Traditional Fish and Chip Shop Trading for Over 60 Years
Woodford Green, Essex
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a very well established fish and chip business, established in this area over 60 years ago. Seafarers has been priced to sell quickly due to other business interests of our client and we strongly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The large shop comes with the benefit of having lots of additional storerooms to the first floor included in the lease. We are also informed the business benefits from full small business relief paying 0 rates in the current year.
The business is led by fish and chip sales followed by kebabs & burgers. The menu includes pies, burgers, roast chicken, wraps, sides and cold drinks. Our client also offers a telephone order and collection service with a senior citizens offer on a Wednesday.
Larger fish orders, party orders and catering can be arranged in addition to the normal trading times with prior arrangement.
Our client attracts a healthy mix of local residents, tradesmen and builders, local business people and school children.

- Extend the opening hours
- Add more delivery partners to increase later trading potential
- Add pizza, per peri chicken more kebab choices to the menu
- Re model the rear kitchen area to allow for a larger menu and outside catering
- Add new website, Facebook and social media presence
