The current owners purchased the business a couple of years ago and set about transitioning the business away from the more common meat and smallgoods to a gourmet foods and niche product wholesaler/distributor. They identified that there was a gap in the Sunshine Coast market for gourmet distribution with no direct competition. Some of the original lines have been continued, as the product mix worked well with their direction e.g. salads and select continental Queensland made smallgoods. It has been beneficial to continue with the current customers - as well as to introduce new products to those customers. With a preference to Queensland made and owned and then Australian made the next choice - they have sourced new products that fit into the gourmet business direction. This process has occurred over a period of 12 months and includes Segreti, Ronda, Stott’s Delicacies of Queensland, Field Cuisine, Bunny Chow Down, Pied Piper and Ridiculously Delicious. Many of these companies have provided exclusive distribution rights to the business for the area.
The business has recently embarked on supplying food for functions and events as a new channel for sales, which was launched in September 2015 in conjunction with a new website. Direct to public catering cuisine is an opportunity for the public, schools, clubs and groups to buy bulk salads, antipasto, dips etc direct for their event. The website provides order forms for pre-order and a delivery services is a key benefit for the customer. In a short space of time second and third orders have been received from customers.
Further marketing of the wholesale functions/events catering cuisine will assist to inform public of their service. There is potential to expand functions/events catering cuisine to Brisbane.
This business has been well positioned for further sales growth and profit.
