This business represents an excellent opportunity for the purchaser to build on an own brand of premium dog accessories. The product range of Poppy and Rufus is designed to be stylish and functional in equal measure, made from bespoke fabrics and targeted at the more affluent sector.
Having started the business 5 years ago, and initially having strong success at trade shows, the owners both experienced considerable lifestyle changes and increased family commitments within a couple of years of launching, leaving insufficient time to focus on the business. It has necessarily been put on the back burner with very little, if no, active promotion or marketing in the last few years but despite the neglect, it continues to generate modest orders and remains a unique, ready-to-run operation.
The company has an ongoing relationship with a well-known online retailer and while trade shows and exhibitions also remain a route to market, the business will benefit from a purchaser able to develop a digital marketing strategy and better harness social media, in order to drive direct sales from the website.
The business is operated from home and requires minimal stock holding and therefore little storage space. It is completely relocatable and is appropriate as either a part-time 2nd income stream or to be grown into a full-time lifestyle business.
The guide price for assets and goodwill of Poppy and Rufus is £15,000 plus stock at value and the vendors will be pleased to assist with a sensible handover.
The business is being marketed by www.sellmysmallbusiness.co.uk and further information should be requested from them. Please do not attempt to contact the vendors directly.
