This franchise in Feethams Leisure Complex has been trading since 2016 with our client in ownership since then. The business is part of the largest fast food chain in the world, with nearly 35,000 stores in 90+ countries. There are over 1,500 stores in the UK and Ireland, making the largest fast food chain in the market place. The well-established business is supported by the hugely popular worldwide franchise which includes signage, product delivery, valuable national advertising and ongoing training. A new owner will be interviewed by and two weeks training will be provided initially.


This relatively new complex is 5 minutes walk from Darlington's busy town centre along with the main line train station. It is located to several large businesses ie..Royal Mail, Darlington Borough Council head offices with development planned of large offices 1 minutes walk away from the store. The store would benefit hugely from a local marketing campaign which would significantly increase sales.


The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operating team and is only available due to our client’s other business commitments being more time consuming than anticipated. Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The business is held on a fifteen year lease which began in 2016 at a cost of £480 per week.


The business is currently operating with seven members of staff in employment supporting our client overseeing the management of the shop. This includes a full time manager.


The rateable value is £13,200. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.


This leasehold business is located within a relatively new Leisure/Cinema complex which has huge growth potential as demonstrated by this year's growth of 23% with minimal marketing. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours to include late nights and a delivery service which is in high demand in this area. There is also potential to cater for other large local businesses. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operator able to push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.

A similar store would cost around £120,000 to setup.

The existing owner is willing to offer a financial support package so that the owner can secure the opportunity for very little money upfront and/or no bank loans/expensive finance.
