Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular fish & chip shop and Chinese takeaway business, which is ideally located within Slough, Berkshire.
The business was established by our client in 2000 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £87,000 with a good gross profit as per 2016 accounts.
Our client offers traditional fish and chips, as well as a wide variety of Chinese meals to take away. The property boasts 56 sq. metres of floor space with a good size waiting and ordering area, an open kitchen and a rear room. The property is well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent food and service offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Rice & Fries occupies substantial ground floor, lock-up premises, ideally located within the large town of Slough in Berkshire. The business is situated within a small parade of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The property is located within a densely populated residential area, from which the business derives much of its trade. The takeaway further benefits from on-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
