Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire on a leasehold only basis, an exceptionally well run and performing, “turn-key” dog grooming business with an excellent local reputation.

Clippers & Combs Dog Grooming has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our clients for the last 30 years and has operated from the current premises for the last 20 years. The business has been a real labour of love for the owners and the business has acquired an impressive number of happy customers who use the services regularly.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to the owners health circumstances, they are keen to see their beloved dog grooming salon pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The business offers a range of services from professional grooming, nail clipping, ear cleaning, flea baths and more. All services carried out with professionalism by the staff within the well-presented grooming parlour.

The business trades on its reputation and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.

  • Advertising and marketing campaign
  • Update the existing website, perhaps adding an online booking facility

Reasons to Buy -

A tremendous opportunity to own this turnkey business, and early enquiries are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

We are advised as per the 2019 accounts, the business generated a turnover in the region of £52,000, with an adjusted net profit in the region of £20,000. Full financials can be made available upon further request.
