Opening in November 2016 the business has grown rapidly due to the excellent location, extremely strong business branding, quality of service, product offering and its unique style. This business has been developed from scratch by a company with a proven track record of successful retail business development advancing it at a rate that would take others many years to replicate.
This is an excellent opportunity to walk into a ready to go thriving business that is making money with a huge potential to make even more. The vast majority of hard work to get the business off the ground had been done which is shown on the fast paced increasing turnover.

Currently operating with 1 full time and 3 part time members of staff. An owner operator would benefit from absorbing one of these wages, increasing profit margins.
The dog grooming spa has over 700 clients on the books with numbers increasing daily. There is immediate possibility to scale up the grooming side to have 2 - 3 full time groomers and an assistant groomer which would increase the turnover dramatically, potentially by 150k plus. Further potential is to have grooming 7 days a week. Grooming currently operates 5 - 6 days within very easy hours. There is high demand for for 7 days a week grooming and also lots of potential to extend the hours to include earlier opening for example 8:00 am and later evening hours for example 9pm. Expansion of the grooming to its maximum potential (7 days a week with 2 groomers and) can pull in 175k plus. The shop floor sales go hand in hand with the grooming and a full grooming schedule would increase shop floor sales by approximately 50k.
The site the business is on (Pot House Hamlet) is expanding every year and currently a 12000 sq ft retail/commercial development is in the pipeline which will generate even more footfall on the site and with it revenue for the business. Furthermore the site is likely in 2019 to have a series of enclosed secure dog parks/fields/agility fields within a stones throw. This secure dog park / dog play facility has been in massive demand in the area for some time. The dog park is forecasted to facilitate well over 2000 bookings per year and considering this facility will be next door to this business for sale it will provide a mass of extra customers spending in store.
The business has a Facebook page with 4200 followers and also an Instagram account with 1000, both growing rapidly.
The sale would include Social Media accounts, website and growing mail list.
The sale would include 2 week transition period with the current owner if required to train for a smooth hand over.
The stock value is approximately £16000-£17000 which consists of tried and tested selling products, meaning no dead or waste stock.
Fixtures and fitting to be confirmed but approximately £14000
