Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular kennels business in Kilnhurst, South Yorkshire.

The business was established in the 1960s and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 100,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 87%.

Our client offers a variety of services including being a boarding kennels, which is licenced for 80 dogs, dog grooming and a rescue and re-homing centre. Our client also runs an onsite pet food shop with competitive prices. The business is also a stray dog centre for Rotherham Council. There are 67 kennels in total, each of which has its own exercise run.

The owners' accommodation is set over two floors, with a large living room, second large room, which would make an ideal dining room and a kitchen to the ground floor. the first floor offers four large bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property boasts approximately 123 sq. metres of floor space.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by introducing a cattery. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent services offered. There is also scope incorporate the dog grooming side of the business, which is currently rented out.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Netherlands Boarding Kennels occupies substantial premises, ideally located on the outskirts of Rawmarsh and Kilnhurst, South Yorkshire. The business is situated just off the very busy Kilnhurst Road and benefits from a large volume of passing trade.
