Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

DESCRIPTION
Fish 4 U is a well used traditional fish and chip shop occupying a prominent corner plot trading position in a densely populated area of Rochford, Essex. The shop is amongst other independent retailers who benefit from a weekly Tuesday market, thus making the area busy throughout the day with high levels of regular local trade, general and passing footfall.

Having successfully traded from the same spot for many years and under the same ownership since 2013, the business has earned a good reputation within the area and therefore enjoys a loyal customer base, attracting repeat trade from the immediate vicinity, as well as neighbouring areas.

The business is only being offered for sale due to our client's wish to concentrate on their other business interests.

The business operates from a deceptively spacious property, which occupies a commanding high street position approx. half way through the one-way system, which benefits from free parking and 9 pubs which serve the area. The premises are presented to a good standard providing a welcoming feel in the main customer area.

Fish 4 U comes with a comprehensive range of well cared for catering equipment, which includes a well maintained two pan fryer. The business would therefore ideally suit an ambitious and energetic family to move the business on to the next level, whilst maximizing profits by introducing additional items to the menu such as pizza's and kebab's and by also offering a delivery service given the lack of competition locally.

WEEKLY SALES
Currently weekly sales average 2,755 based on limited trading hours through choice.

ACCOUNTS
Current records and accounts can be inspected when viewing.

TRADING HOURS
Monday - Saturday 11:30 - 14:30 and 16:30 - 21:00
Tuesday & Friday extended until 15:30
Closed Sunday and Bank Holidays

STAFF
The business is currently run under management along with additional part time members of staff, although the business would ideally suit a fully hands on operator to maximize profits.

PROPERTY
Fish 4 U occupies a deceptively spacious property which occupies a commanding corner plot position on the main high street thoroughfare. The shop is highly visible with good signage, with a large glass frontage.

TRADING AREA
The light and airy customer area is presented to a good standard throughout and provides a welcoming feel along with a two pan fryer, a single till serving counter with roll edge work top, a tiled floor, fully tiled walls and a drinks fridge.

PREP / STAFF AREA
There is a rear storage and prep area with a small office, twin stainless sinks, a commercial fridge and two double pizza ovens, which under the current ownership haven't been used.

In our opinion and given the size of the rear prep area, any new owner would be advised to offer pizza's as part of the main everyday menu in order to increase income and make use of the cooking facilities and prep stations which are included within the sale price.

A staff WC is also available with tiled walls and floor.

2 pan fryer in an excellent condition and serviced regularly

RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION

We are advised that the business is held on a new 10 year lease which commenced in September 2013. The rent is 2,750 per quarter inclusive (correct as advised on 23.03.16). Rent reviews are at 3 yearly intervals.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.

SUMMARY
An ideal opportunity to acquire this well used traditional fish and chip shop situated in a densely populated residential location, which would ideally suit a hands on operator to take this business to the next level.

A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the area in general, business opportunity and genuine future potential.
