The reputable and profitable ‘Kirkby Kennels & Cattery’ is now up for sale.
This wonderful, small business is situated in the idyllic, rural location of Kirkby in Ashfield, within the locality of Portland Park. The site boasts 36 Kennels and eight Cattery pens – benefiting from their own indoor and outdoor covered areas – which are cool in the summer and have under floor heating in the winter. The fully enclosed, astro- turfed exercise area means that dogs can be exercised twice daily (minimum). As well as dogs and cats, there is also a separate area for taking care of small animals. The company also offers grooming and collection/ pick up services, making it a highly attractive, “all around” service for its customers.
Not only will the buyer be taking on an established and trusted Kennel & Cattery business, they will also gain a versatile bungalow home as part of the price. The beautiful bungalow consists of 4/5 bedrooms, large kitchen diner, separate utility room, two reception rooms, conservatory, one bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe area and large bathroom downstairs and a separate office/bedroom space. All recently decorated. The double garage and two further outbuildings means the home is very versatile, with lots of space. Furthermore, with the bungalow being situated on site, the buyer can enjoy the easiest and shortest of commutes!
The location has the best of both worlds – it’s situated in a rural and tranquil area, with an acre of land comprising of both business and personal gardens – yet it is close to the local shops and amenities e.g Morrisons, Aldis, chemists, doctors, dentists, post office etc. Moreover, the premises are fully alarmed to ensure safety and security.
This family run Kennel and Cattery has been established for an impressive 50 years and prides itself on the bespoke and intimate service it offers to its loyal customers. Their homely service offers a wide selection of food during the animal’s stay, fresh, clean water all day and will administer any medication necessary. Trust and customer satisfaction is key, so the Kennel and Cattery also sends pictures and offers customers face-times with their furry friends, to give them peace of mind that their pet is happy and well cared for. Due to this, the business is thriving and in the Summer months they currently have to turn customers away, as they are in such high demand.
Therefore, there is great potential to expand. There is plenty of land available, with space for a further 30 kennels, to accommodate the high demand in the Summer. There is also the potential to expand the services e.g offer more of a grooming facility. With the right sales and marketing drives, there is also the opportunity to expand its pre-existing customer base.
The current owners are happy to provide support and training to the prospective buyer.
This Kennel and Cattery is perfect for someone looking to run a business in the pet services industry, but without those initial startup pains. Situated in the picturesque countryside, the buyer will be taking on a highly established business, with a glowing reputation, loyal customers and great potential for expansion. This profitable business is a great investment for any animal lover!
