Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this established and well respected Tourist Road Train business which is located in Newquay, Cornwall. The business was established 22 years ago by the current owner and has been in his careful hands ever since. Reluctantly the business is now being offered for sale so that he can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership my client has made continual investment in maintaining the carriages and train which has recently had a new engine fitted. The Road Train is fully serviced and included within the sale price along with all spare parts which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and employs the help of one full time member of staff and has an annual turnover of 65,436 trading from Easter - October. Newquay Road Train is the only licenced tourist train allowed to operate within the town and has a capacity to carry 55 passengers which allows you to visit all sides of Newquay from the stunning beaches on one side to the Zoo and parks on the other. A full training and handover period will be given to any prospective purchaser. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by extending upon the current opening hours during the summer months and introducing a much more vigorous advertising and marketing campaign along with addition of a more comprehensive website. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade from returning tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established and niche business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed
