Founded in 2016, this profitable pet grooming business began in one location in the Grand Rapids, MI metro market. Since then, demand for pet services increased dramatically. Not only did a lot of people adopt pets during the pandemic, but millennials have also become the largest generational demographic segment of pet owners.

The business expanded in 2021 with leased property in a strip mall located about 8 miles from the original location, situated along a busy thoroughfare with a traffic count of 30,000 vehicles per day. By the end of 2021, both locations were operating at capacity. The 2022 fiscal year demonstrates a full year of operations out of both locations. The business is fully staffed. This is a turnkey operation!

The sale includes the businesses in both locations as well as the real estate for the first location. For the second location's leased space, the buyer would negotiate a new lease with the landlord. Inventory is minimal and is additional, at cost.

The seller currently works 1 - 2 days at each location as a groomer. The seller would be open to staying on part time as a groomer for the new owner but is seeking to redeploy invested capital in a different venture. Pet grooming experience and certification would be helpful for the buyer to have.

The real estate for both locations includes many recent improvements .Contact listing agent for details!
