Established in 1929, an exciting opportunity has emerged to purchase a famed traditional fish and chip shop base in Cumbria.
Once written about by Alfred Wainwright in Coast to Coast the shop falls on the trail the author indeed wrote about in the book and this very fish and chips shop is featured within it.
The traditional chippy has appeared on television twice and is steeped in history due to its long heritage and extensive establishment.
The business currently operates as a local dine in or takeaway, serving traditional fish and chips as well as other national favourites such as kebabs, pizzas, lasagnes, pies, burgers and baked potatoes. As well as serving up some sweet local treats and puddings.
For sale is a fully fitted eatery, with a customer facing frying area. On display are the kitchen facilities along with the food that is served fresh. Included in the equipment is the fryer, pizza oven as well as a secondary kitchen and walk in freezer. There is a dining room and onwards there is a staff toilet and shower. There is a three-bedroom flat with one en-suit above which provides ample living accommodation for a new buyer. There is also an office, which has potential to be converted into a fourth bedroom.
This business is synonymous with tourists and rural walkers participating in the famous coast to coast walk. The prestigious author of this famed walk (Mr Alfred Wainwright) being the chip shops most-esteemed patron.
Intelligent Business Transfer are thrilled to offer for sale a reputable, high quality Fish and Chip takeaway and eatery, favoured by customers for its range of popular menu selections, low prices, and warm customer service. The business has a great reputation and is established as a well-known fixture in the village.
Over the years, the current vendor has deliberately opened the business on a part time basis. Opening for only 4 days a week, and closing all of January. Opening the business on a full-time basis, for longer hours would therefore increase the profits and turnover.
Despite having an informative website, renovating the site with a more modern design would give a slicker feel and would make its online presence that bit more approachable.
Intelligent Business Transfer have been approached to find a suitable buyer who will look to grow the business further. The owner is willing to stay on at the business, for a transitional period of 2 weeks, to show the new owner how the business operates.
The buyer has the option to purchase the property, lease shop as well as rent the house.
