REF 7294 – Leasehold Sandwich Shop & Catering Business
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold sandwich shop and catering business located in Birkenhead, Merseyside.
Lunch & Judy Ltd was established by our client in this bustling area of Birkenhead in 2000. The business offers a range of freshly prepared food including breakfasts and lunches as well as outside catering options. It has become very well known in this area and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted online. Lunch & Judy Ltd has a comprehensive website in place.
Lunch & Judy Ltd occupies a main road trading position within a parade of shops and offices. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as large multiples such as Argos and Wimpy. Pyramids Shopping Centre is also nearby. The area is well linked by the M53 with very strong public transport links and parking is available in the immediate and surrounding area.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s retirement plans the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a five year lease which began in 2020 at a cost of £138.50 per week.
The business operated pre Covid-19 with two full-time staff, two part-time staff, and our client working full-time. Currently during limited lockdown conditions it operates with one full-time and one part-time staff, plus our client continuing to work full-time.
Lunch & Judy Ltd has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. The accounts year end 30th November 2018 show that the business has an annual turnover of £153,308 with a gross profit of £90,519. Accounts can be made available after viewing.
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This well known and long established business occupies an enviable trading position in a busy area of Birkenhead. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new menus and longer opening hours as the shop is currently open only five days per week. There is also scope to expand the outside catering side of the business further with a targeted marketing plan and advertising. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
