This successful listing details a one of a kind publishing company, which is built on a product line and method of management that revives a sense of personalization in the publishing industry. The company guides their customers through the entire publishing process, from the conception of the product to the sale of the published work and beyond.
The company uses mainly authors localized to their area, each one of their published works tells a story that has been passed down through the generations, and so captures the minds and hearts of readers giving them a chance to participate in a small piece of times past. They have developed a collection of cookbooks, children's stories and books featuring humor and folklore. Their products are promoted through annual trade shows, word of mouth and through their online catalogue. Though not popularized in the book trade, these products are offered to a niche market, giving them a special value.
As an owner operated business, the first publishing began in 1982. Their works are printed offsite in Iowa, through a trusted Connecticut-based printer with whom they share a 15-year business relationship. The business is run in a hands-on fashion from a small office with little equipment. They attend an average of 4-7 trade shows a year, which serve in promoting products and recruiting authors. Most of their products are designed for the agricultural entertainment market, which includes orchards, wineries, berry patches and pumpkin patches. However, some of their products are featured in town gift shops and book stores. The current owners have reached the age of retirement and hope to find a qualified buyer with the drive to take advantage of the many promising growth opportunities this business offers.
