This company has been successfully selling gourmet coffee online since 2005 through its website. The coffee is roasted to perfection, hand-packed fresh, private labeled and drop-shipped to every customer. Orders are processed seamlessly from the time an order is placed online, to payment being accepted by the credit card processor to the packing slip generated at the plant for fulfillment and to ultimate delivery to the customer. Even the back end accounting operates efficiently with funds directly batched into the bank account at the end of each business day and sales reports coming daily from the plant. This business takes no skill whatsoever to run, takes only a few minutes a day while operating on auto-pilot, requires little or no space, has several hundred repeat customers, is well-established, sells a niche branded product of high-quality and has an exclusive dropship relationship with the roasting plant. By purchasing this site, you are acquiring a successful, well established, drop-ship, private brand ecommerce business.
With its mature website, niche branded product, high search engine rankings and exclusive vendor relationship, this website is positioned perfectly for continued natural expansion. Some ideas for future growth include: create an affiliate program, increase product offerings on Amazon, add an eBay store and increase SEO efforts.
With currently very few competitors in the industry, the barriers to entry for any new competitors is extremely high. For the roaster to package, label, and ship the product is very time consuming and this is why they simply will not service another internet drop-ship company like it. Someone cannot simply call the roasting plant and say they want to open or start a drop-ship like this one . They simply will not do it.
