Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Ansley Fish Bar which is a well-established Fish and chip shop with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
Ansley Fish Bar was established over 50 years ago and the current owners have run it successfully and lucratively for the last 33 years. The business has been a real labour of love for them and has many regular customers and a fantastic reputation. Alas the business is now to be sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only so that the vendors can enjoy a well-earned retirement. They are keen to see their beloved fish and chip shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
Ansley Fish Bar is a traditional fish and chip shop offering an extensive menu with food offering being freshly prepared on the premises which also offers substantial and beautifully presented loving accommodation.
Scope to Improve:
- Advertising and marketing campaign, a leaflet drop always yields good results
- Maximise the use of social media particularly Twitter and Facebook
- Websites, ideally with an online ordering facility
- Explore online delivery options from the likes of Hungry House and Just Eat
- Extend the opening hours
- Re-introduce curries that proved extremely popular previously.
Reasons to Buy:
- A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many regular customers
- Prime trading position on a busy main road
- Current owners happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
- Includes lovely and substantial living accommodation
- Plans have been passed for the construction of circa 400 residential new homes which will increase turnover significantly
- The business is proud of its 5 Star hygiene rating
- Little or no competition locally
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
