Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold café/takeaway located in Southport, Merseyside.


Mr Potato was established by our client in this bustling area of Southport in January 2018. The business has become very well known in this area and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted online. Mr Potato has a comprehensive website in place.


Mr Potato occupies a main road trading position within a parade of shops and offices. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as large multiples such as Sainsbury’s and Primark. There are also a number of tourist attractions nearby including the seafront and pier as well as Southport College and Southport Train Station. The area is well linked by the A565 and A570 with very strong public transport links and parking is available in the surrounding area.


The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s other business commitments being higher than anticipated, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a fourteen year lease which began in 2016 at a cost of £190 per week.


The business operates with one member of staff in employment supporting our client working on a full time basis.


Mr Potato has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. We are advised that the business has annual turnover of £108,550 with a gross profit of £83,584. Full financial information is available upon request.


The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.


This highly reputable business occupies an enviable trading position in a busy area of Southport. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new menu options, delivery services and longer opening hours. The business could also apply for an alcohol licence and offer event catering for local events such as the flower show, air show, firework display and so on. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
