Financial Info: Price: $490,000+ Inv. Down: Call. Adjusted Net: $220,000. Annual Revenues: $890,000. Inventory of approximately $400K (not included in asking price and must be purchased separately as part of FF&E). The space is available for lease and/or sale under a separate contract agreement.
Profile: Here is an excellent opportunity for an experienced pet groomer (owner/operator) looking for an existing client base to own and operate this turnkey and full-service company. You don't need to start from scratch and will make money from day one. The business is in the South Bay (an affluent part of Los Angeles with a robust reputation for income and growth). If you have a passion for animals and seek their well-being, then this business is for you.
The company has an online presence with an active website, Facebook, and Twitter presence with strong social media promotions, computerized systems, and proven financials. It also has a well-established, loyal, happy client database, and a long history of positive Yelp reviews. The company is very successful solely through word-of-mouth, name recognition and customer referrals.
This opportunity has an amazing potential for growth and requires a highly motivated owner to take the business to the next level. Expansion would be easy through active marketing, additional services beyond mobile grooming, and retail product lines. The business is very profitable and has been with the current ownership since 1988 with the seller's mission to always promote high quality pet care while bringing awareness about animal wellness to their owners. Professional grooming services tailor to both dogs and cats with a great potential for retail sales. If your goal is to own a very profitable, well-established, efficient pet grooming business, this is your opportunity.
