BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Chip Basket. The business was originally established in the 1970's and was taken over by our client in 2011. This is a well-established business that sees loyal repeat trade. The owner is now looking to sell the chip shop due to the desire to relocate to America.

The business runs as a busy seaside fish and chip shop offering a traditional menu. The chippy also offers extras such as burgers, Cornish pasties, pineapple fritters, onion rings and much more. These extras on the menu have proved to be very popular. The menu could be expanded by the purchaser if required.

We are advised the business is currently generating an advised turnover of around 65,000 per annum with a gross profit of 70%. This is a great turnover that could be increased. There are several options the new owner could look into, such as opening later hours (including opening Sundays), offer lunch time specials and also by offering their services on JustEat. This site is increasing in popularity and should be something the new owner considers.

We are advised that this is an unopposed fish and chip shop making this a fantastic business opportunity. The premise also boasts very low rent, which allows for a high gross profit figure. Our client has spent money on improving the property by adding new tiled flooring, adding new phone lines and installing hand washing facilities. The property is also under going some renovation. Above the property are four new one bedroomed apartments, this should also allow for more custom.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a purchaser looking for a first time purchase in a thriving location. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing in order to take in the full potential.
