Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb cattery standing in large grounds with the River Soar at the end of the garden. The cattery has been established since 2003 and the only reason this unique opportunity is being put to the market is our clients desire to relocate nearer to their family.

Since our client took ownership of the business they have fully refurbished the existing cattery and had planning passed to further extend the facility. The cattery is licensed for 68 cats. Our clients inform us that the current turnover runs at £19,366pa with a gross profit of £17,946. This is derived solely from the boarding of cats but the property and its land could offer huge expansion to a forward thinking new ownership.

The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a strong repeat trade. The businesses current turnover has been achieved solely by word of mouth but our clients feel there is huge growth potential for a wide advertising campaign to the nearby Alliance & Leicester headquarters.

The property comes with planning for a new cattery plus a large building plot to the front of the property which would be available by separate negotiation and is not included in the price. Therefore we recommend early viewing to fully appreciate this unique business opportunity.
