Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a long established and well known traditional fish and chip take away/restaurant, which is located within the bustling town of Wigan in Greater Manchester.

Market Street Fish & Chips occupies a prime trading position at the very heart of the town centre, amongst an abundance of major high street retailers and banks with the local college within a short walking distance.

As you would expect, the area is a hive of activity from the large number of shoppers, workers and students who frequent the town on a daily basis, ensuring the business attracts high levels of regular, local and passing trade.

Market Street Fish & Chips has successfully operated within the town for many years and during that time the business has established a truly enviable reputation for offering the finest fresh cuisine with a warm, friendly service. The business therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

The business operates from a highly visible double fronted three storey property, offering an unusually spacious business accommodation which is well presented throughout, creating a welcoming environment.

Market Street Fish & Chips is a successful and highly lucrative business, yet operates on just 6 short openings only and therefore offers fantastic scope for future growth and development. With this in mind, the business represents an ideal investment for an ambitious family unit, who can extend the opening times to capture the busy evening trade, with the opportunity to also introduce a wider menu. This will significantly increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.

This first class business opportunity is only now being offered for sale due to retirement and a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Currently shop sales average £2,500 approximately.
