This business is top rated and has the best reputation in the area. Recommended by all area vets and large word of mouth client draw. I am currently working 8-5 Tuesday through Friday, 9-2 every other Saturday, and 8-done 1-2 Mondays per month. Grooming 6-10 dogs per day. Prices are the highest in the area by at least $5, in some cases double what other groomers charge, and I am still getting calls for new clients weekly! If you have ever dreamed of easy country living, owning a thriving business with very little overhead this is your chance!
Property value of home and land alone is approximately $55,000. Asking $80,000 for entire package. Seller is moving out of state and is motivated to sell the business with the home in order to keep the successful business in operation. These clients are loyal and dedicated to giving the best to their pets. I do not want them to have no place to go if I must shut down the business. (There are only 2 other groomers in the county where the business is located.)
Optionally included in sale is a 1999 Dodge Ram Van WagginTails Mobile Grooming Van conversion with brand new Onan 7000 gas generator (so new it hasn't even been installed yet!) Generator alone costs $5,000. The business offers mobile grooming 2 days per week, it will be up to the buyer whether they want to continue this service or not. This is the first and only mobile grooming service in the area. If buyer decides to purchase, she/he will have a moile grooming monopoly, if not, the mobile clients will just transition back to salon clients as they were before I began offering mobile. Asking an additional $18,000 to include the van with the business.

Pictures of home, business and grooming van will be provided upon request, all business reports and financial information will also e provided upon request. Serious inquiries only, please.
