Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this thriving business which makes multi- award winning handmade soaps, skincare products and soy candles. These are created using traditional methods and the finest ingredients. It has been under the proud ownership of our client since 2013 during which time they have made considerable investment and have grown the business. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendor wishes to spend more time with her family. During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its quality products, friendly service and value for money.

Sapooni sells its hand made products to a still-expanding repeat and referral customer base who are a mix of private customers who purchase online and retail resellers or purchase from Sapooni on a wholesale basis, along with attending south west craft and trade fairs. This truly unique opportunity would naturally furnish any enthusiastic purchaser with considerable scope for continued growth, not least with regard to possible investment in employed or self-employed staff in order to fully exploit year-round local and regional demand.

The business is run at a pace to suit the owner’s, trading sensible hours. We are advised that it generates a turnover in the region of £50,000 per year with high gross profit margins. The current owner has booked stands at the most prestigious Devon/ Cornwall Christmas Fairs 2017. These alone are expected to generate turnover in the region of £15k-£20k

There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly by adopting a more vigorous marketing policy of its existing products and services, particularly through its informative dedicated website. There is considerable scope to capitalise on the 11 National industry awards the business has been awarded in the last two years, and build upon the sound reputation for quality & affordability the business has.

Though by its very nature eminently relocatable throughout the region, the business currently operates from a home base situated with excellent access to major road and motorway links (A38, A30, M5 etc.) in Saltash which is close to the vibrant and historic city of Plymouth.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended.
