This business has been operating in the same location for over 7 years and has a great reputation with a large, loyal clientele.
The shop is in a fantastic location where parking for customers is easy because the street is not too busy although our over 500 customers know where we are.
The rent is very cheap and there is security with a long ongoing lease available.
The business is operating with 2 full time groomers but can easily accomodate 3, and has done so for periods of time in the past. The current owner is reaching retirement age from full time grooming, but is happy to stay on to train the new owner in the skills of dog grooming if required and ensure a smooth transition to the new ownership so that the large customer base are happy with the new ownership and remain loyal customers.
The business has sales of $3,825-$4,500 per week currently depending on the season. There is plenty of room for expanding into other services and improving retail sales in dog accessories as we carry an exclusive range of dog collars that could be marketed online for the retail entrepeneur.
There is another 4 years lease available and options for a further 5 years can be taken.
$19,404 (AUD) per annum
The salon is located in the lovely McKinnon village which is a 'destination' street not a super busy general shopping area.
This means that parking is easy for our customers but although not a busy shopping street it is a high profile thoroughfare for the surrounding community.
Dishlickers salon is an 'open view' salon. This means passers by can watch the grooming of dogs and see how they are treated. There is a small shop attached to the salon selling our own brand of dog accessories manufactured locally, stylish and fun but not expensive. There is also a rear workshop where the bathing and drying takes place. Also a laundry area and carport .
An avid social media expert could promote the retail goods and develop an online business to improve turnover for the retail shop. There is the potential to develop an add on 'dog walking' service as the workshop area is large enough to house a few dogs during pick up and drop off. Space could also be rented to a pet masseur or doggie dental complimentary business.
The owner has worked in the area for a further 2 years prior to opening the salon. With that and the highly visible location we have never had to advertise our business. There are enough dogs in the community along with the recommendations and reputation we have developed to keep us busy. If there was another groomer available we would easily be able to advertise and develop the business further.
The owner is at the point of retiring from grooming due to physical issues.
Monday to Friday 8.30 - 5.00
Saturday (fortnightly) 9.00 - 4.00
If the prospective buyer is an animal lover but not trained as yet in dog grooming, the owner is happy to stay for a period of 3 - 6 months as required to undertake training for the purchaser and to ensure the smooth transition of ownership so as not to disrupt business at all.
