charge.

Financing Comments

All deals are financed through a Pepperidge Farm approved financial institution.

Reason For Sale
The seller has been operating this business remotely with another individual actually servicing the route. He is currently employed full time in a job that does not allow him to also be an owner operator of this route.
