Business For Sale
Owner/operator commercial kitchen exhaust canopy maintenance company
Business Location: British Columbia Postal Code: V2C Relocatable: No
Contracting Trades Repairs & Maintenance
VICS Fire & Safety is unique in its ability to fully service commercial kitchen canopies. We clean the exhaust system from fan to hood and test the kitchen's automatic fire suppression system every six months according to fire code. This business is being sold as a turn key business. Everything you need from customers to equipment is included. I operate the business from my home, with all the advantages of having a legitimate home based business, including shop and parking for equipment. Currently I am located in the Kamloops area although our customer base includes most of the BC Interior. You can operate this business from almost anywhere within the southern or central Interior.
Business is profitable on every level. Sales are consistent over many years with a healthy profit margin. Financials are prepared quarterly by an accounting firm and all taxes are up to date. Records are available. Currently I am working alone so profits are way up. Normally at least one employee would be required plus the business owner/operator. Lately I have been unable to find and retain enough employees to maintain my large customer base, solving that issue will bring greater profit.
MARKET & COMPETITION
The market for our services is strong and the competition is weak in a lot of areas. The reason I am selling is because of my age and the lack of help. This business is ideal for someone who knows how to hire successfully. Because we have always maintained an excellent reputation as both hood cleaners and a fire system service company our customer base is very loyal. A new, younger owner could easily double the size of the company, if you can find the workers. I will train if necessary.
