BUSINESS FOR SALE
I'm currently looking to sell my business Wanderland Tours Ltd due to other business commitments and projects.
This is a great opportunity to buy a small functioning business with very little risk and good chances of success. Would be ideal for somebody with a background in the tourist, concierge, currency, online tickets or retail sector and an appetite for expanding a budding young business. The business is 3 years old and already turned a profit in the last financial year. It has an established clientele from 4 major hotels in the area, several international language schools in London and many freelance tour managers and guides. Along with the business I'd pass on the same telephone number, website and site management tools, all customer contacts, email marketing tools, flyers and brochures, customer database and supplier contacts to set up accounts with these. I'd also be more than happy to mentor and help through with the start up phase for a few weeks.
This business has been my 'baby' for the past three years but I have other businesses that I need to attend to and so I have to let this one go. The first 3 years of a start up are the hardest and that's already been done; I'll be handing over a company that's already turning a profit. It is a small business that will need plenty of dedication, determination and a few good ideas to make it thrive. There are several revenue streams: currency exchange, tickets and souvenirs sales; telephone, internet sales... therefore many possibilities to expand.
There is no long term lease on the shop; it's simply a 12 month rent renewable every year.
The shop is fully fitted and stocked with about £3,000 worth of merchandise; £1,000 in shop fittings and £2,000 of office equipment: 3 PCs, telephone, fax, router, printer, a cash register, 2 desks, 3 chairs, shelves, filing drawers, microwave, heaters and fans.
The business is open and up and running. You can simply take over and walk in and start trading and making money from day 1.
