Hilton Smythe is proud to welcome to the market Trav’s Chippy.

The well-known Fish and Chip shop was first established in 1900 and our clients have owned it since 1999. The business is known for selling traditional fish and chips, burgers, pies, sausages and drinks. The business benefits from repeat trade due to its prime trading location within this busy residential area.

Our client has reluctantly decided that it is time to sell the business due to family commitments but has really enjoyed the time they have spent building up the business to the well-known and profitable business it is today. The business reports a turnover of £60,566 with a gross profit at circa 63%.

We feel the business could benefit by extending the opening hours and introducing new food lines such as pizza or kebabs as we feel this would increase the turnover massively and attract more customers to the business. Also a delivery service would maybe influence customers that live a little further away to order food and use the business more often.

The business has lots of unique selling points for example they have a 5 star food rating which all food businesses strive to achieve. As the business is located in the Lake District we feel as though for such a beautiful location the rent for shop it’s quite a good deal and is defiantly worth the investment.

Original lease length is 9 years and it has 2 years remaining
