Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market The Jolly Fryer. The business was taken over by our clients over 2 years ago and they have really enjoyed running this thriving chippy. The business is now being put on the market due to our clients moving out of the area. The chippy runs as a traditional fish and chip shop with the sale of some great classics like steak pudding, sausage and pies. They also sell kebabs and burgers, which are great sellers. The business benefits from a large amount of loyal customers who bring in a lot of repeat trade. The area allows for a lot of passing trade of which the business derives much of its custom. The current turnover is an advised £75,400 per annum. We believe this could be increased massively by doing some or all of the following-Opening SundaysExpanding the menuOffering deliveries for products such as pizzas, burgers, curries and noodles. Each of these suggestions we believe could massively boost turnover, increasing sales from more further a field. This is an opportunity perfect for a husband and wife team. The chippy is in a walk in trading position, and it comes with a 2 bedroomed flat above. Viewing comes highly recommended to any interested buyer. Please contact Hilton Smythe for further details on this great business.
