Description About This Posting: Dog Grooming Shop - Semi-Absentee, Profitable
This is a profitable, highly-respected dog grooming and daycare service in business for six years, with loyal customers and a great reputation. They offer full-service dog grooming, 'self-service' wash facilities, daycare, teeth cleaning, and transportation. It is located in a custom-configured purpose-built shop in a convenient and accessible retail strip mall, in San Mateo County, in the affluent Silicon Valley of California, not far from San Francisco International Airport.
No prior grooming experience necessary - semi-absentee ownership. The owner does NO grooming, is at the shop only part of the day, and takes two-week-long vacations and long weekends with no effect on sales.
An owner who also does some of the grooming could make a lot more -- in fees and in tips.
The business generates seller's discretionary earnings ('SDE') approaching $100,000 per year for the owner-operator, with potential for much more by expanding hours of operation, adding to staff, and increasing marketing. There is also potential to add overnight care.
Sales exceed $400,000 per year.
There are three years left on a lease with a very favorable rate.
The Transaction: The business is offered for a total price of $119,900 (approximately 1x SDE). Price is subject to negotiation depending on speed of transaction and terms of sale.
This is for the entire business: tangible assets--equipment, fixtures, etc.; and intangible assets--website, trademark, logo, trade name, telephone number, methods of operation, vendor/supplier resources, customer lists, etc., and goodwill. It does not include cash, accounts payable, accounts receivable, or rent security deposit. Retail 'for-sale' inventory at the time of transfer (currently, approx. $4,000) is extra at actual cost. Some seller financing (up to $20,000) may be available depending on buyer credit and terms.
