Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market an opportunity to acquire a thriving and long-standing sandwich bar and hot food take away with an enviable reputation, within the Gorgie area of Edinburgh.

The Rite Bite has been trading for some 25 years and has been under ownership of our client for the last 2 years. It is only now that the business is on the open market for sale as our client looks to take retirement.

There is plenty of scope to further increase turnover by perhaps undertaking expansion of the events catering side of the business for private parties, functions and potential corporate clients. Late-night opening for 2 nights a week could also be considered.
