Business Description
Hilton Smythe are highly privileged to present to the market one of London’s most well established and more importantly well regarded Dry Cleaning Businesses. Established by our client over 40 years, the successful business is now being sold due to his wish to retire.

Many Dry Cleaning businesses would dream to have the client list and customer footfall type these 2 shops enjoy and all the services they offer are never on price ... but on the quality! As an agent, we identify the business is currently being run to suit our client and with the right approach to advertising the current turnover could quite easily be taken to the £1M mark.

Both shops offer excellent dry cleaning of both ladies and gents clothing including very expensive dresses and suits which are carefully cleaned using the very best dry cleaning products. Many customers can't believe the new appearance of their garments when returned which over the years has ensured loyalty and praise.

Number one - offers all dry cleaning services, alterations to all types of garments, shirt laundry/pressing (approx 300-400 shirts per week), key cutting and shoe repairs. Turnover is split between walk in collections and the delivery service offered.
Number two - again offers full high quality dry cleaning services, alterations and shirt laundry/ ironing (up to 700 shirts per week here). Both collection and delivery services offered.

Our client has over 100 account customers and a prestigious VIP client on the books.

We believe there are many areas any new buyer may look to add to, to continue the success of this tremendous business, these include -

  • A new website with online ordering facility

  • Social media presence

  • New advertising campaign

  • Approaching the many hotels in the area for guest cleaning services

  • Adding both key cutting and show repairs to the Number two store

Due to the enviable locations and lease agreements on both stores, we recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment. Our client will offer a full business handover period to any new buyer.
