Full description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Sea Salt Fish and Chips, an impeccably presented business which underwent a complete transformation in the last year which included new equipment and decoration throughout.


The decision to now sell is genuinely driven by poor health reasons which is preventing our client further developing this much-loved community business.


The ‘Turnkey’ business also comes with the bonus of having a separate spacious 2 bedroomed owners accommodation arranged on the first floor (available on a separate lease agreement).


Our clients experience of this industry is clear to see in the arrangement of the equipment and preparation areas and we rarely see a Fish and Chips business of this standard come into the open market in this affluent area, so strongly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.


The business is driven by walk in customers wanting a traditional Fish and Chips menu with 80% of sales taken from fish orders. Our client advises any new owner would benefit from


increasing the types of fish including offering a grilled fish menu.


Our client uses one of the best fish suppliers which sources its fish from Hull/ Grimsby.


The current menu includes -


Cod, Haddock, Plaice, Huss, Scampi, Cod Roe, Lemon Sole, Fish Cakes and Cod Bites


Sausage, Battered Sausages and Saveloys


Pies, Burgers, Kebabs, Side Orders


Stuffed Mozzarella balls, smoked cheddar balls and oak smoked cheddar balls


chicken Nuggets, wraps, and Wings


Kids meals, chicken feats deals, lunchtime offers and senior citizen meal deals


Due to the health of our client, currently no deliveries are taken, adding any of the well-known delivery partners such as Just Eat would easily increase sales by a further 40%.


Increasing the fried chicken menu as well as adding pizzas would increase sales as well as extending the current opening hours including opening Sunday’s.


Any new buyer would benefit from adding a new website, social media presence and adopting some new local advertising to the many new homes being built. Adding a corporate / business customer base could quickly increase the outside catering opportunity currently not being used.
