Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) a long standing and exceptionally well-run traditional fish and chip shop business.
The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for over 30 years, building up an excellent reputation. The business has only now come to the open market as our client wishes to leave the industry after many successful years of trading, and who would like to see the business pass to someone with the same drive and enthusiasm to take the business forward.
The Frying Scotsman operates from an immaculately presented traditional takeaway shop, with the business having undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment some years ago and is presented in a superb “turn-key” condition.
The business prides itself on delivering the highest quality food cooked fresh to order, along with an exceptional level of customer service. The business uses freshly sourced produce adding to the overall customer experience with the business recently introducing its own online click and collect service via an app, which has helped to increase the turnover for the business.
There is scope to further increase the already impressive level of turnover with the introduction of revised opening hours, and further promotion of the website and app.
This outstanding turnkey business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry.
