Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular fish and chip shop in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire.
The business was originally established as a fish & chip shop over 100 years ago. The concern has been in our clients’ careful ownership for the past 9½ years and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to take semi-retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and according to accounts ending March 2017, the fish & chip shop generates a turnover in the region of £57,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 68%.
Our clients offer a variety of traditional chip shop fayre including fish and chips, sausages, pies, burgers, onion rings and fritters, to name a few. The property has been maintained to a very high standard with a spacious waiting and service area, a large rear preparation room and owner’s dining room and kitchen to the ground floor, as well as a lounge, bathroom and three bedrooms to the first floor.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business. A new owner could also introduce a delivery service within the area or embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered. There is also scope to join popular websites such as Just Eat.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving fish and chip shop business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 2 x part time staff members.
The business is open:
Monday - Wednesday: Closed
Thursday: 11:30am – 1:30pm & 3:30pm – 7pm
Friday: 11.30am – 7.00pm
