Fish and Chips Shops for Sale - Hilton Smythe

Fish and Chips Shops for Sale

Who doesn’t love a chippy? Breaded or battered? With gravy or curry sauce? In a butty or in a newspaper cone? Whichever way it’s eaten, there’s no denying that everyone loves fish and chips. The numbers don’t lie – seven million portions of British classic are sold every week. In fact, it’s officially the UK’s number one takeaway. 

As a nation, we boast over 10,500 specialist fish and chip shops – a number that outclasses any major fast-food brand, including both McDonald’s and KFC. And having lots of competition can be a good thing for a small business. Hungry customers like options, and if your chippy is the best of the choices, that’s where they’ll spend their money and spread good word-of-mouth. So, if you’re looking for a new business opportunity, why not get in on this national pleasure and teatime favourite? 

Fish and Chips can also be fancy – if you want to take your chippy to culinary heights, then there’s even the National Fish & Chip Awards, which judges the country’s chippies on responsible sourcing, their menus, customer service, and quality.

Our listings will help you find your best matched fish and chip shop for sale. And when you buy an existing fish and chips business, you’ll be saving on the upfront cost of new cooking equipment. You’ll also be taking on an existing customer base, saving you time and money, that of which can be spent on running your business the way you want. 

Our wide range of shops cover locations all over the country, and come at varying price points, helping you find the perfect fish and chips business for sale.
