Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular fish & chip shop business, which is ideally located within the town of Leyland, Lancashire.
The business was originally established in the 1950s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2002. Only now is the business being offered to the market, due to family reasons. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £41,600 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 60%.
Our client offers traditional chip shop fayre including fish & chips, puddings, pies, sausages, burgers, fishcakes and fritters, as well as a variety of beverages. The property boasts 76 sq. metres of floor space, with a large customer area, spacious preparation/kitchen area, potato store room and stock room. The premises are very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods 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 extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering weekend trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre and service offered. The business already takes advantage of social media, with a popular page on Facebook, which has 191 likes.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Anna’s Plaice occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Leyland, Lancashire. 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 surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade.
