Dog Grooming Business for Sale in Sydney Eastern Suburbs

$55,000 WIWO

Sydney’s Best Dog Grooming Parlour - 1st listing in 20 yrs For Sale

Highly profitable

Low hours – 5 days a week – open 8am & walk out 5pm

4 weeks holiday a year + closed all public holidays & extended long weekends

Everything included (Website, computers, software, grooming equipment etc)

  • Fully computerised contacts - Customer history going back 22 years

  • Pick and choose which dogs to groom, which customers to serve (yes this is true)
  • A Brand that customers trust and keep coming back to

Very few businesses offer a real opportunity to work normal hours, earn a fantastic living with true benefits as well as having holiday downtime that suits you without the fear of competitors.

Opportunities for the future to expand:

  • Social networking presence
  • Pet Sitting & walking
  • Small retail area

I’ve owned the business for over 20 years. It has been an absolute joy to own with no stress, no boss yelling sales numbers at me, no team meetings to attend, no sales forecasts. I have worked to my own rhythm choosing to work when it suits me. Each year I take 3 to 4 weeks off at Christmas (as it suits my Husband’s job to when he can get off) and we travel to Europe. Then across the year we take a week off at Easter as well as every long weekend (often extended) plus more to enjoy life. Sure I could earn more money, but I like only working 5 days a week with the hours I set myself. This has been one of those rare businesses that comes up once in 2 lifetimes.

Why am I selling? In a nutshell, time to move overseas. If it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t be selling. This would be my business until no more.

$55,000 not negotiable - Truly a “walk in, walk out” scenario - nothing is excluded, nothing for you to buy & Owner available for training on mutual terms.

  • Turnover well over $200k + GST p.y.
  • Very profitable for any owner operator
  • Current staff happy to stay
  • In present location for over 16 years
  • Comprehensive client and financial records spanning 20+ years

Once sold it will never appear again for another 20+ years.

One of those things you don’t fully appreciate what you’ve got until you’ve got it.
