Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market one of North Yorkshires finest restaurant/takeaway opportunities. The well-established business began trading in 2015 and due to its continuous success moved to new larger premises in September 2019.
The business comes with a very loyal customer base who enjoy the friendly service and excellent quality food produced by their Thai chefs. TripAdvisor rated the restaurant as one of the top restaurants to visit in York with a 5-star customer review score!
We believe the ‘Turn-key’ opportunity will allow any new owner the ability to walk straight in and continue trading as well as potentially capitalise on the strong brand image by franchising the business model.
The new unit has undergone a complete refurbishment which has included new phaze 3 electrics, new decor and new equipment throughout. Our client has invested in the region of £180,000 in the physical transformation alone which includes a very large commercial kitchen, capable of taking on very high volumes of both restaurant and takeaway orders.
Before Covid the business gentereated weekly sales betweem £10,000-£12,000, there is potential to better those takings by opening over the Christmas period and extending the opening hours, plus opening for 6/7 days a week.
There is a 50-cover capacity set over two floors. There is a bar which offers beers, a full choice of spirits and wines.
The restaurant is now being offered for sale due to our clients' other business interests, the restaurant is currently closed Sunday and Mondays.
This can be ran as a family business with plenty of time off or as an investment where profits could be maximised with extended opening hours.. We think with the set up and location this could easily be converted to may other food types and be very successful.
There is a wide range of tasty Thai dishes.
There is a restaurant menu and takeaway menu available to view on their website.
Our client advises due to the Covid pandemic, the sales have been mainly derived from takeaway orders, with a 70% takeaway, 30% sit in sales ratio. However, as the area gets back to normality we expect to see restaurant sales to significantly increase.
