Established Hygiene & Cleaning Products Supplier
- Excellent Reputation
- Very Loyal Customer Base
- Low Overheads
Established in 2004, the business for sale is a well-established hygiene/cleaning products supplier belonging to a franchise. Currently based in Yorkshire, the company has garnered an outstanding reputation and large client base through offering ethically-friendly, effective cleaning products.
The franchise has provided market-leading hygiene products for every type of industry throughout the UK and beyond for over three decades. It specialises in infection control, entire hygiene systems for
food prep or large-scale laundry or dish wash systems.
This particular franchisee mainly supplies the education sector, including 10 Academy primary and secondary schools in York. It also supplies the hospitality sector, with 25-30 clients in this field such as pubs, restaurants, hotels, golf clubs, and independent care centres.
The potential buyer has the opportunity to belong to the franchise and would thus be able to obtain franchise training, software, etc on top of the asking price, at an approximate extra cost of £12,500. This will be paid by the buyer/new franchisee direct to Chemex International who will provide full support for the new owner.
The business is currently managed from a location in York, but ultimately operates throughout North Yorkshire including York, Harrogate, and the surrounding areas.
The asking price of £40k includes all current contracts in the postal code areas, which will give the buyer a strong and stable start to their ownership. The sale also includes all chemical dosing equipment for out in the field, all stock at the time of the sale, and any spare equipment. The buyer may purchase the business's black Peugeot boxer long wheel base van with 2018 registration, 31k on the clock, and fully serviced. This would be an additional £16k inclusive of VAT.
The business is fully relocatable, but it is recommended to stay within the present coverage area to be able to efficiently deliver the company's services to clients.
The owner is also willing to stay on for a transitional period, for a smooth handover of business operations.
The business is successful through receiving continued franchise support and for providing an excellent service and products which has resulted in an outstanding reputation. The vendor and their partner have recently had to invest fewer hours into maintaining the business due to health, and so this is a great opportunity for a buyer who can make a full-time commitment to continuing the company's fantastic success.
At present, marketing is provided by the franchise itself however, there is room to boost exposure through further advertising in order to attract more customers. Within the large geographic area it covers, there are 11,000 postal codes for the buyer to seek new client leads.
