Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mooboo. This franchise location was established by our client in 2014, the owner is now looking to sell the store, due to the desire to focus on other business interests.

The business runs as a specialist bubble tea and dessert takeaway. This is a franchised company based in the UK, supplying high quality drinks and desserts. All of the drinks are lactose free, non-dairy and suitable for vegetarian. There are 1,000’s of different flavoured teas, some include matcha green tea, passion fruit, lychee, hazelnut, strawberry, vanilla as well as many more.

Mooboo has several locations this includes Bradford, Birmingham, Coventry, Newcastle, Hertfordshire, Leeds, Liverpool, two in Scotland and three in London.

Mooboo generated an advised turnover of around £79,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 67%. We feel that the business could further benefit from more advertising and marketing. This is a new niche business that requires a range of different marketing ideas in order to bring the business up to its full potential. The franchise Mooboo has a Facebook page this has over 27,500 followers.

The business is set in a prime trading location that benefits from all year-round trade. There are ample retail outlets within the Arndale alone, we feel the purchaser could look to offer deliveries to other businesses within the city of Manchester.

This is a fresh new business opportunity with huge scope. Mooboo could benefit from a hands on purchaser looking to take over a popular franchise business. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
