Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Laundry Services. Established in 2002 the business has been successfully run by our client since 2011 and only now does the business come to the market as our client looks towards a well-deserved retirement.

Laundry Services sees much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business reports an annual turnover of £39,400 with a gross profit of 82%.

Revenue is generated from a professional washing, drying and ironing service. The business has an excellent reputation for its friendly service and value for money, providing for domestic clients with additional regular business from hotels and bed and breakfasts in the City. The business also offer a popular collection and delivery service.

We believe the business has huge potential for growth as Laundry Services is currently run at a pace to suit our client. The business would also benefit from opening at weekends and extending opening hours into the evening. We also feel there is huge potential to expand the commercial side of the business with a modest marketing campaign targeting the abundance of tourist accommodation in the area as well as more guest houses and local hotels.

The shop is a very good size and can be reconfigured to easily allow for more equipment to meet this extra demand if required.

Early viewing of this sound business investment with massive potential for growth is highly recommended.
