Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy takeaway business in the delightful city of Derby, Derbyshire.
The business was established in the 1990’s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1995. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business currently only operates three days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £141,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including pizza with various toppings, kebabs, chips etc. The premises are maintained to a very high standard and very well presented. 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 are advised that the area opposite the business is due to be redeveloped and suggestions include a leisure centre, a shopping centre or a supermarket, which would massively increase the footfall in the area.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours as it is currently run at a pace to suit our client. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website, which could include online ordering facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
