Sandwich Shops for Sale

What’s your sandwich go-to? A classic BLT? A tomato and mozzarella panini? Maybe a simple ham and cheese butty? Could it even be a posh niçoise on an artisanal baguette? According to the British Sandwich Association (BSA), more than 11.5 billion sandwiches are consumed every year. And whichever form it’s in, a sandwich is by far the most popular lunch-time staple. In fact, 41% of people say that a sandwich is their standard lunchtime option compared to only 12% who would opt for a salad.

So, whether it’s a franchise or an independent store, a sandwich shop can provide the perfect opportunity for new entrepreneurs looking to start a business. And when buying an existing sandwich shop, you have the additional advantage of buying into an established brand. You may also save on the cost of buying the necessary start-up equipment and appliances.

A sandwich shop is easily one of the most affordable and profitable businesses for first-time entrepreneurs. That’s because the start-up costs are some of the lowest for new businesses. Investors are also more willing to back up a sandwich shop – especially those belonging to franchises – due to their tried-and-true tested business model. 

If you’re unsure where to start, the Hilton Smythe guide to the 5 things to consider when buying a sandwich shop can help you on your way. Once you’re ready, be sure to check out our complete listings of UK sandwich shops for sale.
