Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Chandos Fish Bar. The business was originally established in 2014 by our client. All equipment was bought brand new and so all equipment is reasonably new. The owners are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests. The business runs as a high quality fish and chip shop selling traditional products. They sell a range of fish, fish cakes, sausage in batter, children’s meals and tasty pies. There is the option to expand the menu further, by introducing foods such as burgers and maybe kebabs. The premise is well-presented and stands out from its competition. The current turnover for the business is around £67,000 per annum with a gross profit of 20% as of the 2016 accounts. This is a healthy turnover that could be increased. The new owner could look to open longer hours to take advantage of trade from the many local pubs. There is flexibility for the hours, and this should be something the purchaser looks into. However, if extending hours is not an option; reducing staff will affect the overall gross profit. Our clients own other businesses and are unable to work at the chippy full time. The £25,000 wage bills could be massively decrease with a new hands on purchaser. This is a fantastic opportunity for a husband and wife team looking for a busy business. The chippy is the main one in this location and so has huge potential to boost trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of this exceptional business.
