Thriving Tanning Studio in Affluent Area
Sale, Greater Manchester
Ref: 12542 D
Hilton Smythe would like to introduce to the market Cool Tan Ltd. This popular tanning studio was originally founded by our client in 2013 and is very well known in the area, benefiting from a high amount of repeat trade, currently having over 3500 unique clients registered, increasing month on month by approximately 70. The studio is very well presented with vibrant décor and neon lighting and offers state of art lie down and stand up beds. With professional guidance from staff on safe tanning and tanning products available to purchase. The business reports a healthy turnover of £75,500 plus according to 2016 accounts. The business also benefits from an income of £40 per week from a rented nail station/ area. In addition there is a private, lockable beauty room currently set up for spray tanning/ beauty treatments, but can be utilised for several purposes, which opens up the potential to generate additional income if let for further beauty treatments. There is a further private room currently housing a Flabelos Personal Vibration Plate with personal remote TV . The owner currently has various displays selling ladies clothing and ancillaries, this independent business has a profit of around £6,000pa. The owner is comfortable to either indicate the clothing suppliers to carry on this business or this area could be rented yielding around £2600pa. Either of these sums are not shown within Cool Tan's accounts. We believe the business has huge potential to increase turnover due to recent price increases of 20% across the business and we are advised there will be no business rates in 2017, a saving of £5500. There are no bed rental costs as they are owned outright by the business. The current 15/16 accounts indicate a sum of £8,500 in bed rental/ loans that due to the recent purchase of the beds would not be a cost in the current year. Further savings / increased profits will be indicated by the owner to any prospective purchaser at the time of negotiations. We highly recommend early viewing of this turn key business with potential for future growth, with our client willing to offer a two month period of background support to the new owner if required.
