Only one perceived weakness being a single direct competitor within the mall

With the current staff in place, the salon is fully functioning and able to “run on its own” but a new owner / manager on a full-time basis will result in increased revenue. This would be further enhanced if new treatments and a second skincare range are incorporated and marketed (such as permanent make-up, microblading, suntanning or spray tanning and makeup). A stricter stock issuing system can be put in place to save additional costs. Some current expenses can be cut out completely. The Imbalie salon next door, which specializes in skincare is also for sale through this Aldes Broker. There is an opportunity to buy both salons and merge as one. This has been done with success as combo stores within the franchise group.

The current economic climate but even in these conditions the business has grown substantially year on year

Owner emigrating

Why is this a good business?
The business is part of a 35 year old successful franchise group in the beauty sector. The business is situated within the largest and most popular mall on the West Rand. It is on a growth trajectory which could be maintained and enhanced further with a fulltime owner/manager.
