Full description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this busy laundry and ironing service business, which is ideally located within the village of Bramley, near Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

The business was originally established over 20 years ago and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s own personal reasons. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £52,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 81%.

Our client offers a wide variety of services including a full laundry service, washing, drying, ironing, dry cleaning, carpet cleaning, curtain cleaning and alterations, to name a few. Customers can call into the shop and drop off laundry and either pick it up or our client delivers, within a 7-mile radius, free of charge. The property boasts approximately 59 sq. metres of floor space and is fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up an excellent 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 extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
