Hilton Smythe welcomes Walkston Candy to the market.
This fantastic online Sweet retailer is now being sold, albeit reluctantly due to our clients relocating. The vendors are keen to see their beloved business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner(s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
We believe that Walkston has unlimited opportunities for development. Although our clients are a top seller on Amazon, they have not scratched the service with the potential the business has, not all their products are listed on Amazon as they are already very busy with what they currently have listed, especially with a few of the products attaining the Amazon's Choice badge. Amazon has offered the opportunity to sell in Europe however, our client has currently turned this down because they could not supply the demand they needed.
Walksons has been in contact with Jimmy Choo, Swarovski and Bacardi asking them to make thousands of products and has recently worked with Harvey Nichols which included working with St Germain, a Bacardi brand at Christmas in making 2,500 candy canes to go in a Christmas Gin gift set, selling in Harvey Nichols across the UK.
Our client has limited space for storing supplies, so they do not have the advantages of buying all the materials in bulk to get a cheaper discount! if they did the profit margins would increase dramatically.
The businesses social media is very good! but it could be a lot more as our clients only post when as and when and with current orders, they are extremely busy. Millions of people love watching our clients make candy and this helps drive sales and attract big clients and influencers.
