Founded in 1976, this highly profitable service and retail business specializes in custom fireplace installations. Through two generations of ownership, the Company has enhanced many homes, accumulated much success, and fostered a loyal customer base through its quality products and services. The Company offers turn-key installations, design services, marble surrounds, custom wood mantels, and gas piping.
The Company serves an area where seasonal homes, cottages, and Airbnb rentals are flourishing, setting up a future where its products and services are expected to stay in high and constant demand. The Company is located in the town of Harrison in North-Central Michigan, which is the county seat of Clare County. This area is known for its scenic lakes, well-maintained infrastructure, and the Clare County Fairgrounds, which attracts high levels of tourists and event goers throughout the year.
In addition to the Company being a second-generation family business, many of the Company’s loyal customers are also multigenerational.
Even though the Company has grown over 20% over the past three years, ownership (seeking retirement) acknowledges that more energetic/driven ownership would likely be able to significantly grow the business through better use of social media, intentionally fostering homebuilder relationships, partnering with HVAC companies and marketing its service division more aggressively.
The real estate (FMV $415,000) is available for sale with the business.
