Type of business: indoor plants, plants

The start-up business risk is not relevant because the company has successfully operated since 1982. The business has been through 3 recessions and although it did lose some clients, the business always remained solid and recession-resistant. The Owners have had a relaxed attitude towards growth, relying on referrals, an excellent reputation, and a $220/month Google AdWords account for new clients. Even with this relaxed attitude, the business grew 11% in gross income and 20% in net income in 2015. Someone who is younger and willing to have a marketing program and an enthusiasm for sales could make loads of money. Growth potential is unlimited in a SF economy where the demand for plants far exceeds the supply. Plant care is resistant to technology change.
