 History and Overview Of The Business
Fully describe the business's activities  The business is a gas specialist shop that refills privately owned LP gas cylinders and exchanges standard cylinders, also supplies and delivers LP Gas to customers.

Sells gas appliances (stoves, hobs, braais), gas operated water heaters. all sorts of peripherals and spares to enhance outdoor, energy saving lifestyles. Gas purchases and in store advice often leads to installations being done for hobs, heaters and gas geysers and in turn the installation clients return regularly for their gas supply. The buyer of the store can either use the seller going forward for gas installations and he will in turn buy components from the store and also refer clients to the store, or the buyer can have their own installations, this is the buyers choice.

 How Does The Business Operate
How does the business operate on a daily basis The business is staff run with owner oversight but the owner is heavily involved with Gas installations and can therefore not give his full attention to the business
How are the clients attracted to the business? A variety of means such as aggressive website, Facebook, Whatsapp and LinkedIn advertising is done
A very loyal customer base has been built up over the preceding 3.5 years and which leads to a great word of mouth client growth

What Advertising/Marketing is carried out? There are some other clever advertising techniques used which be discussed with serious prospective buyers, this is other than the Website, Whatsapp, LinkedIn advertising.
Does the business have any contract work? No
What competition exists? The competition in the area is from small, illegal rogue gas dealers, as well as the Makro and Builders. The repeat business lies in personalized service excellence and convenience.
Seasonal Trends? The business is seasonal - during summer months more braai's are sold, installed and serviced, while in winter the shop runs into overtime on a daily basis to keep up with supplying the demand for gas. Servicing little roll-about heaters has proven to provide an easy additional income. Any cold snaps in the weather or power cuts see a sharp spike in gas sales. Supplying gas to domestic households for cooking and water heating purposes, provide a more even (and loyal) spread of sales during the year than supplying gas to businesses.

Gas sales currently fluctuate between 5 and 18 tons per month.
