Are you looking for the best self-employed job in the world? This has to be a contender...
Everett Masson & Furby are delighted to off for sale a fully equipped mobile catering (fish and chip) van (Chippy Antigua) that has been in business for 17 years at a secure location at Dickenson Bay one of the prime tourist areas of Antigua and next to a beach that has been listed as one of the best 30 beaches in the world!
The business is highly rated on Trip Advisor and featured in many magazines and web sites (Antigua Nice, The Antiguan, Food and Drink Antigua) as well as being the only Caribbean member of the National Fish Fryers Federation of the UK and had a feature article in the March 2015 issue of the NFF News Magazine.
The business has an extensive and loyal customer base of not only tourists but also locals and is based on only 2 days opening per week (Wed and Fri 3.30 pm to 9pm) plus occasional special bookings and events. So there is tremendous scope for expansion not only with extra openings at the present site but also several other sites already recognized around the island, and with the pleasant climate the opportunity to open 52 weeks a year.
The business is totally self-contained, fully equipped and has a seating capacity of 40+.
This is a turnkey opportunity (sold with a vehicle for towing and of course the mobile fish and chip shop) that is highly profitable with very low overheads and has been operated by the owner couple only, providing a healthy income and allowing time for other ventures.
The menu is eclectic with the usual fish and chips along with offerings of scampi, lobster, curries, homemade pies, sausages and various side dishes plus desserts and a fully stocked bar.
The business is also hired out for special events such as birthdays, weddings and sports days and is on venue for Test match cricket especially when England play in Antigua with their vast following of supporters.
The business achieved annual sales of EC 140,952 and a profit of EC 97,939 in 2015 on undemanding hours and with a 3 week holiday for the vendors. This year they are on target to exceed this amount (approx. 3.35 EC to the £).
The owners are selling after 17 successful years to concentrate on other ventures . The selling price is 97,500 us dollars (negotiable).
Contact Agents Everett Masson & Furby with any questions and to arrange to be put in contact with the vendor, quoting reference CF32439LN.
Wednesday and Friday, 3:30pm to 9:00pm
