Spice Bros is a popular and well respected Indian restaurant business located in Brighton just on the outskirts of the main town centre and within a densely populated residential area which also benefits from a number of other independent retailers and national chains.
The area in general is busy throughout the day with passing footfall, although approx. 70% of the income generated each week comes from regular and growing custom who use the take away service in the evenings and at weekends.
The business was originally established by our client with the doors being opened in November 2018 and provides, what is now a well renowned restaurant within the town with approx. 54 covers which allows flexible seating arrangements.
The business has an excellent roadside trading position with good signage and has been fitted to a high standard throughout including good quality fixtures and fittings due to the total refurbishment prior to opening in 2018 by the current owners.
Since being established, our client has built a loyal and regular customer base and already has a good reputation not only locally but also further afield for the food served by the experienced chefs which include the current owners. We have been advised that the client base has grown mainly through word of mouth, not only from locals but also from tourists who have used many of the taxi firms locally. A significant social media marketing campaign has boosted the performance of the business in 2020.
We have been advised that the average takings are in excess of £13,000 per week boosted by social media marketing and a successful new menu with potential to improve further.
Current records can be inspected when viewing.
