Sweetwater Promotional Solutions is a profitable promotional products distributor with a 23-year history in the Kootenays. Services include a full range of imprinted and logoed products for businesses, local organizations, events, and sports teams. Products range from clothing to coffee mugs to pens to ski wear, etched glasses or beer steins, tote bags, and specialty items such as golf balls. Sale includes client list and records, equipment, samples inventory, and supplies.
Sweetwater Promotional Solutions serves businesses throughout the West Kootenays – from Nakusp to Rossland to Creston – with a large number of clients from the Castlegar and Nelson areas. Our customers range from large scale industry to small local mom and pop shops. Typical orders include apparel for employee wear, drinkware for sports teams or giveaways, or specialty items for client giveaways. As a home-based business, it offers flexibility with minimal overhead.
With a large existing client base, new owners can immediately begin earning income after purchase. This business would be a profitable add-on for independent graphic designers looking for a value-added service for their portfolio. Sweetwater also has strong growth potential through youth sporting events in the region- creating custom tees and hoodies for competitors. The current owner has created a small following at figure skating competitions in the region, and there is room to expand to hockey tournaments, gymnastics meets or swim meets in the region.
Sweetwater has exponential expansion potential with the addition of online sales. The current owner has not capitalized on the online market, but the tools are available to do so with many templates and designs available to make it easy. This could capture the market of shoppers who prefer shopping online to purchasing local.
Equipment included in the purchase includes:
• Hotronix® Auto Clam Heat Press

• Shelving units
The inventory included in the purchase includes outerwear, t-shirts, ball caps, drinkware, bags and miscellaneous promotional items.
