Tenure: Leasehold

Chorley Fried Chicken occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the market town of Chorley in Lancashire. The business is situated on the very busy Market Street and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from parking facilities to the front of the premises.

Chorley is a popular market town in Lancashire and is the largest settlement in the Borough of Chorley. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 34,667. Chorley is a popular place in which to live and work, due to its proximity to the major cities of Preston and Manchester.

The area of the business is very well-served by the public transport system, with several bus stops and the main bus station being within easy walking distance of the property. Chorley railway station is also less than five minutes' walk away. The area is also well-served by the A-roads, with the A6 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Preston is approximately 12 miles away, Blackburn is 10 miles away and Manchester is 28 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular takeaway business, which is ideally located in Chorley town centre, Lancashire.

There has been a takeaway of this site for approximately 20 years and Chorley Fried Chicken was established in 2012. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's other interests. The business operates 7 days per week and according to the accounts ending August 2014 it generates a turnover in the region of 48,700 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 74%.

Our client offers a wide variety of takeaway food including fresh pizza's, garlic breads, calzones, burgers, fried chicken, kebabs and chips, to name a few, as well as a section of desserts and beverages. The property boasts a large service area and a good size fully equipped kitchen to the ground floor. The first floor was originally a two room flat, which is now just used for storage, but could easily be reconverted as owners' accommodation, should a new owner desire.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered. The business would also benefit from a website to advertise the business and excellent food available.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
