Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market A Star Chippy. This premise was originally established over 25 year ago, but was taken over by our client around 3 years ago. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The business runs a take away store selling a fantastic range of products such as, burgers, kebabs, pizza’s and deserts. The business does also sell traditional fish and chips. There is a full price list of the menu available on the website. The website also allows for online orders which is a fantastic way of generating custom.
The current turnover for the business is an advised £130,000 per annum with a gross profit of 60%. Although the trade has doubled within the two years of ownership we feel turnover could be increased further.
The current owner advertises the business on JustEat and HungryHouse. The business does see a generous amount of trade through these sites and also boasts 6* reviews on JustEat. We feel walk in trade could be increased. By adding a desert counter and other facilities there should be a boost in trade.
This is a great opportunity for a purchaser looking for a walk-in trading business, included in the sale are £20,000 worth of equipment. The business is in a great trading location and we highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
