Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Urban Tonic Birmingham Ltd. This hair salon was originally established in 1992 and has been a great success.
Our client first took over the store in 2010 but is now looking to sell the business due to other business interests.
The salon offers an extensive range of services such as:
Massage and holistic therapies
The salon also offers speciality treatments including-
Colonic and food allergy therapies
The salon uses the Premier Solution management system and offers many services and treatments all at great prices. There is a price list of all services on the website The website has an update on all offers and promotions for each month. This is a brilliant website with a lot of information available, it also includes booking online.
The salon promotes itself using Wahanda and Facebook and send regular emails to clients.
As per 2016 accounts the turnover for the business is an advised £70,291 with gross profit at 54%. This is a great income however we believe this could be increased by offering extended opening hours to attract more customers. The salon offers wedding packages, and could promote their services at wedding fairs.
The business has loyal and repeat trade, which is due to the high quality of services it offers customers. The surrounding area is densely populated and there is little competition.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone looking for a salon with a great reputation and loyal clientele. There has recently been a lot of money spent on the business leaving the salon looking clean, modern and welcoming.
We are advised the current client would be happy to offer a hand over period to the buyer. This would be a great bolt on or start up business.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid missing out on this business.
