Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular kennels business, which is ideally located within approximately ¾ acre in the beautiful countryside.
The business was established by our clients in 1998 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates on a basis to suit the clients and according to the accounts ending march 2015, the business generates a turnover in the region of £75,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 93%.
Our clients offer two separate kennels, one holds 16 dogs and the other holds 14 dogs. There are also three holding kennels for dog cross overs, as well as a cattery section for approximately 10 cats. The owners’ accommodation is very spacious and boasts four bedrooms, three double and one single.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area and further afield, for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover as our clients’ offer reduced dog grooming, with much having been suspended due to ill health, but all could be re-introduced. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the services offered. There is also scope to introduce a website to advertise the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
