Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular fish & chip shop, ideally located within the town of Bingley, West Yorkshire.
The business was originally established in 1995 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £73,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 48%.
Our client offers very high quality traditional fish & chips, fish cakes, scallops etc. The premises boasts a spacious customer service area and a large preparation area to the rear. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the fresh fayre offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is huge potential to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and service offered. We also feel there is potential to introduce new fayre such as pizza’s, kebabs, chicken etc.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to acquire a very busy and profitable concern; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
