Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular gentleman’s barber business, which is ideally located within the town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
The business was established by our client in 2006 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire for new business ventures. The barber chop currently operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £45,200 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 81%.
Our client offers a variety of barber services including haircuts, wash and cut and beard trims, as well as offering concessions for children and senior citizens. The property boasts 27 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the styling and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours or bringing in additional styling staff. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. Our client does promote the business on the popular social media website Facebook, although we feel the business would benefit from a dedicated website to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
