Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy fish and chip shop in the town of Tipton, West Midlands.
The business was originally established in the 1970’s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2014. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £104,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our clients offer traditional fayre including fish and chips, scampi, sausages, pies, chicken nuggets, garlic bread, pizzas, kebabs and burgers, to name a few, as well as a selection of beverages. Our clients also offer a delivery service within the area. The modern purpose built unit was built approximately 4 years ago, although there has been a food based business on the site for many years. The property offers a spacious waiting and service area, as well as a large rear kitchen, which is fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an excellent 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 the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and by operating on Sundays. A new owner could build up the pizza and delivery side of the business, as this has currently not been marketed and advertised, which offers exceptional scope for future development, there is also the possibility to explore outside catering.
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.
