HHilton Smythe are delighted to introduce Ingham Street Chippy to the market, a well-established and reputable concern.

Ingham Street has been home to the business for well over 100 years and it has been under the careful control of our client for the previous 2 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to re-locate. The business operates at lunchtime and early evening only and generates a turnover in the region of £17,000, with a gross profit of approximately 65% as per 2016 tax return.

Our client offers a wide range of traditional chip shop meals including fish & chips, takeaway meals, pizzas, doner kebabs, pies etc, as well as a selection of beverages. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the 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 to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours later into the evenings, as well as opening at weekends. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and the goods offered.

This 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.



We are advised Freehold.


Currently the business trades:-

Monday - Friday 12.00pm – 1.30pm & 4.30pm – 6.00pm.

As previously discussed, with such an outstanding local reputation the business could easily justify significant extension of the opening hours, to create a huge increase in revenue.


The business is owner run and managed with 1 x staff member.
