We currently employ approximately 40 people.
1 part-time office manager who works out of a home office; 1 full-time customer service/sales person (on-site); 1 full-time administrative assistant/bookkeeper (on-site).
1 full-time production manager; 4 full-time department leaders compensated at $16-22/hour; 30-35 low-skill production workers who require no formal training and are compensated at minimum wage of $15/hour.
Our company is located in the single city in the United States with the absolute highest minimum wage of $15/hour. The company cash flow generated at this location is approximately $460K.
We recommend moving the company out of our city to increase your cash flow by hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Relocating to a city with a minimum wage at or around $11/hr would increase your cash flow by approximately $300K annually, bringing your cash flow to $760K.
Relocating to a city with an even lower minimum wage would increase your cash flow by approximately $500K annually, bringing your cash flow to $960K.
Our inventory, worth approximately $1.5 million, can be acquired gradually and/or on an as-needed basis to fill your need.
