Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a long established and well known fish & chip takeaway/café, which is situated in the bustling town of Eccles in Greater Manchester.

Mario’s Fish Bar and Restaurant occupies a prime trading position at the heart of the bustling town centre, opposite the Metrolink station and Morrisons supermarket and is amongst numerous multiple and high street retailers including Wilkinsons. The town’s car parks are all in the vicinity.

As you would expect, the area is a hive of activity and the business therefore attracts high levels of both regular local and passing trade from the large number of shoppers and workers, who frequent the town on a daily basis.

Mario’s Fish Bar and Restaurant was originally established in the town back in 1960 and over the years the business has established an extensive and loyal customer base, quite literally going back generations. The business has also been used as a filming location for numerous television programmes, with many high profile actors having visited the shop in recent times.

Mario’s Fish Bar and Restaurant is in essence two successful businesses, operating under one roof with a traditional fish and chip takeaway and a self contained 40 cover café serving breakfasts, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, toasties and both hot and cold drinks.

The business operates from a highly visible double fronted lock up shop premises, which are well fitted with a range of good quality catering equipment.

This is a thriving and highly lucrative business, yet operates only 6 days of the week and therefore represents an ideal investment for an ambitious husband and wife team, who can extend the opening times with the potential to also introduce a local delivery service.

This will naturally increase the weekly sales, whilst enabling additional staffing levels to be kept to a minimum, therefore enhancing overall profitability.

To fully appreciate this excellent business opportuni

Currently shop sales average £3,000 approximately. The vendor has advised us that there is a guaranteed £700 profit per week.

Current records and accounts can be inspected when viewing.

Monday — Saturday 09:00 — 17:00

The business is managed by the owners with 5 part time members of staff.

Building External
The highly visible and imposing double fronted shop premises offers a deceptively spacious and versatile ground floor lock up business accommodation.

The welcoming dining area is bright and airy with seating for up to 40 people. The business is fitted to a high standard with a good range of quality catering equipment, which has been well maintained.

To the rear of the property there is a preparation kitchen, a potato room, a staff toilet and ample storage.

The vendor has partitioned a section of the dining area which is sub let to a third party for £100 per week, however we understand this agreement can be ceased by either party giving 3 months’ notice.

The takeaway is independent from the café with a separate entrance with a sales area housing a 3 pan gas counter range and modern equipment. Externally there is seating for 12 people which is ideal for al-fresco dining during the warmer months.

There is no residential accommodation for owners/management available.

We are advised that the property is held on a 10 year lease which commenced in 2014. The annual rent is £17,600 exclusive (correct as advised on 01/06/16). Rent reviews are at 3 yearly intervals.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a successful and a lucrative business with genuine potential for future growth. To avoid disappointment, a viewing is recommended.
