Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire, on a Leasehold basis, an exceptionally well run and performing, 60 cover Tandoori restaurant and takeaway.
Shehzad has been under the careful ownership of our client for many years growing the business to an impressive level with an excellent local reputation.
The business has been placed on the open market as it’s our clients desire to leave the industry after many successful years of trading.
The business is run as a contemporary Indian restaurant. This is an upmarket restaurant that offers a range of delicious dishes. Some of the foods available are: Tandoori, Bengal Biryani, tikka masala, bhuna, madras and much more.
The restaurant further benefits from having an alcohol licence in place and serves a selection of beers, wines & spirits for diners, along with a healthy amount of business generated via Just Eat for online ordering & delivery service.
There is further scope to increase turnover by undertaking in a robust localised marketing campaign via local press & social media, while there is scope to update the dedicated website that is in place.
Revised opening hours could also be considered so they could potentially catch some lunchtime trade due to the busy location of the business, along with the possible introduction of a buffet serviced at various times of the day and evening.
Our client would be willing to offer a handover period to the purchaser, this will help the transaction run smoothly. This restaurant has very little competition around and would be a great opportunity for any purchaser with experience in the trade.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
