This superb Fish & Chip shop enjoys an excellent trading location being positioned on the very busy A1079 road into Hull. It is predominantly a residential area providing a high level of local custom as well as passing trade.
The business is long established and has been in the hands of the current owners for over 20 years. It is well known in the local area and has an excellent reputation for good quality food and friendly service. The business holds a grade ‘A’ award in ‘Scores On The Doors’ scheme. This is a local initiative which grades catering businesses according to the quality of food, service, standard of premises and health and safety. Grade A is the highest recognition and illustrates the standard of excellence this business has achieved. Whilst its main offer is traditional fish and chips, the shop also has an excellent menu of chilli, stew & dumplings, lasagne etc, which are all home-made and the majority of which are prepared and cooked on the premises. This offer of freshly cooked, take away food makes this business stand out from many others and we expect much interest in this opportunity.
We are advised that weekly takings are in the region of £3,500 per week, which in turn generates a very healthy income for the working owners. Financial information will be made available to seriously interested purchasers after they have formally viewed the business.
