This unique business has a creative focus on blended drinks, including smoothies, coffee, adult beverages, and shaved ice for the kiddos.  This business maintains a contract with a local arena to serve at every event with or without alcohol!  There has been over $250% growth from 2015-2017, with unbound potential!  With low overhead costs, college students make for great, energetic and friendly part-time employees.  This would be a fantastic opportunity to make your own schedule, working full or part-time, earning an extra $34K/year with part-time hours alone.


This business is currently operated from a 14’ by 6’ trailer that can be pulled behind an F-150.  All equipment for running this business fits inside the trailer and includes blender, a generator, a 3- compartment sink, a hand washing sink, water heater, shelving, grey water tank, fresh water tank, and coolers with lids.   Currently this shop can be found at local fairs, races, festivals, tournaments, block parties, corporate events, as well as throughout the city on a warm day. 


This great mobile smoothie, coffee, and shave ice business is a local favorite.  Enjoyed by children and adults alike, these drinks are 100% natural and have no artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors.  Making these smoothies is easy, too!  With the proprietary blend of ingredients, quality and consistency are built-in benefits.

Valuation Details

The Firm Business Brokerage used a cost-to-create methodology to determine the purchase price of the business, determining that it would take far more time and energy to reproduce the business as it currently is than to purchase it. All equipment is in great shape and the trailer has been beautifully built out, making it ready for operations!


The List Price for the business is set at $65,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                               $65,000

25% Buyer Down Payment:            $16,250

15% Seller Financing:                       $9,750

60% Bank Loan:                               $39,000

Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $182.

Bank Loan 7-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $570.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 25% down payment of $16,250 would retain a profit of $25,035 which results in an 154% return on investment in the first year.

A lender is required to have a minimum 1.5 coverage ratio for any business loans extended. At a proposed Purchase Price of $65,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 3.78. 

Please note that the decision of whether to extend a loan on any sale belongs to the bank, and this document does not guarantee specific terms or verify that financing is available.
