Russians’ interest in doing business is not diminishing, despite the geopolitical events. A recent study showed that buying a ready-made business in April interested citizens almost 40% more than in February before the crisis. Responding to demand, business owners are actively posting offers to sell their businesses on online platforms. Kompaniya magazine has collected the most interesting and recent announcements, the cost of items in which does not exceed 100 million rubles.
Trade kvass – 1 million rubles
In Barnaul, on the eve of the summer season, a business selling kvass from barrels was put up for sale. “This is a widespread type of business that brings in a good seasonal income,” the owner writes. It has been developing the business for eight years and trades kvass in 11-12 permanent points of sale. Every year the contract with the city administration is renewed on the same terms.
During the season from May to August, the owner employs 15 vendors and two drivers. The barrels are rented by the manufacturer of kvass (rental cost is 49,000 rubles). It is alleged that the company made a profit of 150 thousand rubles a month and will repay in six months.
Women’s clothing brand – 4 million rubles
In Moscow, meanwhile, they are selling a brand of women’s clothing, created in 2016. The owner does not indicate the name of the brand. The brand also does not appear in the photos. “The owner is a well-known fashion expert in Moscow, behind whom is a family succession of sewing traditions,” the statement said.
The brand has a showroom in Moscow. Judging by the address mentioned in the ad, it is located near the Belorusskaya metro station. The brand’s clothes are also sold in partner stores in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The brand cooperates with factories that sew fabrics for the Armani and Max Mara brands.
It is assumed that, on average, a company has a turnover of 1.9 million rubles a month and a net profit of 394.9 thousand rubles. The cost of the facility includes stock balance, exhibition equipment, furniture, legal entity, as well as social media accounts and a customer base with more than 3,000 contacts.
