GSB-59: 4th Q&A Episode | Part-1

In this episode, I answer three questions all related to buying gas stations and how to understand the numbers and if the stores are really making money or losing money. I think you may find this episode helpful if you are in the market to buy a business. Here I analyze some sales numbers and see which ones are making money and which ones are not. Stay tuned.

Welcome to Gas station business 101 podcast, I am Shabbir Hossain, and this is episode 59. This is the show where we discuss how to start, run and grow a gas station business successfully and give you an inside look at many real life case studies so you can follow and be successful in this business.

First my apology once again for not coming up with an episode sooner, I was busy with a few projects and had to put the blog and the podcast on the backburner for just a bit, but I am back, and hopefully I will be posting new episodes sooner rather than later. I still haven’t forgotten about the episode I promised you where I would share the new P&L of the subject store I helped some investors buy about 14 months ago. I have some new updates on that store and recorded that episode halfway through already, which I will share soon I promise.

Now as for this episode, I had to do this one first because I have had way too many emails lately where many of the blog readers and podcast listeners have been asking me various due diligence questions, and it is hard to answer them via email. So I have decided to pick just 6 out of them since they are mostly all similar in nature, and I thought by sharing them with rest of you, it will benefit everyone. For various privacy reasons, I have decided not to mention any names of the people that sent me these emails here.

Let’s dive right on…

 

Question #1

I need your advice about the valuation for the store based on the following information.

Inside Sale# $55000/month (27% profit margin)

$55,000 x 27% = $14,850

Outside Sale# 25000 Gallon/month (10 cents per gallon)

25,000 gallon x 10cents =$2,500

Lottery commission# 4000/month, ATM# $200/month

Total Gross Profit $21,550

Owner absentee

Capability to open deli with grill.

Store located in small town and mostly neighborhood business.

 

Expense:

Rent# 5000 NNN.

Utility# 1300

Credit# 1000

Payroll# 2400 (Two full-time employees)

Other# 500

______________________

Total Expenses: $10,200

Net profit: $21,550 – $10,200 = $11,350

Asking price is $225,000

What would be the price we should go for?

Question#2

Shabbir, here are few questions.

Please note that I do not have prior experience, so how can I convince them that I am serious and are there any training provided by gas companies?

 

When buying just the business, I mean just goodwill without R/E, how do I make sure that my investment is protected? For Example, If I buy the lease for 500k and pay 16K a month. What if the lease is for two years and after two years the owner does not want to renew the lease. How can I make sure 100% that I will not lose everything?  

As far as tax benefits are concerned at the end of the year, which option is better buying or leasing? I would appreciate if you only focus on the tax benefits since you have already talked about pros and cons from other angles. For example, let's say that gas station A is leased with goodwill paid by on-hand cash and gas station B is bought with R/E with a bank loan. Let's say both gas stations have exactly same per month profit after all lease or loan payments.  

Now at the end of the year when I will file income tax, which option will give me bigger return? What is the best way to approach companies which own multiple stations around me?

Question#3

Good Morning Shabbir,

Glad, I ran into your website. I found a gas station business for sale for

$85K. We did our due diligence to look into the traffic, etc. Mostly the sales are from Cigarettes and Beer. The other items are pretty much a stand still.

 

In addition, this station the gas is unbranded. They are selling like 700

Gallons per day, inside the store with the majority of sales been Cigar and

Beer. The sales is about 40K revenue and 35% profit, and expense is about

9.5K. Profit is about $2,750 is what I am estimating.

 

Is the goodwill they are asking outrages? Currently, the owner is not opening the store properly and wants to sell it.

GSB-55: How to Have an Effective Inventory Management System

How can you tell if an employee or customers are stealing from you? How do you know someone is not stealing your beer, cigarettes or other merchandise? Is your business losing money every day and you just don't know about it? Let's see how a great inventory management system can help you stop the leaks, stay tuned..

Welcome to Gas station business 101 podcast, I am your host Shabbir Hossain, and this is episode 55. This is the show where we discuss how to start, run and grow a gas station business successfully and give you an inside look at many real life case studies so you can follow and be successful in this business.

The topic today is How to have an effective Inventory management system. Sounds complicated? It is really not, I will not be talking about any complicated computer program or any such things. Instead, I will take a very simple decade old method that business owners used for years.

If you recall from my previous episode where I talked about various types of theft, then you may recall there are two different ways theft takes place in our business

External Internal External is where your vendors and customers are walking away with your money or products without paying, and internal theft is where your employees are walking away with your money and merchandise.

Since stealing cash is typically harder than stealing merchandise, and we did address the cash issue in the previous episode, let's discuss how we can have a great yet very simple inventory management system to check and see if you are losing your merchandise due to either kind of theft.

First, I need to tell you how big chain stores and companies do their inventory management then I will talk about how we do it.

There are two ways you can do inventory management

Item level inventory tracking Department level inventory tracking Big corporations like Circle K, 7-11, Wawa food and many other regional, local and national chains practice Item level inventory while small business owners like us typically practice department level inventory. Item level inventory tracking is more cost and labor intensive; this system requires more labor and dedicated managers on duty on every shift. Which is usually not cost-effective for most of us small business owners.

First, let's recall your typical merchandise categories and see which ones are more prone to theft.

Typical product categories:

Cigarettes Beer Tobacco Soda/Drinks Grocery Automotive Fountain/Coffee Novelty Let's discuss each category and see which ones are an easy target and which ones are not, also which ones are easy to track and which ones are not.

(Listen to the episode for the whole story)
