Veritas Business Sales are privileged to offer to the market this respected Fish & Chip takeaway which is located in Gloucester. There has been a fish & chip shop trading from these premises since the 1980’s and was closed for a short period when my client re-opened the business back in February 2019. They are now offering the business for sale as their other business interests require their attention.
Since ownership they have totally refurbished, redecorated and installed new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Rys Fry is overseen by the owner and employs the help of 1 full time and 1 part time members of staff and the forecast turnover for year ending February 2021 will be circa £65,000. Obviously due to Covid-19 its been a difficult trading year but all the foundations are in place moving forward when things go back to normal. They have built a fantastic reputation for serving only the finest fish & chips, along with, pies, chicken, saveloys, condiments, kebabs, burgers and cold drinks and boasts a 5 star Facebook rating.
We believe that a new owner operator could increase trade by extending the current opening times, increasing the food offering, by adding kebabs and pizzas. There is scope to add deliveries and join the on-line delivery portals such as Just eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo.. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a young, growing business with untapped potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
