This would make an invaluable proposition for a first-time buyer, or a lucrative addition to an individual already working within the restaurant industry. The business is now for sale on a leasehold basis.
The authentic restaurant is placed in an end-terrace, parade position and is entered from the square. The well-furnished, contemporary premises is set on the ground level, with 70 covers. Through the entrance, there is a reasonably sized reception area with soft furnishings and a bar behind on the right. Further along, the premises is the kitchen, store and preparation area. The main restaurant has an elevated level and a ground floor space and also on this floor are toilets for both men and women.
All equipment is included in the sale which includes a number of fridges, freezers, counters, all kitchen equipment, to include cookers, microwaves and the grill etc.
Established in 2004, the business has gone from strength to strength due to its excellent location and its high standards of produce. This is an ideal platform for an existing business or owner-operator looking to function from this geographical location.
Through extended opening hours and days, the restaurant could cater for more customers on a weekly basis. The possibility of introducing a home delivery and external catering service is also feasible and would allow it to cater for customers further afield as well as to local businesses, offices, parties etc. The restaurant offers takeaways but does not deliver or use any of the delivery agents so there is massive potential to increase revenue through this. Increased marketing through creating a website and social media would also boost exposure to its services and enable the business to grow its customer base through online promotion.
The current owner is also willing to stay on for a transitional period if needed.
