Great opportunity to own an established doggy daycare, boarding, and grooming business located in Alexandria, VA. The business was established in 2012 and has experienced stable year over year revenue and consistent cash flow due to its reputation, excellent service and care, and competitive pricing. The business is part of a well-known and reputable multi-unit business platform with strong brand recognition in Northern Virginia. They employ an experienced team of trainers, groomers, and other staff that keeps customers and their pups happy and returning whenever their services are required.
This specific segment of the pet services industry is part of a rapidly growing market. This is especially true in the DC Metro area with many professionals who work full time and can’t be with their dogs during the workday and/or travel frequently and can’t always take their dogs with them. However, the time and resources required to create a business like this from scratch, hire employees, and build up a clientele can be challenging. The current owner loves what they do and has enjoyed creating such a successful operation, but has decided it’s time to retire and will be moving out of the area when they do so.
The business has excellent reviews on popular platforms like Google, Yelp, Facebook and generates significant business through referrals and word of mouth. They were also rated as a “Top Doggy Daycare” by Washingtonian Magazine in multiple years recently. If you're a dog lover or work in this industry and want to own your own business, then don't let this tremendous opportunity pass you by as it won't last long!
The business is located in an industrial complex right off of a highly traveled road with easy access to major highways. Lots of residential communities and businesses nearby make it a very convenient location for customers to drop off their beloved animals. The business occupies approx. 5100 sq ft of space with a prime end cap location that has great visibility for approx. $8,010/mo. Facility includes front desk area, public rest room, grooming room with 2 tubs, laundry/mop sink room, kitchen, storage, overnight room, 4 dog play areas (2 large/2 small) and an artificial turf outdoor play area.
The business has seen stable and steady year over year revenue that is expected to continue. There is great potential for expansion by adding more groomers, additional services like dog walking and focusing more on expanding existing higher revenue services. A new owner could also implement new marketing initiatives to create awareness about the business. There is lots of potential for a new owner to take it to the next level.
There is standard competition for the industry and market for grooming, boarding, and doggy daycare.
Retiring and moving out of the area.
Owner will provide 2-4 weeks of support and training as needed.
