Triple your return with a profitable tile retailer, exclusive suppliers and saleable stock reserves worth $2.4 million at a purchase price much lower than cost. Romano Tiles presents an opportunity to make a significant profit, buy the stock or take the business as well. This is ideal for savvy developers, existing tile businesses, builders or tilers looking to make a big return by purchasing stock at less than cost and selling directly to their customers.

Romano Tiles have a range of kitchen, bathroom, porcelain, and ceramic tiles imported from Italy and Spain, offering flooring tiling solutions that you cannot find anywhere else in Victoria. The current owner is reaching planned retirement and looking to handover this long-established business with a solid reputation.

• Very high gross profit opportunity due to the bonus additional stock provided on sale with $850,000 invested in Est. $2.4 m of stock at value (refer to the stock list in Due Diligence Package)

What makes this business successful?

Romano Tiles is highly competitive in the industry due to its unique range of imported tiles not found at a chain or franchise tile stores. Due to the direct importing of tiles, Romano Tiles enjoys industry-leading margins and a diverse customer base.

Customers will drive the extra distance due to the unique range of Italian and Spanish tiles available. Romano Tiles is also distinguished by having all tiles in stock for immediate customer availability. When a customer chooses a tile, they can have the quantity they need immediately.

The business employs one full-time warehouse staff and 2 full-time showrooms and management staff, plus one of the owners on a part-time basis.

Aside from the great range of imported Italian and Spanish floor and wall tiles, Romano Tiles also offer interior design consulting services, DIY tiling tutorials and delivery services.

The business is located at 126 Canterbury Rd, Kilsyth, with the Showroom and primary warehouse facilities. A second warehouse is located close to enable the business to hold stock catering to the full customer demand range.
