Tenure: Leasehold

Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer to the market this well-appointed takeaway shop which was purchased by our clients over 2 years ago. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to other business commitments. During their tenure they have established a great reputation for its wide selection of quality food and drinks, whilst also offering traditional South African cuisine. The business has great support from local residents, with many students also buying their lunch & breakfast here on a regular basis. Any new buyers will certainly be purchasing a successful set-up in a great area, with low overheads also adding to the appeal of this sale. The business also trades with the benefit of a full class 3 consent cooking license.

The Zulu Lounge is situated in Edinburgh’s affluent Morningside area on the main thoroughfare. The area is a popular place for both students and shoppers, due to its large university campus and wide selection of small businesses. There is also a strong residential presence with many of Edinburgh’s most prestigious and expensive addresses in this area. Edinburgh’s City Centre is only a 20 minute stroll from the business, with links to the Edinburgh city bypass and M8 motorway only a 15 minute drive away.
