Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this fish and chip shop restaurant and takeaway. The business was originally established in this location in the 1970's. Our clients took over the fish and chip shop in 1999. The owners are now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business runs as a licenced fish and chip shop and restaurant. The chippy is situated in a seaside resort and benefits from good all year-round trade, with much custom in the warmer summer months from tourism. The business offers a classic chippy menu. Dishes include, fish, chips, sausage, fish cakes, burgers, fish fingers as well as burgers, chicken, pasties, plus a range of soft drinks, hot drinks, wines and beers. The business boasts a continuous 5-star food hygiene rating.
The restaurant side of the business has an extensive menu offering the takeaway menu plus, jacket potatoes, grills, sandwiches, breakfasts and salads as well as regular specials.
The business has excellent historical accounts and in 2016 the chippy generated a turnover in the region of £458,000, with a gross profit of 72%. This is a very healthy turnover, with the potential to be increased. Opening hours vary depending on the time of year. We feel the opening hours could be extended out of summer months to benefit from the tourist and local trade.
Social media is a great cost effective way of advertising a business. We feel that the business could further benefit from a Facebook page and website.
This is a fantastic Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
