Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire on a leasehold only basis, an exceptionally well run and performing, “turnkey” dog grooming business with an excellent local reputation.
Hair and Hounds Dog Grooming has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for the last 5 years, and who has grown the business to where it finds itself today. It is only now on the open market for sale as our client wishes to leave the industry to enjoy a more relaxed pace of life.
The business offers a range of services from professional grooming, nail clipping, ear cleaning, flea baths and more. All services carried out with professionalism by the staff within the well-presented grooming parlour. In addition to the grooming side of the business, it offers a wide range of pet supplies and accessories as well, this is something that could be expanded by the new owner.
We feel there is scope to increase turnover with the promotion and update of the business website, increased trading hours, in addition to a robust localised marketing campaign, along with introducing some further product lines to sell via the shop as well as online.
The business trades on its reputation and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
A tremendous opportunity to own this turnkey business, and early enquiries are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
