The subjects comprise a modern hot food takeaway unit, trading as a traditional fish and chip shop. The premises were subject to refurbishment in the recent past, with a new frying range installed to the premises around four years ago. The property comprises a front sales area together with rear kitchen/preparation area and staff WC.
Seaway Chip Shop has been operated by the current owners for 35 years and they are offering the business for sale as they now wish to retire from the trade.
The business operates as a traditional fish and chip shop offering chip suppers although there is undoubtedly scope for a new owner to introduce additional products such as pizzas or similar. In addition, no deliveries are undertaken through choice but demand is known to exist.
We understand a new frying range was installed four years ago. The range has the potential for part to be converted to provide a cold counter or alternatively a hot box for deliveries. There is also an area which could be utilised for the installation of pizza ovens.
The business is well supported locally with an excellent reputation and it benefits from increased trade from nearby caravan parks, particularly in the summer months.
Opening hours are currently 4 pm – 11 pm, 7 days and the business is operated by the two owners, with assistance from a pool of 5 part time staff.
Accounts for the business will be shown to seriously interested parties following a formal viewing of the property. The business has generated a turnover in the region of £460,000, net of VAT over recent years. From this a gross profit of over 60% is generated and the net profit prior to depreciation has been at least £180,000 over recent years.
