Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Cambridge Road Chippy. The business was originally established in the 1970's and was taken over by our client in 2017. The owner is reluctantly selling the business, due to ill health.
The business runs as a traditional fish and chip shop selling a great range of products such as pizzas, garlic bread, kebabs, burgers, fish, pies, chicken, chips, sides, sausages, as well as children's meals. The business also offer a great selection of wines and beers. The takeaway is open over lunch and in the evenings; generating a healthy turnover of approximately £223,000 per annum.
The business receives a large amount of trade from the locals that live on the estate. We feel by expanding the delivery service, trade could increase massively. Promoting the goods and services offered on sites such as Just Eat and HungryHouse, should be something the purchaser considers.
Included in the sale is a self-contained two bed owner's accommodation. If not required by the purchaser, this flat could be let out to generate an extra monthly income.
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.
