BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular fish & chip shop business in Oldham, Greater Manchester.

The business was established over 70 years ago and has been in our clients' careful ownership since 2005. Only now is the business being offered to the market, due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 52,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 65%.

Our clients offer a traditional chip shop menu including fish & chips, pies, sausages, scallops and fish cakes, to name a few. The property boasts 73 sq. metres of floor space, with the main shop and service area to the ground floor. The first floor offers a one-bedroom flat, which could be used as owners' accommodation or let out to generate further income. The premises were renovated under the local improvement scheme, both internally and externally in 2007, to a very high standard.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. There is also scope to expand the range of products offered, such as pizza's and kebabs.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
