Successful Cat Sitting Business In South East London For Sale

£50K - £100K
Turnover:
£100K - £200K
Net Profit:
Available on request

Two 'sister' Cat Sitting businesses for sale. Can be considered as one enterprise or sold individually.

We cover the Lewisham and Greenwich areas of South East London. The original business was established in 1986 and divided geographically in 2008.

We offer predominantly once daily (twice if there is a medical need) 30 minute visits to cats in their own home whilst owners are away on holiday or business. We are well established in our local communities and have a loyal, and growing, client basis with a significant proportion of repeat business.

The majority of new business comes via existing client, local vet and positive local community website recommendation. Advertising is currently minimal and neither business has a social media presence. This offers real and quickly accessed opportunities for expansion.

The sale is genuine and motivated by the current owners plan to retire out of London. However, we are happy to stay on and facilitate any period of transition if this is helpful.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Advertising is currently minimal and neither business has a social media presence. This offers immediate opportunities for expansion.

Competition / Market:

There are a few local Pet Sitters and a couple of London/countrywide franchises that operate in the area. However, our business is based around cat care (we will look after other small animals such as rabbits, gerbils and fish if in the same household but we do not look after dogs). This offers a different level of 'expertise' and many cat owners appreciate the exclusivity.
Equally, we are more established than any other service that we are aware of in the area. We are a small team with a reputation for reliability and high standards of care. We can offer a level of consistency of care (and carers) that the larger franchise businesses are not able to do. Our clients, and their cats, build strong and positive relationships with us. This accounts for the high level of repeat business.
It is an open market and new competitors may emerge but we are confident that, as long as the high standards and principles of the current business model are maintained there is no reason why they will not continue to thrive.

Reasons for selling:

Retirement out of London

Trading hours:

We offer a 7 day a week service, closing for an annual holiday for two weeks per year.

We have a small number of helpers who work for us on a regular 'ad hoc' basis
Years established:
