Hugely reduced from £130,000 for a quick sale due to relocation.
The business for sale is a traditional, high-street based fish and chip shop, which serves the Scunthorpe suburb of Ashby and delivers via JustEat and Deliveroo.
The business was originally established in 1986 and has grown steadily since its creation. The current owners took over in 2013 and have seen a remarkable response from the local community, gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base.
The business aims to bring the traditional taste of fish and chips to the Ashby area and to cater to all customer needs. They want to hear from their customers, to ensure everything is perfect.
The fish and chip shop has a successful website and Facebook page, which has almost 1,000 followers. This a testament to the company’s brilliant online presence and excellent customer service. The company has amassed hundreds of highly positive reviews on Just Eat, Deliveroo, Google, and Facebook. The company also has a 5-star hygiene rating.
The well-equipped and recently refurbished premises have an excellent location on Ashby high street, with nearby car parking and high footfall, which should ensure plenty of passing trade.
All equipment is included in the business sale, which means the new owner should be able to get to work straight away.
The well-equipped premises are located in a three-storey, end of terrace brick building, which is part of a parade of shops called Ashby Broadway and is made up of convenience stores, takeaways, and well-known high-street shops. The upper two storeys of the property are self-contained flats, which are not part of the business sale. Outside the shop, there are 2 metal tables, each with 4 chairs, which are under a covered area. The inside of the premises was refitted 3 years ago, including new frontage. Upon entry, there is an L-shaped steel serving counter and a customer area with side tables and 3 bar stools. There are microwaves and a till in the service area. To the rear of the property, there is an oven, fridges, and freezers. Further back, there is a toilet and a rear exit.
All equipment will transfer over with the business sale.
The current owners are happy to stay for the initial transitional period following the business takeover.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone with previous catering experience. However, this is not essential to successfully manage the business and someone without experience could learn to run the fish and chip shop.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as currently the business only opens 30 hours a week, shuts at 8.00 pm each night, and doesn’t open on Sundays. Extending opening hours could be a great way to attract further trade.
