Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Freehold Launderette concern located in Penzance. The business has been established since 1968 and has been in the careful hand of my clients for the last 7 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale but they feel that it's time to move on. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price 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 requires the help of just 1 part time member of staff and has an annual turnover of 65,407 with an exception GP of 92.5% and an adjusted net profit of 39,979. The business is made up of walk in customers, commercial washes and service washes in that respective order. We believe that there is further potential to increase turnover as they have never advertised or undertaken any promotional leaflet dropping and there is scope to build on the commercial work should any new purchaser want to. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established 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.
