Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold fish and chip shop located in a busy and much sought-after area of Bolton town centre, Greater Manchester.


Market Chippy has been trading since 1960 with our client in ownership since 1960. The business has firmly established itself within the local community, having gained a large, repeat customer base and occupying a superb trading position at the main entrance to Bolton Market. The shop serves quality chips, fish, pies, puddings, sausage and hot beverages and customers can eat in or takeaway. Our client has secured an excellent reputation and a five star hygiene rating.


Situated at the main entrance of Bolton Market, the business occupies an enviable trading position on a busy main road. The property also forms part of the corner stone entrance to the outdoor market. Bolton is a bustling town centre and other businesses close by include stalls, small shops and large multiples such as Morrisons. The area is also home to Bolton College and Crompton Place Shopping Centre. Bolton is well linked by the M61 and A676 with excellent public transport links (Bolton Railway Station and Bus Station are within walking distance) and parking is available in the immediate vicinity.


The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator and is only available due to our client's retirement desires. Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.

The current lease is 25 years and began in 1995 at a cost of only £230 per week.

Bolton Market has recently undergone redevelopment and has a food hall as it’s centre piece featuring a wide range of takeaway foods. The business is well branded with large signage in place above a triple frontage. Inside, the main dining area offers seating for 54 on traditional, freestanding tables and chairs. The servery is positioned to the side and is made up of counter area and heated display ovens. To the rear is a preparation area and well equipped kitchen fitted with rumbler, chipper, chest freezer, fish fridge and much more. All areas are presented to a good standard.


The business is currently operating with four part time members of staff in employment supporting our client working on a part time basis.
