Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Curry Cottage. This business was established by our client in 2002. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
This is an A3 licenced Indian cuisine takeaway. The business has an excellent traditional menu with all the great classics. This includes Tikka, Tandoori, Biryani as well as some great specials. The business offers free delivery or collections.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £73,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 50%. This is a popular takeaway in a great location. We feel that there is potential to transform this property for alternative uses. The property was formally used as a restaurant and this could be an option the purchaser considers.
Included in the sale is a website. (www.currycottageferndown.co.uk) This site has a full menu available and bookings can be taken via the site. This is a great convenience for the staff and customers. Orders can also be taken via the JustEat website. This is a popular page that allows for a generous amount of custom. We feel that the takeaway could further benefit from social media. Sites such as Facebook and Twitter and great ways of advertising a business.
We are advised that there is a flat wall on the external of the first floor. This wall could be used for advertising, as this is clearly visible to passing trade.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.Location
