Somehow, the business world has a reputation for being boring, but that is far from the truth!
Running your own business is a daily challenge with many and varied rewards even if you work in a commonplace field, but some businesses are highly unusual.
Here are four of the most unusual businesses currently for sale on BusinessesForSale.com!
Do you like cats?
If you're fond of our feline friends, businessforsale.com has several opportunities that could suit you, including an established cattery in Fife. Bucklyvie Cottage boasts an annual turnover of £85,000, with an undisclosed profit, and is on the market for £499,995, complete with living accommodation in a beautiful, rural setting.
Although surrounded by grazing land, the cattery is served by a nearby motorway and is not far from St. Andrews and Perth and is within easy travelling distance of Glasgow and Edinburgh. This business offers the chance to combine profitability with an idyllic lifestyle.
A record breaker
While that business is unusual, this one is completely unique. Travelling from fairground to fairground throughout the USA since 2004, the World's Tallest Pinball is a curiosity and popular attraction which has recorded a turnover of $130,000 and is for sale at £45,000 due to the high cost of transportation; there is still potential for a yearly profit in the region of $50,000.
The offer includes all necessary contact information to continue appearing on the same circuit; ideal for those attracted to the carnival life.
Who wouldn't want to own a brewery?
On a far larger scale, this organic farm and brewery, situated in rural Normandy, has a turnover of between €100,000 and €250,000, with similarly large profits and is for sale at a price of between €500,000 and €1m, subject to negotiation.
Selling cask ales locally and bottled ales worldwide, the package includes several buildings, such as a five-bedroom house and an 18th-century cider brewery on site. As Normandy's only brewer of Real Ale and the host of the Normandy Beer Festival, this award-winning business could grow even bigger via internet sales and offers a dependable income.
All you need is ... a taxi!
This is not just any taxi, but a Beatles tour taxi, which can be yours for £30,000 and provides a business turnover of between £50,000 and £100,000 with profits available upon request. As Liverpool has recently been voted the third best city in the world for tourists and attracts a great many Beatles fans, this is a valuable opportunity. The taxi itself is a white Ford SMAX 7 seater with BeatleCity Tours decals, while the sale includes a private plate and the operator's licence, providing the buyer passes the usual checks.
These four are just a small sample of many interesting opportunities on businessesforsale.com. If you think you'd like to own your own business, have a look at what's on offer; you might just find your ideal situation!
