Authentic Thai Cuisine Takeaway Reading

For Sale
  • Reference: 13308 J
  • Location: Reading, Berkshire
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Thai Now Ltd. The business was established by our client in 2015. The takeaway is now being offered to the market, due to our clients desire to focus on other commitments.

Thai Now is already well known in the area and has an excellent reputation with good reviews online and a loyal customer base. The business generates a turnover of £ 135,000 per annum with a gross profit of 65%.

The business benefits from a quality website with an easy to use online ordering system which is popular with customers. This already has the records of 1,600 customers and the option to market offers through text messaging to these customers.

Thai Now has established a strong brand identity which reflects the quality of the business. This brand is reinforced on its well-lit shop frontage, packaging and bags.

There are opportunities for growth including joining JustEat, opening at lunchtimes and increasing delivery areas. Further, there is a potential revenue stream in outside catering and the cooking facility could be expanded to go under an extraction area which is currently unused.

There is accommodation above the takeaway included in the sale. The rent payable on the whole premises is £13,000 per annum but the rent received from the 4 rooms above is £18,420 per annum so a new owner could operate from a comfortable position of receiving rent rather than paying it.

This is a fantastic recently refurbished business opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
