Headquartered in the Midwest, the Company (“Project Eden”) is an established garden center and commercial landscape contractor rooted in a growing metropolitan area. The Company features consistent high-margin cash flows made possible through conservative business practices over the last 55 years. These practices have allowed the Company to maintain a stable workforce that saw minimal impact throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, unlike many similar businesses.
Eden offers diversified services in the form of a retail and wholesale garden center in addition to landscape construction for the commercial sector, and, to a lesser extent, the residential sector. The garden center provides consistent sales year over year and maintains exceptional margins by growing ~95% of its plants in-house. The landscape construction segment allows Eden to take advantage of additional upside through project-based revenue on large one-time projects. The Company maintains a stable level of projects per year as it is the preferred contractor for many large companies and institutions, including a national retail chain and a nationally recognized university.
Several growth opportunities exist for Eden. The Company could expand its service offering to include more recurring revenue channels such as landscape maintenance, bolster its marketing initiatives for its landscape construction segment, targeting residential markets to capture greater discretionary spending during economic upswings, and develop the workforce to increase the capacity as the current facility and equipment are not fully utilized by the Company.
Two active owners perform managerial tasks, but the Business is also supported by an experienced internal team. The owners are interested in selling the Company to a buyer who can continue to benefit from the firm’s established reputation.
