Business Description
THE OPPORTUNITY

ETS Corporate are pleased to place on the market this unique, re-locatable chimney sweep and stove installation business based in Cornwall. It was established in 2011 and through quality of service and huge social media presence, has become one of the most recognised businesses within the industry. It is still growing and has immense potential. The accumulated annual turnover is around £150,000 with a net profit of £32,000.

LOCATION
