Looking to leave the boss behind and reap the benefits of your hard work, experience, and expertise? After 25 years in the pool and spa maintenance industry this owner decided to take the dive and set up his own pool and spa business. He started by initially providing a mobile maintenance and repair service which led to opening his own shop, supplying his customers with quality chemicals and equipment at very affordable prices.
The retail pool and spa shop, located prominently on a corner block of a busy major road, where 1000s of cars pass every day, has excellent parking. The business, which specializes in all types of swimming pool equipment, has a very large client base and a great reputation in the industry.
Stock includes:pool and spa pumps and heaters valves pool piping solar heating pool blankets and filters pool chlorination and cleaners automation systems gas and solar pool heaters a large range of Lo-Chlor chemicals all sorts of pool accessories
The Service side of the business allows customers to enjoy all year-round hygienic pools and spas. Clients require water testing and regular monthly servicing, and the pool technicians are kept busy with call outs to diagnose and fix problems using stock and parts supplied by the store.
The dual function of store and service has enabled the business to grow beyond expectations. Johnno's Pool and Spa Services proudly boasts its status as the authorised service centre for Blue Marlin pools on the Mornington Peninsula. Blue Marlin Pools is the largest pool builder in Victoria and on the Mornington Peninsula with over 170 pools being built per year. Blue Marlin customers, once they have purchased their pool, are automatically referred to Johnno's Pool and Spa for regular servicing and replacement products, where they are presented with a VIP card awarding them a 15% discount on all in-store items.
The 90 square metre (approx.) pool store is light-filled, spacious and clean and includes extensive shelving and cupboard space, office/reception area, kitchenette, and bathroom. In addition, there is a neat garden courtyard and extensive outdoor covered store areas along the side and rear of the shop. There is also a camera to phone security system in place. Rent is a very reasonable $2,812 (approx.) including GST per month and there is a secure 3 x 3 x 3 lease in place. All plant and equipment is included in the price and includes Hyundai Iload vans (2012 and 2015 models) with business decals, plus all the tools in the vans.
Potential purchasers will be provided with all financial information (including a Section 52 'Statement by a Vendor of a Small Business'), lease, and plant and equipment list upon signing a Mutual Confidentiality Agreement. Inspections can be arranged outside normal trading hours where there will be an opportunity to discuss the business in detail with the Vendor. The Vendor, who is retiring for health reasons, is willing to negotiate a lengthy handover and training period with the new owners to ensure a smooth transition.
Johnno's Pool and Spa is growing at a great rate of knots and is ready to tale the next step and, with an enthusiastic individual or couple at the helm, the business is forecast to double in the next 12 to 18 months. The business has the financial strength to be run under management or hands-on by the owners and comes with a loyal and competent staff base.
So, if you are ready to take the plunge into a lifestyle business, located next to the bay in popular Mornington, now is the right season for doing it.
