Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market on a leasehold basis an opportunity to purchase this well-established & well run dry cleaning business.
The business has been trading since 1948 and has been under the meticulous ownership of our client for some 22 years and has built up an excellent reputation for the services that it has to offer and has only now been placed on the market for sale as its our clients desire to take well-earned retirement after many successful years of trading.
MacDonald’s Dry Cleaning has been providing a professional, high quality dry cleaning service for many years.
The business has adapted & grown over the years and along with the main business activity also offers;
• Key cutting service
• Fancy dress costumes
• Party items
• T shirt design & printing service
• Gift cards for all occasions
• Novelty balloons
• Photo copying service
This has resulted in a fantastic and loyal customer base.
We feel that there is tremendous scope to increase turnover and take the business to the next level by;
• Undertaking in a robust marketing campaign to generate new contracts of a commercial nature
• Possible expansion of the workforce to help accommodate new and ongoing contracts
• Revised operating hours.
The introduction of a dedicated website would increase online presence and could also be developed to offer an online shop for core products.
The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities.
It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
A tremendous opportunity to own this turn key business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
