Tenure: Leasehold

Sandwich Express is located on Lytham Road, Blackpool.

The business is surrounded by a wealth of homes, shops, schools, and businesses and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property.

There are several railway and tram stations nearby. Also, there's a main bus link to and from surrounding towns.

The area is also well served by the A-roads within easy driving distance of the business, which link to the M55 motorway network.

Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Sandwich Express, a newly refurbished, well presented sandwich shop with a 2 bed house attached.

Sandwich Express has always been a successful eating establishment; due to its prime location it has ample options available. Our client took over the business, completed a full refurbishment and has been open since the end of 2017, he is now looking to pursue an opportunity in Spain.

There is scope to improve turnover such as pushing the outside catering side, using social media, advertising and leaflet dropping. Our client has advised he is looking into putting in a pizza oven and extending the opening hours as there is plenty of scope for takeaway food. To add to the turnover there is options to offer a delivery service and use JustEat, Hungry House etc.

To the rear of the shop is the large 2 bed house, with garage, yard and large basement. This is a real benefit to the business as this would make a great family home for the purchaser. We feel the shop would suit a husband and wife team and the house is big enough for a family.

There is also the potential to split the business off from the house as they both have their own entrances; and would be suitable to rent them out separately, the electricity is already split.

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to live in the area and get into the trade. Early viewing is highly recommended.
