This growing concern franchise sale comes ready to 'drive away' in the heart of the Cheshire County covering Crewe, Nantwich and surrounding areas. This is a perfect opportunity to buy into a very successful family and yet work for yourself, you choose your hours to suit and have the opportunity to earn in the region of 40-50K pa, this franchise is successfully established in the area.
Complete in the sale is a professionally fitted, converted citroen relay long-wheel base van with everything you need to wash, groom and clip all breeds of dog. This conversion alone would cost £10,000. Equipment includes a hydro bath/ shower unit with heating element, turbo dryer, grooming table and water reservoir.
There is a client database with over 450 customers and a full diary of appointments to the end of June 2011, (we are, and will, continue to take business and as such whoever buys it will be able to continue as 'normal'), with the minimal of disruption to the customer. We currently run the van 9-5, 6 days a week.
Also included is a full website which is self managed and links directly to and from the main business website. Full dog grooming training, uniform and ongoing support is available from the Head Office.
This franchise area is the beautiful County of Cheshire, and is based on postcodes (the majority of CW and a WA postcode). You can live within or outside of this area but run the van within your allocated postcodes.
10years for the brand, operational in this area for over a year
This current franchise runs 6 days a week, from 9-5.
Reasons for selling:
Very genuine reason for selling, we love the business and had great plans for its future but quite simply we do not have the time to put more work into it, we have a young family and due to a change in personal circumstances we now need to sell up.
Competition / Market:
Whilst there are other mobile dog groomers, we find that the Dog Wash business is different to some other competitors, customers like the fact that we come to them at their home or place of work, and everything is done outside in the vehicle, we are fully self sufficient and only need access to a power socket.
Many existing franchises within the family run multiple vans within their area and there is definitely the ability to do this within our area. All you would need is the extra time, member of staff(s) and of course another converted van (these are available through Head Office, who provide support and assistance if this is something you wish to explore in the future.
This business can be run from home.
