68 West Blackhall Street, Greenock, PA15 1XG

• Long established Italian Restaurant & Takeaway
• Been in the same family since 1926
• Prominent trading position within heart of town centre
• Deceptively large property. 206 SqM (2,218 SqFt)
• 80 cover restaurant & separate takeaway
• Turnover to April 2020: £467,470 net of VAT (47 weeks only)
• Adjusted net profit circa £115,000

The Business:

Our client’s family have owned and operated these premises since 1926, when it opened as Mazzoni Café, and was then changed to Arlecchino (Italian for Harlequin) in 1966, which it has traded as ever since. The business is therefore extremely long established and is something of an institution within the town.

The business benefits from a loyal and regular clientele, predominantly from Greenock and the surrounding areas, although does also attract people from further afield, as well as benefitting from passers by and shoppers in the area.

Arlecchino enjoys a strong reputation for its food and service, and trades as a traditional Italian restaurant offering an extensive menu with a tremendous selection of pizzas, pastas, meats, fish, burgers and salads etc, as well as offering a good vegetarian/vegan menu and lighter brunch and lunch offerings. The takeaway serves everything from the full menu but also does a good range of filled rolls, baked potatoes, sandwiches and toasties etc, as well as hot and cold drinks and ice creams.

It is felt that the sale represents a tremendous opportunity for a new owner operator to take on this much loved and extremely well performing business which still offers areas of growth. The business currently closes on a Monday and Tuesday and also does not operate any kind of delivery service, which is an area that offers real growth potential.
