Full description

Ainsworth Lord Estates are delighted to be offering for sale "SMOKIES" - "THE BEST RESTAURANT IN DARWEN" - RATED No1 ON TRIPADVISOR.

Situated in a prominent location on one of the busiest main roads in the County, with ample parking at the front and nearby, this established, TOP RATED, AWARD WINING RESTAURANT (with a 5* Food Hygiene Rating) is ready for a new owner to take it to the next level.

Currently with approx 30 covers (which means tables and seating for approx 30 people) there is ample scope to increase turnover and profits by expanding the business into the Take Away sector.

The style of cuisine currently offered is based on a bar-be-que theme with emphasis on southern smoked meats, which has been welcomed by locals and diners afar.

Turnover & Business Info:
This business has a great turnover with an excellent profit margin.
There is enormous scope to increase profits further by developing the take away part of the business, something the current owners have not done.
We have been advised the current turnover is approx £5k per week.
Trading 27 hours a week, with 1 Full Time Member of Staff (Owner) and 2 x part time staff.
We believe increasing the trading hours and developing the takeaway part of the business would significantly increase profits.

The current owners are willing to support the new owners with any training they need, the details of which will need to be finalised by both parties.
