We were approached to direct the sale of a popular children’s play centre located in North Yorkshire on the boundary of a populated residential area. The business demonstrated an impressive weekly turnover and was fitted out to a high specification. The premises consisted of a reception area, an open-plan play centre with a variety of equipment, soft play areas and climbing frames. In addition to this, it was made up of a cafeteria with a seating capacity of 55, a commercial kitchen, store and car park. The premises were held on a secure lease with very sensible rent and the business was in operation over 7 days.
The business had the potential to generate much more with a working owner in place. We advertised it on a regional and national level to garner interest from genuine buyers across the country due to the versatility of the business. The business attracted a loyal customer base across North Yorkshire so it was a profitable entity for any interested party with experience in the children’s entertainment sector.
"We secured an interested buyer with a strong interest in ensuring continuity of the play centre and vision to establish a hairdresser and beauty salon for children and a sensory play area to attract a wider customer range. We carried out an initial valuation of the business and secured a buyer with an interest in the sector. " Stuart Moorhouse – Selling My Business
