Reputable Restaurant For Sale
Please quote reference B06504
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and performing burger restaurant franchise. The business has built up an excellent reputation, along with a strong and consistent brand. Only now has the business been placed on the open market as it’s our client's desire to concentrate on his other store.
Meat in the Middle Ayr, has been operating under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for just over a year, and has grown the business to an impressive level with turnover levels growing steadily.
The business offers quality fayre, including their signature burger meals, hot dogs, sides and desserts, with the business building up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade along with regular online ordering via the main platforms.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, along with the introduction of take away coffee business during the day.
A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent produce on offer, and perhaps offer a specialist outside catering service for events.
This is an outstanding, well run “turn key lifestyle” business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.
