- FISH AND CHIP SHOP
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market St Marys Chippy. This immaculately presented business
has been established since the 1960's and owned by our client for some ten years and remains a popular take away for both locals and visitors alike.
As well as serving traditional fish and chips the business also offers an extensive menu including fishcakes, scampi, tinned roe, a range of burgers, kebabs, chicken dishes, cold drinks and a selection of pies. The business is maintained and fitted to a very high standard with a clean and modern appearance.
This profitable business offers further potential to expand perhaps by extending opening hours to include Sunday trade or joining one of the many on-line take away websites offering a delivery service to the area, additional food lines could then be introduced therefore increasing profit and subsequent turnover.
We would highly recommend viewing to fully appreciate the prime trading location and truly appreciate the high standard of this well presented business.
