Very Popular Fish & Chip Shop in Upwell, Cambridgeshire For Sale
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy fish & chip shop in Upwell, near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. The business was established in 1966 and has been in our clients` ownership since 1978. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a very healthy turnover in the region of £120,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 60%. The turnover is derived from the sale of traditional fish and chips, pies, sausages etc. and the business benefits from two tables offering 8 covers and three stools, giving customers the choice to eat in or take away. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food available, as well as the excellent service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade. The business also receives regular weekly orders from a local caravan site. There is also a large room above the shop, which could easily be adapted as additional seating area/private party room, subject to planning permission. We feel the turnover could be further increased by extending the opening hours to open all day and later in the evening, as well as perhaps opening on Sunday and Monday. There is also scope to increase the range of food available. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further. The property benefits from 4 bedroom accommodation to the ground and first floor, which is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard and could be used by a new owner or let out to generate further income. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
