Full description

DESCRIPTION
Reid's is a single storey building with a significant footprint, located within the town centre of Thurso in a busy area with business, hospitality and residential units close by. Trading as a fish and chip shop for many years, the business is well established and offers the usual range of hot takeaway products, drinks and confectionary. Trading only as a takeaway there is most certainly scope to introduce a sit in facility.

The takeaway is fully fitted out and all fixtures and fittings are included in the price. A full inventory will be provided to seriously interested parties. The business is currently run under management, employing 1 full-time, 1 part-time staff member as well as some seasonal and casual staff as required. There is no doubt that hands on owners would be able to increase profitability by reducing the number of staff required. Opening Hours are Monday to Saturday, 12noon - 2pm and 4pm - 8pm.

There are a number of distinct service areas which include male and female changing facilities. The fish and chip shop is contained within a much larger property which may be available by separate negotiation. Please contact the selling agents for further information. It is possible to utilise the premises for a number of differing uses. All development aspects will be subject to renovation and obtaining the necessary consents. Internal layout plans are available upon request to ASG Commercial.

LOCATION
This property is located in Thurso town and close to Scrabster Harbour where the fish markets are positioned. This area of Northern Scotland benefits from having some of the best fish, beef and lamb in the world and Reid's is ideally placed to take advantage of this. The restaurant has a most prominent frontage making it ideal for passing trade with two large picture windows facing on to the street, plus more than ample parking in the surrounding area.

The town has a good mix of traditional shops, cafes, bars, guest houses and hotels. The well-known River Thurso flows through the town attracting salmon fishers from all over. The area is also well known for surfing, hosting surfing championships, as well as offering various other outdoor pursuits. There are lots of things to do and see in Thurso, including the five star visitor attraction, Caithness Horizons and many other places of interest, including an attractive sandy beach with spectacular views across to Orkney and Dunnet Head. There are many attractions which bring visitors to Caithness, such as a day trip to Orkney, numerous sites of archaeological interest, the Castle of Mey to the north, Dunrobin Castle to the south or perhaps a day out to John O'Groats.

SERVICES
The business benefits from 3-phase mains electricity, gas, water supply and drainage.
