Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market an opportunity to acquire (freehold) a truly outstanding Fish & Chip Shop business with owner’s accommodation, & that has built up an enviable reputation not just locally but within the industry in general.
The Fish & Chip Company has been owned & operated successfully by the same family since 1937, a true testament to the calibre of business on offer. It is only now our clients wish to sell the business due to health reasons.
The business itself has enjoyed a consistent turnover for the last 3 years and now operates at an outstanding level of turnover and net profit that will not disappoint.
In addition to the excellent financial figures that the business reports it must be clearly stated that these have been achieved with the business only operating on a 30-hour working week, leaving huge potential to take the business to the next level.
The business operates from an immaculately presented traditional takeaway premises, with a fantastic High Street location.
The business has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and is presented in a superb “turn-key” condition. It prides itself on delivering the highest quality food cooked fresh to order, along with an exceptional level of customer service.
Included in the sale is a well presented 2 bedrooms flat, that could be utilised as owner’s accommodation or indeed introduced to the local rental market, to generate extra income.
There is scope to further increase the already impressive level of turnover with the introduction of revised opening hours (currently only 30 hours a week), with additions of opening lunch time, offering a delivery service and introducing some new additions to the menu.
This is an outstanding high turnover, turn-key business operating on life-style hours which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.
Very rarely do businesses of this calibre with high turnover and short operating hours come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
