Jit's Plaice occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the vibrant city of Preston in Lancashire. The business is surrounded by a mix of residential and commercial properties, from which the business derives much of its trade. The business is situated on Ripon street and benefits from a good volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as on-street parking facilities directly outside the property.

Preston is a modern and vibrant city undergoing massive redevelopment. According to the 2011 census, the city had a residential population of 122,719. Preston has become a regional shopping centre for Northwest England, with huge regeneration in the town centre planned. It has the 6th largest university in the country. In 2002, Preston was granted city status by Her Majesty the Queen, making it the 50th city in England.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Preston railway station is approximately 1 miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A6, A5085 and A59 all being within easy driving distance, which link to the national A-road and motorway networks. Blackburn is approximately 10 miles away and Blackpool is 16 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular fish & chip shop and Indian takeaway business, which is ideally located within the city of Preston, Lancashire.

The business was originally established as a fish & chip shop over 50 years ago and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2013. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to concentrate on other interests. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 63,200 with a gross profit of approximately 66% as per 2017 accounts.

Our client offers a variety of traditional fayre including fish & chips, burgers, pies, sausages, children's meals and sandwiches, as well as a range of Indian dishes, including curries, samosas, pakora's and set meals. The property boasts approximately 36 sq. metres of floor space, is well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality and freshness of the food 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 high quality food offered. The business is already being promoted on the popular social media website Facebook, but would benefit from the launch of a business website, which could incorporate online ordering facilities.

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