Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy launderette business, which is ideally located in the town of Lydney, Gloucestershire.

The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £67,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 90%. Our client offers a variety of laundry services including washing, drying and ironing services, as well as a collection and delivery service for sports clubs, hotels, guest houses etc. The business operates large washing machines and offers duvet cleaning and drying.

The property benefits from a two bedroom flat to the first floor, which is currently rented out, generating further income of £410 per calendar month.

There is also scope to introduce dry cleaning services, new equipment for this service will need to be installed. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further, as well as introducing a website to advertise the business.
