The business is located on a busy Industrial Estate which is just off the A19 Trunk Road and less than 1 mile away from Cobalt Business Park. Cobalt is a modern and expanding business area which is home to over 14,000 workers and the unit has external car parking for up to 20 cars.
This business opportunity comprises an established Doggy Day Care Centre which was opened by our client in 2017 but has now been placed on the market as the current owner is relocating to the south of the region.
The business has a loyal customer base and trades well with good levels of repeat business. The premises are extensively fitted and equipped for the trade and offer an open plan indoor space with a variety of play areas. The play areas include “playful” and “peaceful” pens and there is also a large external space which can be accessed through the roller shutter doors and makes one large interconnecting space when opened up. Internally there is a pleasant reception with retail space for accessories and some food products plus a kitchen area and first aid room.
The business currently trades on weekdays only and is operated on a relatively low key basis with scope to develop all elements. The unit is licensed for up to 30 dogs and current tariffs are £20 per day or £15 per half day. Additional services could include dog grooming which would be a natural add on and new business generator, and there is evidence of a demand for “puppy parties” at weekends. There is also scope to broaden the range of dog foods and accessories stocked in the reception area. The mezzanine area overlooking the main pen has stair access and could be transformed into a café or coffee shop area for customers.
This is a rare to the market “turn-key” opportunity where all the initial investment in the premises and business model has been done. This is a well-regarded trading business ready and primed for enthusiastic new owners to drive forward.
