INTRODUCTION

Black’s Finest Fish and Chip Shop has been trading on High Road since 2012 although there has been a chip shop at this location since 1998. Our client has worked hard to build a reputation for excellent quality and friendly service. The shop has received several accolades including winning first place in their category at the 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards, making the finals of the 2017 Fish & Chip Awards, and regularly achieving the NFFF Quality Award standard. In 2018 & 2016 the shop was named the best chippy in the Lancaster & Morecambe area. Black’s Finest Fish and Chips has a strong social media presence with over 1000 Facebook followers and over 300 following on twitter.

LOCATION

The business is located at the heart of Halton village on a busy main road within a busy parade of village shops including a hairdressers, village store, newsagents and letting agents. Halton village is slightly to the east of the city of Lancaster, situated on the banks of the beautiful River Lune. The village boasts a fantastic skatepark and adventure playground, an eco-village with co-housing project (and its own hydroelectricity power station!) and a number of picturesque riverside and countryside walks. The scenic Lune Valley cycle path runs past the village between Lancaster and Caton, making it a popular destination for walkers and cyclists alike. Toward Caton along the Lune Valley cycle path lies the Crook o' Lune picnic area, offering stunning views of the river nestled in miles of open Lune Valley countryside. Since the opening of The Bay Gateway road access to the village from both Lancaster and Morecambe has greatly improved. The centre of either town is now only 10 minutes from the centre of Halton by car, and motorists on the M6 can be in the village within 5 minutes of leaving the motorway at junction 35.

REASON FOR SALE

This opportunity has become available due to our clients’ other business interests and therefore the business has been placed on the open market at this appealing price point.

SUMMARY

This is an exceptionally efficiently run business that has been consistently winning awards since opening its doors in June 2012. Its reputation online is second to none and as the only chip shop in the village the business is at the heart of the local community. The business offers a solid trading platform for a new owner and this makes this proposition an exciting one as it shows steady growth over the years. Our client has had no need to expand the business has it fits into a lifestyle however there is an opportunity to build the business should a new owner wish to do so. The business does not actively advertise as there is no requirement to do so as all marketing is done through social media. Facebook and Instagram accounts along with other platforms will of course be transferred to the new buyer upon completion. There are currently 3 reasonably large scale housing developments either planned or being built in the village at the moment. We anticipate that this will provide additional trade from construction workers during the building process and add more chimney pots into the immediate customer base within the village. This very well respected business presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner operator to enjoy and develop. With a genuine reason for sale and a price that offers exceptional return on money invested early viewings are advised as a speedy completion is anticipated and demand for this business will be high.
