New American Hot Dog Shop In Aberdeen For Sale

Aberdeen, Aberdeen City
Asking Price:
£200K - £500K
Net Profit:
£100K - £250K

About The Business:

Everyone deserves to get some proper hot dogs – steamed, with 100% beef sausages and wrapped up in the best quality American buns. You can visit 7 different United States just by stepping into this tiny shop as each state has its own signature hot dog which you can get here – right in the heart of Aberdeen.

The design of the shop is connecting Aberdeen to the USA – its grey colours blend in nicely into the street its located on in the Granite City but the landscapes and various posters inside are coming right from across the ocean – it’s like having America right next to you!
Our hot dogs are really big compared to what customers can get in other places (as that’s what you would get in the USA) with very reasonable prices. They are full of flavour from various toppings – you can get anything from cooked onions to sauerkraut. Everything is freshly prepared each morning inside the shop by our hard working team members. Our hot dogs are also much healthier compared to any other fast food because both sausages and the buns are steamed, so there is no oil used at all. Our fries are oven cooked as well with no oil, so our customers get the best quality food every time they come in.

Property information



Lease Terms:

5 year lease which started in April 2018 with the option to extent it for further 5 years. The premises were previously vacant for about a year, so there shouldn't be a problem to extend the lease even further if required.

Leasehold Rent:

£25,000 per annum

Premises Details:

Premises are laid out over 2 floors - ground floor has the customer area and the preparation area. Basement has the kitchen, manager's office, stock room with all the freezers/fridges and the stock area for drinks, packaging etc.

Size in square feet:
Planning Consent:

The premises have changed its use from class A (shop) to class C (restaurant) - this was the last shop allowed to change its use and other landlords are not keen to allow the business to do this, so the premises are providing a lot of opportunities.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

There is a lot of potential to establish more shops in Aberdeen or other cities like Edinburgh, Glasgow etc. This could become the first American hot dog franchise in the UK.

Competition / Market:

There are not many places that sell hot dogs in Aberdeen which makes this shop unique. The main competition are other fast food places but they mainly sell burgers or chicken.

Reasons for selling:

The idea from beginning was to set up the business, trial it and then sell it on to someone who would be willing to run it. The funds are needed for establishing a new business which will potentially be sold on as well.

Trading hours:

Monday - Thursday: 11am to 8.30pm
Friday - Saturday: 11am to 10pm
Sunday: 11am to 7pm

Years established:

Support & training:
