This popular business only opportunity offers domestic and commercial cleaning services within Cornwall and in South Devon via a sub-contractor.
The business has been in our client's careful ownership since 1996 and currently operates 5 days per week, generating a turnover in the region of £135,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of services including carpet and upholstery cleaning, stain treatment and protection, tiled and other hard floor cleaning, emergency flood response, building drying, gutter cleaning, pest control treatments and general contract cleaning, to name a few. The business is also approved contractors for numerous letting agents and facility management companies, with some service level agreement in place with some of the clients.
Our client has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
The business is run with one full-time and two part-time staff members and employ numerous sub-contractors. Our client works part-time and sales would increase with a full-time hand on owner.
Our client is willing to provide a handover period for the buyer, in order for them to hit the ground running with the new business acquisition, the length of this would need to be negotiated with our client.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business already has an excellent and informative website in place to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
