Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Betty’s Fish and Chips. This fish and chip shop restaurant was established by our client in 2012. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The business offers traditional fish and chip shop fayre, to take away or to eat in the 22-cover restaurant. Popular foods include, fish and chips, steak pies, pudding, sausage and a children’s menu with goujons and chips.
This high-quality fish and chip shop also offer an outside catering service, to provide unique meals for private functions. This is a great plus to the business and differs from competitors.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £168,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 64%. This is an exceptional turnover, with potential to be massively increased. Extending opening hours could make a huge difference to income. The business also has an alcohol licence, this would be perfect for restaurant dining in the evenings.
Betty’s Fish and Chips already has an envious amount of repeat loyal trade from locals that live in the area. Uppermill is an up and coming village of Saddleworth, becoming more and more popular with tourists. With the right advertising this business could further increase trade, especially in the warmer summer months with the use of the communal outside seating area.
The business already has a great online presence, with a regularly updated Facebook page and excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. The Facebook page has over 340 followers, this is a great cost effective way to market the chippy.
The fish and chip shop boasts a substantial sized property with potential for change. The first and second floor are currently used for storage. This space could be transformed into a two-bedroom owner’s accommodation, if required by our purchaser. However, there is also the option to expand the restaurant side of the business by introducing more seating. Offering a function room with separate bar could be something the purchaser considers.
This is an exceptionally run business that would be perfect for a husband and wife team or partnership. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
The business is run and managed by our client, with the help of one full time and three-part time members of staff.
The business opening hours: -
Monday - Saturday: 12pm – 2:30pm & 5pm – 8pm
