Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Sizzlers Sandwich Bar Ltd. This sandwich bar was established 23 years ago, our client took over 18 months ago and is now looking to sell the business to pursue another business venture.

The shop generates its income from the sale of hot and cold food such as breakfasts, soups, baguettes, toasties, jacket potatoes and more. The shop is well priced and has a brilliant menu. The business offers deliveries over the phone and through JustEat from which the sandwich shop receives much of its trade; the shop also has its own app, which the current owner will fully explain to the new buyer. This is a great marketing tool; the app enables you to send text messages to customers.

There is always a high amount of trade and footfall due to the main road location and the schools which are close by. We are advised this is set to rise as there are new housing estates being built close by.

Sizzlers Sandwich Bar Ltd also offers an outside catering side to the business. Popular with private functions, such as parties, funerals, weddings and corporate events. Delivery is available within the company van; the van maybe available upon separate negotiation with the owner.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a first-time buyer looking for a successful and profitable business. Sizzlers comes to the market at a genuine reason for sale and is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
