Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce to the market a thriving fish and chip shop cafe, which is reluctantly offered for sale as our clients look to retire. The business is very well established and we are unsure of the actual inception date, however, the business has been in our clients careful hands for 18 years, and was established for over 25 years prior to this.
The principle activities of the business lie in the sale of traditional, high quality, fish and chip shop style meals to consume either in the restaurant or to be taken away. In addition to this, the town enjoys a consistent amount of tourism, with many flocking to Holmfirth due to its natural picturesque appeal, and charm.
Whilst our clients have developed a fabulous business boasting an above average turnover, we feel there is some room for improvement, which would increase revenue. For example, the business would benefit from the introduction of a drinks licence and possibly revision of the current menu.
We would recommend early viewing and negotiations of this fantastic business opportunity to avoid disappointment.
The business enjoys an attractive detached trading position, in West Yorkshire. The affluent and quaint West Yorkshire is located approximately 6 miles south of the town of Huddersfield.
The business boasts a prominent trading location, set just back from the main road, amidst a well populated residential area. The business has the added benefit of a large private car park with space for circa 20 cars and ample street parking.
The detached premises briefly comprises:-
Good sized restaurant area capable of 64 covers, equipped with bar (not currently utilised) and disabled toilet facilities.
Leading through to the food preparation area with a 4 pan island range (with a 2 year service plan included) 5 pot bain marie, 2 chip warmers, 4 ring gas oven with griddle, plate warming cupboard, stainless steel salad bar and electric cash register.
In addition there is a side kitchen which houses 2 stainless steel preparation tables, 1 upright fridge freezer, 1 large door fridge and a good sized, racked stockroom / dry store.
To the rear there is a further well appointed preparation room containing a 56lb rumbler, electric chipper, upright double door fridge freezer, 8 tray fish fridge and further ancillary items.
Lower Ground Floor
The lower ground floor comprises a good sized part shelved store room with walk in freezer and managers office. Of additional benefit is the ideally located delivery bay with roller shutter access.
The First floor houses a very well appointed and good sized 1 bedroom flat, and customer toilets.
The premises have been very well maintained throughout and kept in excellent order both in terms of decorative, aesthetic appeal and repair.
We are freehold.
We are advised that our client would consider a leasehold option through the granting of a new lease.

Monday – Friday 11:30 – 14:30 & 16:00 – 21:00
Saturday 11:30 – 21:00

Obviously the business opening hours could be extended to cater for later night takeaways.
The business is currently owner run and generally managed, with some assistance from a part time manager.
In addition to this there are 5 full time staff and 10 part time staff.
We feel there could be significant reductions in the wages bill, which currently stands at £2000 per week, through the commitment of a husband and wife duo or business partners
According to accounts year ending August 2014.the business currently boast an excellent turnover of circa £659,790 per annum.
