Offered for sale is this successful and highly recommended business, currently based in Surrey near the M25. The business serves a customer base covering London to the South East and South West of England.
The business offers organised chocolate making parties for adults and children including events such as hen parties, corporate events and children's parties and celebrations. Currently run to suit the owner (e.g. not during school holidays) with casual staff as required, the business is profitable and offers excellent scope for expansion. These opportunities would include greater targetting of the corporate and business market, operating throughout the year, and a more focussed approach to the children's party market.
Additionally, there is possibly, in future, the potential to franchise the business to increase area coverage and take the business up to another commercial level entirely.
Of course, if the buyer simply wants a part-time, fun, lifestyle business then this fits perfectly.
The sale will include handover, future bookings, equipment, an excellent website and social media accounts (if required).
Currently the business is managed from the owner's home with parties and events taking place at customer’s homes or client venues or the business owners own home. It can be relocated to another home or small business premises.
This business presents several opportunities.
1. to run as it is and provide an interesting, fun part-time business.
2. to grow and expand via more active marketing and increasing the working weeks into school holidays or
3. to grow beyond the current area by opening new branches, franchising or licensing.
Having established and grown the business the seller now wishes to pass on the business so she can take some time out to spend with her growing family. She will, of course, enter into a non-compete contract with the buyer.
These vary according to demand and the owner's priorities around family and children.
The business requires people skills and organisation more than anything else. However the seller is very willing to see the business succeed and will offer a well-managed handover.
