HOUSTON, TX, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 08/28/2014 – – Unique Growing Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: ALNE) a sales, leasing, and consulting company providing turnkey solutions to the natural and organic growing industries announced today that it has signed a letter of intent for the acquisition of Washington-based Zaycon Foods, a leading distributor in the all-natural grocery industry specializing in customer-direct delivery of fresh meats.
Zaycon Foods is a leading provider of farm-fresh, high-quality meats, produce, and dairy products. Founded in Spokane Valley, WA in 2009, the company now serves customers in all 48 of the continental United States. Frequently featured on national television programs and in consumer news publications, Zaycon has established itself as an industry leader in the all-natural meats category. Thanks to their “farm-fresh direct to you” philosophy and their unique model of delivering foods in bulk directly from refrigerated trucks to customers’ cars, families around the country have come to depend on Zaycon to provide high-quality, affordable foods. The brand has become an internet sensation as influential bloggers (those focused on price and “foodies” alike) have consistently lauded their experiences both with the Zaycon delivery model and with the quality of the food itself. This groundswell of support has resulted in explosive growth and rising revenue; Zaycon expects to see revenues near $18 million in 2014, a near doubling of returns in less than two years.
“As we continue to pursue our strategic plan for company expansion, we have identified Zaycon Foods as a company not only providing great products, but one that has significant potential for growth in terms of distribution and revenue,” said Unique Growing Solutions, Inc. CEO Richard Johnson. “We are thrilled to announce the LOI with this dynamic company, which has experienced explosive growth in only five years since its formation. This announcement aligns with our Food Division strategy of acquiring stable companies who we can support in local markets from a distribution and expansion standpoint.”
