This is a well-established, profitable and easy to manage dog and cat kennel with 35 years of history and a loyal customer base.  It is an excellent income opportunity for a pet lover who wants to enjoy working while earning an income. You can share your passion for companion animals with customers who care as much as you do. And with an asking price that is only 1.24 times net cash flow, this business is an exceptional value.

After buying the kennel in 2009, the current owner immediately applied his accounting and computer skills to fully automate kennel reservations and grooming appointments, computerize accounting and payroll, implement credit card payments, convert from traditional yellow pages print advertising to online advertising, and many other things. This clean, organized and well-run kennel is a "Turn Key Operation" ready for the new owner(s) to step into and take it to the next level and beyond. The previous owners have done the hard part to build an excellent foundation for a new owner to grow this well-operated business. The business is ready for a hands-on owner/operator to come in, make it her/his own and exploit several potential growth opportunities.

Required Licenses: Business, State

Real Estate Number: 01731143
Competition:There are no other kennels in the immediate surrounding area except a vet office that offers very limited kennel service. Quality pet daycare & boarding services are always in high demand due to the increasing number of pet owners. It also has a very high customer retention rate once the trust has been built with the customer.
Growth Potential:Growth prospects are strong due to a loyal, high-quality client base. There is a huge database of customers from 35 years of business. Silicon Valley is experiencing significant growth and so increased marketing efforts should generate new clients. Plus, there are several other potential growth opportunities for this business such as:  expanding grooming services beyond its current role of simply supporting the boarding business (the business does not have a "professional" groomer; the kennel staff is trained to do basic baths if requested by customers)  expanding doggie daycare  adding dog training  closing or reducing doggie daycare and converting some of the space into a small pet boutique carrying high-end, high-profit specialty pet foods and supplies.
Training/Support:Seller will negotiate a transition period
Seller Financing:Seller may consider some financing for a qualified buyer
Sale Reason:Retirement
