Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular child’s play centre, which is ideally located within a town in Greater Manchester.

The business was originally established in 2006 and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for an early retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £134,200 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 87%.

Our clients offer a variety of children’s play facilities including a toddler zone and ball play area for under 2 years old, with various soft shapes and rockers, a wedge slide and foam steps, plus much more, as well as an under 5 zone with play equipment, a slide and a ‘let’s pretend area’.

For the older children there is a state of the art play structure, which consists of a three lane waterfall astra slide, spiral tube, a rainbow lollipop spinner, 2 x ballpools, 7 x monkey swings, 3 x cargo nets with stepstones, ariel glide with bouy swing and rope bridge, plus much more. Our clients also offer a large party room, which is open 7 days per week and can accommodate up to 30 children, dependant on age.

The 50 cover café offers a wide variety of fayre including toasties, sandwiches, Panini’s, jacket potatoes with various fillings, salads, cooked meals, breakfasts and snacks, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. The café boasts a 5-star food hygiene rating.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield for the high quality of play services and parties 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, especially in the summer months. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business already has a very informative website in place.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

This child’s play centre occupies substantial premises, ideally located within the centre of a town in Greater Manchester. The business is situated on a small retail park and is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from excellent car parking facilities to the front of the property.

The area of the business boasts excellent public transport links, with the town’s main bus station being located just a minutes’ walk away, with bus links to the many surrounding towns and cities. The nearest railway station is less than half a mile away. The area also offers excellent road links with an A-road being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks.
