Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Warburtons Traditional Fish and Chips, a very popular fish & chip shop, offering eat in or takeaway. The shop is ideally located New Hall Lane, Preston.The business has been in our client’s ownership since 2016. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s family commitments. Our client offers a variety of takeaway food, including traditional fish & chips, pies, to name a few, as well as a selection of soft drinks, which people can take away and drink off the premises. The premises are well maintained and decorated to a 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 embarking on the modern marketing schemes, offering a delivery service and using sites such as JustEat.comThis 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.
