TUF's markets and global business structure includes separate companies which can function as stand-alone businesses and/or provide supportive services for each branded development, increasing overall revenue and reducing cost. This allows for the greatest opportunity for success of each individual company and its ability to bring in additional expertise and offer total vertical integration and shared services solutions.
Each business delivers its own unique brand, well-accepted active lifestyle niche, its own line of specialty products and services, and active lifestyle development to compliment and support each business sales efforts.
The proposed "Build & Fill" model is based on TUF’s belief in each individual team member and individual company’s strength and its ability to succeed as a stand alone business or in a cluster of businesses. This specialized business model allows for individual success and corporate growth, while working together creating a global economic "TEAM" branded business model with exponential financial stability.
To reach and maintain our goals and yours, TUF has been carefully balanced by its parent company operations with those of several sub-holding companies, each supporting their own identity and brands, while building and developing communities around the world. Every subsidiary has a fully developed plan, set goals and financials, allowing them to be independent, yet supportive of the other, utilizing shared systems and purchasing each other’s products and services. This collective collaboration between each subsidiary supports the overall transformation and growth of each company we serve with dependable systems, manageable risk, costs, a more predictable revenue stream and balance through one strategically united business, THE ULTIMATE FAN, INC. (TUF).
In order to reach and maintain our goals, TUF has developed a unique business model we call “Build and Fill.” With this model, as the developer and owner of the businesses, we are able to build the required spaces, then own, manage and operate the businesses within each development.
Using this shared “build and fill” philosophy gives us an advantage over traditional industry models by expanding our reach into several areas of business, while systematically transforming the growth of our people and the communities we serve.
This ability comes from a combination of innovative business development, creative brands, global joint ventures and collaborative alliance activities, plus continued improvement of our market share in each diversified sectors.
