Business Description

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this established Award Winning Traditional Fish & Chip Shop/Restaurant concern which is located in Indian Queens, St Columb Cornwall. The business has been established for 70 years and has been in the careful hands of the current owners for the last 8 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale so that my clients can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and requires the help of 4 full time and 12 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of 734,560 with a GP of 448,875 and boasts a very healthy net profit of 243,191. All food is freshly cooked to order and they serve a fine selection of traditional fish & chips (cooked in beef dripping) and are fully licensed. All this can be enjoyed in their spacious restaurant that oozes a real family welcome. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by extending the current opening times and opening on Sundays should you wish. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and can cater for large groups, coach parties and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many passing tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established and highly profitable business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
