Tabac occupies a truly prominent trading position in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire. The unit benefits from significant public footfall as it is immediately adjacent to Hamilton Central Railway Station, opposite Hamilton Bus Station and has a taxi rank outside the front door.
The single storey unit has an open plan layout inside with customers entering via the ‘Convenience Store’ with Hot Food counters & preparation areas at the far end. The takeaway benefits from an alloy framed window hatch, allowing staff to serve customers during busy periods from outside (e.g. school children at lunchtimes).
The store area has a variety of display racks, chillers & shelving units and the kitchen area is well equipped with all the key appliances, including: Valentine Chip Fryer, Double sink, Open hot plates, Commercial Fridge, Fridge/Freezer & Freezer, Pizza Ovens, Gas Cooker, Panini Press, Microwave, and Tea Urn. Off to rear is a staff cloakroom and WC.
The property benefits from a recently installed ceiling mounted electric split (heat/cool) system.
Our client’s family have owned the business for circa. 35 years and in this time, they have diversified from Convenience Store/Newsagents to now offering more of a Hot Food Takeaway with a small selection of confectionery, crisps, soft drinks, newspapers and tobacco available. Tabac is also a registered National Lottery outlet.
The Takeaway Menu offers cooked breakfasts, paninis, hot & cold filled rolls, pakora, pizzas, pasta dishes, baked potatos and a selection of drinks & ice cream. Local favourites include ‘Dempseys Big Breakfast’, ‘Chips and cheese’ and Cheeseburgers.
Currently there is no website for the business and orders are made by walk-in’s and phone, but mainly through JustEat.co.uk. Customers review the food and service they receive on JustEat, Tabac is currently rated a prestigious 5.5/6 stars.
As a successful family run business Tabac continues to trade profitably. The business has, however, now reached a point where it would benefit from a new operator, with the drive to take it back up to its full potential. Adding seating areas for customers is something to be explored, as is making better use of the available hours, the business having previously operated 24 hours a day.
