Marquee Hire Business and Lifestyle Opportunity For Sale - Huge Potential - Lancashire

Description

OVERVIEW

We currently offer a comprehensive selection of structures for hire, mainly used for corporate events and private functions such as weddings, birthdays and other celebrations.

In a period of less than five years, we have firmly established ourselves within the events sector with a high proportion of our business sourced through our strong online social media presence, professional website and referrals from previous customers.

Using a beautiful range of modern marquees and stretch tents, we work alongside some of the North West's most popular wedding venues as one of their preferred suppliers. We also regularly work with both large and smaller niche festivals, and a number of country and agricultural shows. Our work catchment area is typically the Lake District, Cheshire, Lancashire and Yorkshire, however, there is substantial interest and work opportunities from outside of the North West.

2019 was a busy and successful year for us, but with enquiries and bookings are already taken for the 2020 season, 2021 and beyond indicate that the business is poised to go from strength to strength under the right stewardship.

REASON FOR SALE

The business is offered to the market due to the directors’ other expanding business commitments. The whole operation is currently solely run by its two directors with casual seasonal staff assisting during the busier late spring/summer periods.

Due to the directors’ other business interests, the commitment needed to take this thriving young company forward is no longer readily available. Due to the high customer demand, this

business and would ideally suit individuals prepared to invest the time, energy and enthusiasm to build on the existing success of the business.

The company is still trading and actively securing new bookings for 2020 and 2021 and beyond.

This is a perfect opportunity to walk in and take over a business with substantial forward bookings for summer 2020. Please note there is a massive opportunity to grow the business further.
