The Lunch Box is located in Preston, Lancashire.

Ideally located just outside the town centre, the business is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses. On this retail parade is a hair salon, firework shop, bicycle store, fish and chip shop, electrical appliance store and many more. This area is benefited by a high amount of passing trade from the great road connections. Behind the property is a car park making it easier for people to call in the stores.

The business is located on a busy main cross road. These roads consist of 2 main A roads the A583 and A5072 which run off connecting to the national motorways and Preston town centre. There are many public transport links around the area. Just a short walk from the premise are several bus stops with regular routes daily. The closest train station is Preston which is around 1.6 mile away, this is an easy journey using the great road.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market The Lunch Box. This sandwich shop is very popular in the area, and receives a lot of custom from passing trade.

Originally established in 1995 the sandwich shop is well known and generates great profits. Our client first took over the shop in 2012 but is now looking to sell the business due to relocation.

The business runs as a sandwich shop and takeaway. The business also offers a delivery service, to business around the area. We are advised the business offers outside catering and have managed to secure several verbal contracts, supplying to local companies and their events.

The business has a website this promotes the outside catering side of the business and has menus and create your own buffet option. The website is included in the price.

The current advised turnover for the business is around 65,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 80%. This is fantastic with a generous gross profit. We believe the turnover could be increased further by extending the outside catering service. By confirming more contracts with local pubs and hotels etc, there is a more guaranteed source of income. This could be something the new owner looks into.

The Lunch Box has a fantastic menu with a range of choice. They sell breakfasts, paninis, jacket potatos, sandwiches and hot meals such as curry, hot pot and lasagne. They offer great daily specials at low affordable prices.

This is a brilliant opportunity for a buyer looking for a fully fitted business. We highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
