Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Hillside Dry Cleaners, a very established dry-cleaning business. The ‘Turn-key’ business opportunity has been in the careful ownership of our client for over 13 years, who is now selling the business to spend more time with her young family.
The successful business offers a full dry-cleaning service with ironing/laundry (we are advised the business is split 50/50 between the two areas).
Currently the business concentrates on the domestic market, with 90% of the sales being derived from this part and 10% from commercial work. Our client advised that she turns down hotel work requests due to current workload/homelife.
All the equipment included with the sale is owned by the business and includes a new dry-cleaning machine (purchased as a back up to the first).
All of the custom is taken from existing customers and recommendations, there is no website or Facebook page in place which any new owner would benefit from adding.
We are advised, the nearest dry-cleaning business has recently closed due to retirement which will significantly increase the demand for Hillside Dry Cleaners.
Our client admits the business is run to suit and that any new owner would benefit from adding any of the following areas to significantly increase the current sales –
Pick-up & delivery service
Extending current trading hours
Advertising service to local hotels/restaurants/nearby golf club
Increase the awareness through social media/delivering local leaflet’s
Increase the number of staff.
