Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular fish & chip takeaway business, which is ideally located in Stretford, Greater Manchester, very near to the Manchester United Football Ground.
The business was originally established 40 years ago and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2014. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to client's desire to move on. The business currently only operates on match days, Saturdays and Tuesday evenings. According to the 2017 accounts, the business generated a turnover in the region of £82,200, with a gross profit in the region of £83%.
Our client offers a variety of takeaway food, including traditional fish & chips, burgers and kebabs, hot and cold sandwiches and breakfasts, to name a few, as well as a selection of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, which people can take away and drink off the premises. The premises boast approximately 93 sq. metres of floor space, are very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and opening all week, as there are many local offices nearby and densely populated residential areas. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the food and services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level, therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
