This very well-established business has been in the same ownership for the last 25 years and is only for sale due to retirement. The owner now works on a part-time basis with the assistance of one employee, and we understand that the business could be run solely by one full-time working owner without the need for any additional staff.
Normally trading 5 days a week, the business entails the packaging and delivery of a range of pet products for convenience stores. The products include dog biscuits & chews, bird foods, fish food and animal bedding. Many of the clients are longstanding customers but there is still plenty of scope for further development of the business especially with increased marketing and promotion.
Trading accounts for the year ended 31st January 2016 show Annual Sales of £111,630 and a Gross Profit of £73,036. For a full-time working owner of the business, there is the potential to earn a Net Profit in excess of £50,000 per annum. The sale includes all necessary business equipment including a 2010 Ford Transit LPG van, a Linde H15 forklift truck, automatic packaging machinery, 2 heat sealers and a labelling machine.
This would be an ideal “ready-made” business for someone seeking a straightforward and lucrative opportunity in the South East of England. No prior experience of the trade is necessary, and the vendor is willing to offer training and assistance to the new owner during a handover period which will ensure a smooth transition following the sale of the business.
Currently based in leased warehouse premises near Burgess Hill in West Sussex, there is no obligation to take over the existing lease and the business could easily be relocated to any suitable location in the South East of England.
