Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Goodfellas which is a well-established Takeaway and Restaurant 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.
Goodfellas was founded by the current owner approximately two years ago when he identified a gap in the market. The business has been a real labour of love for him and has flourished under his ownership already having an impressive number of regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.
A considerable amount of money has been spent ensuring that this is arguably one of the nicest types of this business in the area.
Alas the business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy heart only due to the vendors wish to open a larger version of this shop in another area, he is keen to see his beloved takeaway/ restaurant pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
Goodfellas offers an extensive range of food that is freshly prepared to order, on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible. Customers can eat in the restaurant, collect their orders of have their food delivered.
The extensive menu includes;
- All Day Breakfasts
- Goodfellas Wraps
- Southern Fried Chicken
- Chicken Boxes
- Saver Menu
- Chicken Wings
- Kids meals
