Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and popular rage room, escape room and arts centre business.
Smash Space has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for a short period of time, building up a great reputation, a true testament to the hard work and dedication from the current owner, resulting in the high calibre of business on offer. The business is now being offered for sale due to our client pursuing other career options, and who would like to see the business pass to someone with the same drive and enthusiasm to take the business to the next level.
The business is a multi-site facility that offers Rage Rooms, Escape Rooms, and an Art Launch facility in Newcastle Upon Tyne. They specialise in offering activities for everyone, they have family friendly activities, and they can let adults have fun in our Rage Rooms. The business benefits from a strong online presence as well and have grown their social media outreach to over 100,000 and welcomed over 2000 customers on-site in the first 6 months. The business currently runs: two Rage Rooms, a Smash Alley, two Escape Rooms, and an Art Launch.
We feel there is scope to increase turnover with the undertaking of a robust marketing campaign via local press, social media, and further promotion of the dedicated website, along with the introduction of some further activities.
This is a highly desirable business with an excellent business model in place and would be a very attractive proposition for either an individual or partnership looking for their first business in this sector which is already established, or for an experienced operator looking for an additional business.
