Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular fish and chip shop business, which is ideally located in Leicestershire.
The business was originally established in the 1970s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £380,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 65%.
Our clients offer a wide variety of traditional fayre including fish & chips, pies, sausages, burgers, kebabs, wraps and kiddies’ meals, to name a few, as well as a selection of beverages. The property boasts 84 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.
The property boasts a spacious sales and display area with tiled walls and flooring and a breakfast bar with four chairs. To the rear is a back room, which is well fitted out to suit the trade, a large potato preparation room and a WC. To the first floor is a two bedroom flat, with its own separate entrance, which could be available by separate negotiation.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food and services 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 introducing new food lines such as pizza’s and a delivery service within the area. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. The business would also benefit from a website to advertise the business, which could incorporate online ordering facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
This fish and chip shop occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located in Leicestershire. The property is located in a busy shopping area and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the immediate area.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is just over 1½ miles away.
