LOCATION
Kendal is renowned as the 'Gateway to the Lakes', a bustling town on the edge of the Lake District with a huge tourist influx each year. This chip shop sits on the highly visible, arterial Stramongate road. This historically is the means in town from one side of the River Kent, over one of the four town centre bridges - Stramongate bridge - into the high street shopping area. It therefore benefits from high footfall as many residents' route into and out of town, but also with plentiful residential properties neighbouring, flats and houses. It also benefits from road space for cars to put down and pick up immediately to the front, allowing collection of takeaway meals.


DESCRIPTION
An opportunity to acquire this well-located, busy fish and chip shop business. This chip shop has been established for well over 60 years and has been owned and run by our client since 2003. Well-renowned locally and immaculately presented, it serves traditional fish and chips, pies, burgers, sausages, drinks etc.. The owner is now looking to retire.

The business is run 6 days per week as a family concern, and reports, on latest available figures, a turnover of 115,427 per annum, with a gross profit at 64%. Lunchtime opening hours are Mon-Sat 11.30am to 1.30pm; Evenings are Mon-Wed 5.0pm to 8.0pm, Thurs 5.0pm to 10.0pm, Fri 4.30pm to 10.0pm and Sat 4.30pm to 9.0pm. There is therefore some scope for further opening hours, in particular to 9.30pm Mon-Wed in the summer months has been considered. New food lines such as pizzas and kebabs would further increase turnover, and though no delivery is now offered, we are advised by the owners of former excellent lunchtime demand for this locally.

The business has a 5 Star Food Hygiene rating, and currently rates 4.5 out of 5 stars with 24 reviews on TripAdvisor, with outstanding feedback on service and quality of ingredients.

The premises are held on a secure commercial lease, at a sensible rent for a remaining 7+ years. The chip shop owner has an excellent relationship with their landlord, who formerly ran the chip shop themselves for many years and so fully understands the business.

The premises are a single-fronted full-width window shop with good signage, with large ordering, counter and service areas, rear kitchen off, vestibule and staff WC, plus a separate preparation and storage building to the rear.
