Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Artisam. This restaurant was originally established in the 1970’s and was taken over by our client in 2013. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other interests.
The restaurant specialises in Asian infused cuisines. They offer an extensive high quality Chinese menu. The business prides themselves on exception food and drink. The business sells a variety of dishes such as Spicy salt & pepper chicken fillets, Deep fried cod fillets in black bean sauce, Thai Green Chicken Curry, Pan-fried Sea Bass and much more. This is a fantastic menu that attracts large flocks of customers. Our client is also developing healthier options for the menu.
The restaurant occupies a beautiful property that has a warm welcoming feel. The stone walls and high ceilings give off a feel of quality and tradition. We are advised that this is a successful property generating an advised turnover of around £300,000 per annum with a gross profit of around 82%.
This is a healthy turnover that could be increased. One way we feel the purchaser could do this would be to introduce a take-away option. The property comes fully equipped to cater for this option.
The sale includes a website. www.artisam-corbridge.co.uk The site has a generous amount of information, there is also a menu available to download. This is a great site that is easy to use.
