INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND

BJ’s, a well-established wholesale club, has successfully developed and managed a diverse portfolio of private label brands in multiple categories. In 2009, BJ’s created several new product brands to address several fast growing grocery and consumables categories including natural and organic food, pet, baby and home products.

ASSETS

BJ’s successfully developed a portfolio of health conscious, lifestyle orientated and highly desirable brands that quickly and clearly communicate these key messages to the consumer.

  • Rozzano®
  • Lyndon Reede®

OPPORTUNITY

The private label brand portfolio present a turn-key opportunity to acquire a well-developed and seasoned portfolio of trademarks and domain names based on key brand identifiers which have been successfully prosecuted and registered with the USPTO. These brands have demonstrated their appeal to consumers when sold side by side against established national CPG and consumables brands.

BJ’s has obtained registered trademarks for the private label brands covering multiple classifications and product categories. Additionally, BJs has developed logos, artwork and brand guides covering over 150 SKU's in the grocery, frozen and prepared foods, baby and pet product aisles. Sales of product carrying the private label brands were over $200 million annually.
