The business is offered for sale as a new highly favourable 10 year Private FRI Lease Agreement.

1. The asking premium will be 25,000.

The current owners purchased the business in 2009 and have established a solid trading foundation from loyal local trade. The business is being marketed for sale so that the current owner can enjoy their retirement.

In our opinion, profits could be increased if the business were purchased by an enthusiastic 'hands-on' couple thereby reducing manager and staff costs accordingly. There is also potential to develop catering facilities and a food offering which could increase turnover and profits.

Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
