Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this high end quality dry cleaners which was originally founded by our client around 8 years ago and is ideally located in virtually an unopposed trading position.
The business mainly specialises in dry cleaning, with around 5% service washing. The business reports a generous turnover of £70,000 per annum. Our client is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen & Guild of Cleaners and Launderers. Our client has an exceptional reputation for the quality of service, in particular, the cleaning of garments with high end designer labels, silk garments, wedding gowns and difficult stain removal, resulting in an established and loyal client base.
The business also offers shoe repairs and a suede and leather cleaning service as well as garment repairs and alterations. Our client currently works alongside two agents who take in dry cleaning which our client collects and delivers. Further agents could be added to increase turnover, as would promoting a competitive shirt service.
We are advised that many new housing developments are nearing completion in the area, potentially providing many new clients.
Our client currently runs the business at a pace to suit due to his pending retirement. Therefore, we believe there is plenty of scope for development for a new owner to exploit by offering additional services such as ironing with a collect and delivery service.
In addition, our client owns a carpet and upholstery cleaning machine which could be marketed as an extra service. We believe the new owner would certainly benefit from introducing a website promoting the current services offered and additional services if undertaken.
Early viewing of this exceptional dry cleaners is highly recommended, with our client offering tuition and support to any new owner to assist with the smooth transition of ownership if required.
