Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (all on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and performing, “turnkey” portfolio of well-known sandwich shops, with an excellent reputation, associated with a strong and consistent brand.

The business has only now come to the open market as it is our clients desire to leave the industry due to upcoming relocation.

The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for many years and who have grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily.

The portfolio consists of 2 separate, beautifully presented franchises in the following high footfall locations, all with secure lease agreements in place, and further benefiting from all having well trained, experienced staff in place including a regional manager, shop managers & assistant managers to run the shops.

Brighton Hill Centre, Basingstoke RG22
Chineham Shopping Centre RG24

The Subway brand is world famous for its consistent quality from the level of service, sandwich ingredients/choices and drinks.

The first Subway opened in the U.K. in 1996 and since expanded at an exceptional rate which continues to expand today. The UK head office is based in Cambridge, offering support on R & D, Lessing, customer services, training, and franchisee services. Subway has invested heavily in developing their existing menu options by adding more health-conscious salads, wraps, plant-based options, and smaller toasted bites which has proven very successful.

Our client informs us they work very little within the business and advises any new owner working more hours would instantly make savings in the labour costs.

We are advised the business attracts a very loyal mix of customer types from nearby office workers, students, shop workers as well as family’s coming to the towns & retail centres to shop.

The business has been quick to react to forced closing due to COVID-19 and added a new delivery service through Just Eat, Uber eats, and Deliveroo which is proving very popular & the delivery side has remained strong, continuing to boost the weekly sales.

The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.

Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
