Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular fish & chip shop and restaurant business, which is ideally located within Grimsby, Lincolnshire.
The business was originally established in 1950 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2001. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates on limited hours for 5 days per week, generating a turnover in the region of £54,580 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 58%.
Our client offers a traditional chip shop menu, including fish & chips, pies, puddings and sausages. The property boasts 118 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard. To the ground floor is the main service area with seating for 20 covers, a rear kitchen and storage areas. To the first floor is a large seating area with 52 covers.
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 there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the business currently operates on limited hours for five days per week. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and service offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this fish & chip shop business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointed.
Mr Chippy Fish Bar occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the town of Grimsby, Lincolnshire. The business is situated on Dunscome Street, just of the very busy Freeman Street 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 car parking facilities to the front of the premises.
