Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and busy tuition and childcare business, ideally located within the West Midlands.
The business was established by our client in 2010 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £255,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 61%.
Our client offers a variety of services including:
• After school and weekend tuition for children aged 2-18.

The new nursery is proving to be very popular and OFSTED have registered the nursery and children have already been enrolled.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the 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 embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent services offered. The business already has an excellent website in place to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level, or it could be a bolt-on to an already existing business within the area, therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
