Minnis Bay Fish & Chips is a well-established traditional fish and chip shop, located in the popular seaside town of Birchington, which is approximately 4 miles west of Margate on the Kent coast.
The business is situated on the main high street which has a mix of independent and national retailers, plus transport facilities such as Birchington on Sea mainline train station. The station is less than a quarter of a mile away and links London Victoria which brings a vast number of tourists to the area.
Whilst the business has only been run under the current ownership since 2016, it has built up an excellent reputation for providing high quality food for both the take away service and those choosing to eat in, although frying times are limited to approximately 47 hours per week, Tuesday to Saturday through personal choice. In our opinion any new owner could open 7 days a week with Sunday being potentially the busiest day of the week in peak season. There is also potential to open early for breakfast throughout the year. There is also a high demand for gluten free and vegan options in the area which are currently not catered for.
We have been advised that the majority of the income generated comes from the take away aspect of the business, although it does benefit from a 26-cover restaurant which is in good order with traditional tables and chairs which offer flexible seating arrangement. Outside seating for 6 covers is available subject to weather conditions.
Summary. This is an ideal opportunity for an energetic and hands on owner to acquire this well used traditional fish and chip shop, situated in a popular Kent coastal location who can take this business to the next level, and build upon the already excellent reputation gained under the current ownership.
A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the area in general, business opportunity and overall condition throughout.
