Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy fish & chip shop, within the town of Bolton in Greater Manchester. The business was established in 1935 and has been in our clients careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients family commitments.
The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £34,500 as per 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of approximately 65%. Our client offers a variety of fayre including fish & chips, burgers, sausages, fishcakes, scampi and sandwiches, as well as a range of Chinese dishes including curries, spring rolls, sweet & sour and rice.
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. The business is truly in a walk-in-and trade-condition and is maintained to a high standard.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours of the business. A new owner could also establish a website to advertise the goods offered. This is an ideal opportunity for a new owner to acquire a busy fish & chip takeaway business; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
