Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market on a leasehold basis a very well established laundry business.
The popular business has been under our clients’ careful and meticulous ownership since 2013, Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement.
Our client offers a range of laundry and dry-cleaning services for hotels, restaurants, pubs and clubs, holiday camps, cottages, country houses, sports clubs, tea rooms, shops, schools, and private individuals. Our client also provides a delivery and collection service all along the coast including Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington, to name a few, as well as inland to York, Malton, Helmsley and Pickering.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering weekend opening hours with a new owner embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. The business already has an informative website in place to promote the business that could be further promoted along with the use of social media platforms to help increase the turnover for the business.
Very rarely do such well-established, popular businesses come to the open market on a leasehold basis, therefore early viewings must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
