LOCATION
Chip Off The Old Block is a fabulous fish and chip shop in the country village of Billinghay, Lincolnshire. Billinghay is a small village location with a population of around 2500.

The business is surrounded by houses and benefits from parking at the front of the property. Down the road is a pub and across the road is a car dealership and garage. We are advised that there are plans for an additional 170 new dwellings within the village.

The closest bus stop is a minute walk down the road, and heads in to Sleaford or in the other direction Blankney Barff. Lincolnshire city centre is a 25 minute drive away from the shop via A153.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Chip Off The Old Block. This small fish and chip shop with large owner's accommodation, has been established since 2003 when our client took ownership.

Our client is now looking to sell the business due to a well-deserved retirement. The owner has worked hard to build up the business and generates an advised turnover of around 73,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 50% as of 2015 accounts.

The chippy has an excellent reputation in the area, and has a very large amount of loyal customers with no competition within the area. Selling all the traditional fish and chip shop products, and also kebabs and pizza to take away. The business could increase revenue by offering a delivery service, to the surrounding area.

The business comes with a very large owner's accommodation, and comes with a substantial outer building which is suitable for development. The property is fitted with a Bio Mass Boiler which runs off waste pallets, and there is a storage area for the timber.

The opening hours for the business could be increased a lot, to attract more customers and boost takings. The property is large and the business could benefit from one of the rooms to be converted into a restaurant area.

In the area is a new housing development, of 170 new homes. This will increase the footfall in the area, and the business should benefit from an increase in customers. There is also a development across the road from the business.

This business is perfect for a family, with the large accommodation, and could benefit from the school close by. I highly advise early viewing to fully appreciate the extent of what's included in the sale.
