Property description

Ref 5552 – Fish and Chip Shop
Blacks Brokers are proud to bring to the market this leasehold fish and chip shop located on Shorrock Lane, Blackburn.


Introduction


Shorrock Lane Fish and Chips has been trading here since the 1960’s, with our client in ownership since 2010. The business has become well known during that time, with a great reputation and has firmly established itself within the local community.


Location


Shorrock Lane is located close to Mill Hill and Ewood. This area is densely populated, with local schools, medical centre and supermarkets close by. Free roadside parking is available directly outside the shop.


Reason for sale


The business is only being offered for sale due to the ill health of family members. Our client was forced to close the shop on Friday, 24th March 2017, after a period of reduced opening hours in recent months.


Lease


The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of commercial property lease. The current lease is 6 years with rent reviews every 3 years. The current lease began in 2016 at a cost of £135 per week.


Building layout and design


The business is housed within a single fronted, terraced property within a row of residential properties. The shop has a traditional appearance with clear and bold branding and signage on display. Inside, the newly renovated customer servery area is very well presented, with stainless steel servery including display ovens and menu board to the rear. The fixtures and fittings are all of a high quality and have been well maintained. To the rear is a preparation room that is fully equipped and well presented – a full inventory is available by request. On the first floor of the property, there area two large rooms and a bathroom – this area is currently used for storage but could be converted into accommodation with use of the kitchen on the ground floor. Outside, there is an outbuilding and additional WC to the rear of the property, within an enclosed yard area.


Staff


The business has no staff in employment currently.


Financial details


Financial details are available upon a viewing of the business and the business has traded solidly over its trading history. The business generated weekly takings of between £600 and £700 on reduced opening hours, there is much scope for expansion and growth for this business, longer opening hours and introduction of additional menu options would be of use. The business would also benefit from an online presence and potentially, partnerships with online retailers such as JustEat and HungryHouse. All customers were from the local area as one would expect.


Summary


This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a newly refurbished, immaculately presented fish and chip shop with outstanding facilities in this popular area of Blackburn. This business has only recently closed, and has a large and loyal customer base established over many years. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the foundations already in place. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £14,995.
