Practice Ownership at Vets4Pets Southend Airport
About the practice
Vets4Pets Southend Airport is a busy, profitable practice with an impressive year on year growth, currently averaging between 220-260 visits per week.
It is a well established and highly regarded practice in the area, on a spacious mezzanine level inside the Pets at Home store on the Southend Airport retail park. The instore position provides a great commercial opportunity in continuing to work together with the store team, developing ways to drive footfall and increase engagement.
The practice has been RCVS PSS accredited since 2018 and an RVN training practice since 2015. The practice was also awarded RVN training practice of the year for 2021.
There are 3 consult rooms, open plan dispensary, prep area and lab area, theatre, separate cat and dog wards (with one walk in kennel), an isolation room, a small kitchen/office and a separate toilet. There is plenty of free onsite parking for clients and colleagues and the practice is minutes from the A127. The Greater Anglia train line runs beside us with great links to London and beyond. The airport is once again expanding its flight offerings following the pandemic, so this will offer even more opportunities for travel in the future.
On offer to a potential partner(s) is a high performing practice with an excellent, dedicated team of colleagues, with approx. 4000 active clients, split canine/feline and small furries.
