Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Monarch Laundry Ltd. The business was originally established in the 1960’s and has been a great success in this location. Our client first took over the business in 2004, but is now looking to sell the business due to retirement and health reasons.
The business provides an exceptional laundry service to the commercial sector. Services include collection and delivery throughout Hampshire, Dorset & Wiltshire, plus a 24 hour turn around service available when required.
They have had repeat trade with many large companies and businesses, such as hotels, ships, schools,
Colleges and sports centres. This is a great plus for the business, and allows the laundry service to generate a healthy £305,000 turnover per annum, with a gross profit of 43%.
Our client has run this business successfully, however, we feel the new owner could increase turnover further, by advertising and marketing. Free social media is a great way of attracting custom. The business does have a website www.monarchlaundry.co.uk explaining what the laundry offers.
The purchaser could also look to expand the business by adding another property. The owner could then focus on the private sector such as B&B’s and residential. The business has a great reputation in this location due to the long establishment.
The business is virtually self- sustaining and we feel with the right buyer this business could achieve more. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to any experienced purchaser.
