Then look no further!.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very successful and very lucrative computer shop (with accommodation) on the Costa Blanca located very close to Benidorm, (only 1 mile) that has a niche market selling and servicing English computers, hardware & software and UK satellite TV systems to English-speaking ex-pats of all nationalities. The business has been established for 13 years and has a large English speaking clientele of nationalities which number in excess of 3,000. You do not need to speak Spanish to run this business as 99% of customers speak English!.
Approximately 75% of the business’s main income is from Computer Repairs and Network Installations. The profit margin from this sector of the business is very high - in excess of 70%.
There is also a very substantial income, approximately 15%, derived from sales of English Satellite Television Systems. This part of the business has an ongoing, increasing annual residual income from subscribers. The installation of satellite dishes is currently farmed out to another company, but it could be brought back “in-house”.
The rest of business's income is derived from computer hardware equipment sales and sales of accessories (comprising of laptops computers, desktop computers, tablets, printers, monitors, hard disks, keyboards, mice etc.) Sales of accessories comprises of cables & connectors, memory cards, USB sticks, computer memory etc., printer inks & paper, as well as a small amount derived from printing, photocopying, laminating, faxing & internet access. The latter items also have an extremely high profit margin.
A small amount of income is derived from mobile phone top ups and sales of mobile phone SIM cards.
The business can be run by one person who has some knowledge of computers and upgrading hardware. A knowledge of routers and networking would be useful but is not essential as training can be given.
The business is located in the town of La Nucia. It is a popular and affluent town with a large resident expatriate population. In the holiday seasons, there is also a very high number of holiday makers too. The business is located in a well known, popular parade on a main road with easy access and there is plenty of parking directly outside. The business benefits from plenty of external signage which is illuminated at night. There is a large illuminated signboard overhanging the pavement too. This makes the business stand out from the crowd at all times of the day and night and is clearly visible to the large volume of passing traffic.
There is plenty of scope to increase business (and turnover) by expanding the range of services offered. For example adding mobile phone repairs & unlocking, Apple product sales and support, sales and support of computer game consoles etc. At present, the business is successful enough without these and simply turns this type of business away. Satellite dish installation and adjustment is also presently farmed out. This could be brought back in house.
Having been established for 13 years, and with all this signage, the business does not need to advertise at all. A lot more business could be generated if adverts were placed with the local media too.
The business occupies a large double fronted shop premises spread over 2 floors and is located in a plaza of 8 shops (locales) on the main highway between Benidorm and La Nucia, on the Costa Blanca. It is fully air conditioned and has heating on both floors.
There is an outside terrace comprising of some 35m² which could be used as a coffee shop area to complement the Internet Café part of the business.
There is also a very large basement comprising of approximately 105m² which could possibly be sublet to another business. This area has now been converted to a fully self contained large 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment comprises of a kitchen area, with sink, fridge, electric oven, ceramic hob, extractor fan, fridge/freezer and plenty of kitchen cupboards. There is space for a dishwasher and/or for a washing machine. There is also a WC together area with a shower unit and a hand wash basin, an electric water heater. The basement apartment has opening windows (as it is not not fully underground) and plenty of natural light. There is also a skylight which lights up the basement through the shop.
The whole premises is completely secured with state-of-the-art Alarm System connected to a central monitoring station together with security grilles. There is also a CCTV video system which can be accessed remotely across the internet.
The building has been completely refurbished and rewired and decorated to a high standard in recent years. New floor tiles have been laid too.
Hardly any. There is one other computer shop (Spanish owned and run) about a 1 mile away which poses no threat as the management do not speak English. The nearest English Computer Shop is about 15 miles away.
Currently run by owner plus 1 part-time engineer on an ad-hoc basis.
