Premium Chef Knives if a top destination for fine cutlery. While the focus is on chef knives, we also offer sets, steak knives, sharpening tools and whetstones, cutting blocks, storage solutions, and other accessories. The brands we work with are quality made and demand a premium price. There are very little customer service issues, and shipping costs are low. Marketing the brand is fun and rewarding. This is as turn key as it gets for a drop shipping store. The store is being sold because its owner is working on another project and doesn't have the time to manage. Owner is looking for a good home for a quality website and is willing to share all knowledge and some basic post sale consulting. Feel free tor each out with any questions!

Q & A
Do you work with any employees, freelancers, or contractors?
I use a virtual assistant to help process orders and new inventory.
Why should someone buy this store?
We have built a strong brand, a profitable niche, got the store started with its first group of suppliers and built those relationships that should be transferrable. The store is easy to operate, customer service issues are few and far between, and it is a great lifestyle business.
How can the future owner improve the business?
The future owner can continue where the founder left off and add more premium suppliers to the mix to continue to grow revenue. Expand marketing and social channels and continue to optimize. There is no reason this business can't provide $10,000+/month in profit with some hardworking.
What work have you put into the store?
Branding/design, SEO on page and off page optimization. Product listings and images, SEM, customer product page optimization work.
How many hours does it take to run this business per week?
I started Premium Chef Knives when I traveled the world 2016-17. It successfully provided me with a small but steady stream of income and was a great project for a year or two. When I returned to the states I joined an early stage company which is taking up all of my focus. I don't want my store to go to waste so I am trying to find good new home for a brand I put a lot of work into. With the right approach this can serve as a solid drop shipping business.
