Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular fish and chip shop in the city of Lancaster, Lancashire.

Established as a Fish and Chip shop for over 80 years the business was purchased by our clients and fully renovated in 2010 to a high specification throughout.

The building benefits from UPVC double glazing, gas central heating and fully re-roofed as well as the installation of state of the art high efficiency counter range and quality equipment. Top score on the Food Hygiene Rating of 5.

Since our clients took ownership of the business they have ran it at a pace to suit their lifestyle and are now offering it to the market due to their desire for a well-deserved retirement

The business serves a traditional fish and chip shop menu and with only 21 hours opening per week the business generates a turnover in the region of £63.000 per annum (48wks) with a gross profit of approximately 68%

The property offers spacious owners living accommodation to the first floor with hallway, large lounge, 2 double bedrooms and 3 piece bathroom suite.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre and service offered. There is also huge scope to expand the menu, perhaps by offering pizza or kebabs.

There is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular fish and chip shop to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The property is situated in a densely populated residential area, from which the business derives much of its trade. The fish and chip shop benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as on-street parking facilities to the front and side of the premises.

Lancaster is the county town of Lancashire and is situated on the River Lune. Lancaster is a historic city, which offers an unusual level of contemporary cultural activity.
