Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market a much-loved children's party events supply company established by our client 6 years ago.

The delightful, run from home business model was the brainchild of our client who originally thought of the idea while attending a wedding and realising there was little to keep kids entertained or comfortable.

‘What about the kids’ was created after being faced with the question …. what to do with the kids when invited to events?

Our client quickly embarked on supplying specially sized chairs/tables, tableware, bows & balloons, party bags & boxes for birthdays, christenings and weddings.

As the demand increased, our client identified the potential to expand to new areas by partnering with existing party/fancy dress shops. She quickly added 3 x new branches in Hitchin, Reading and Maidstone with each shop receiving a stock of the chairs/table which they then take full responsibility for the delivery and collection for each event.

Our client manages all bookings centrally, she can cater for standard birthday parties for between 15-20 children upto larger celebrity parties for 60 children.

One of the unique selling points of What about the kids is that they solely focus on catering for children only, many larger events companies will manage the complete process of organising a party, wedding or celebration but will work at a much higher complete cost.

Our client admits she now runs the business to suit working on average just 5-7 hours per week.

Very rarely do run from home businesses of this type come on to the market and we therefore recommend early enquiry to avoid disappointment.

Majority of the children’s parties supplied are within these areas.

Any new owner would benefit from being located within these two areas or closer to West London where the demand is high.

A garage for storage will be required.


Business Only.
