Year Business was Established: 1987
   
Number of Employees: 13FT  
   
Facilities / Terms of Lease: The business operates from a rented office unit, however it could be easily re-located.  
   
Potential Growth/Expansion: The business has enjoyed steady growth and profitability over the years without really having a dedicated sales and marketing strategy. A more proactive approach to sales would certainly increase revenues as the business is scalable. It currently has some 112 active customers within its designated post codes but there are many more potential domestic clients out there. There is great potential in the Woking Territory, the vendor has not yet tapped into this area and there are a vast amount of young professional commuters in Woking. The vendor had intended to tap into this area and feels it has massive potential for the new buyer. Through choice, the vendor has only really operated within traditional office hours. There is scope to expand the hours of operation, which could certainly increase revenues. The demand is there should a new owner decide to follow that route. The business is well positioned within one of the most affluent parts of the world and there is huge scope for successful expansion.  
   
Competition: The business currently undertakes a limited level of marketing and carries out leaflet drops, community led promotions (e.g. local raffle prizes etc.) and occasionally local magazines. The business also has its own tailored website as well as the Head franchisor’s own generic website. There are excellent opportunities to increase this and to develop a more interactive internet presence so as to enable online sales and enquiries as well as to market the business more aggressively. A high proportion of the business revenue has been due to its excellent reputation for quality and service and strong word of mouth recommendation and referral business.  
   
Owner willing to train: The current owner will provide all necessary training and handover to allow continuity of trading and a seamless transition of ownership. This should be a relatively simple process as the business has excellent back office systems in place. The new owner  
   
Reason for selling: Vendor is looking to retire for family reasons.
