Tenure: Leasehold

The Alachi International Restaurant occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the town of Cradley Heath in the West Midlands. The business is surrounded by a mix of commercial and residential properties, from which the business derives much trade. The restaurant/takeaway benefits from good car parking facilities to the front and side of the premises, as well as a high volume of footfall and passing trade.

Cradley Heath is a small town in the Rowley Regis area of the Sandwell. According to the 2011 census, the Cradley Heath and Old Hill ward had a residential population of 13,565. As part of the Black Country, it is one of several towns in central England still recognisable from their early 20th century appearance. Many of the shops and houses in the High Street are still standing after 100 years.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Old Hill, which is approximately one mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the business being located just off the A4100 and A459, which link to the national A-road and motorway networks. Stourbridge is approximately 5 miles away and Birmingham is 10½ miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established Indian restaurant and takeaway business, which is ideally located within the town of Cradley Heath, West Midlands.

The business was established nearly 20 years ago and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2008. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business currently operates 7 evenings per week and generates an excellent turnover in the region of £286,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

The restaurant offers a wide range of freshly made food including a mix of starters, Tandoori dishes, Balti dishes, Massala dishes, Dopiaza dishes, Thawa specials, Biryani dishes and fish dishes, to name a few. The business offers a free home delivery service within a four-mile radius of the premises.

The property boasts approximately 273 sq. metres of floor space with the ground floor occupying a spacious, upmarket dining/restaurant area with approximately 126 covers, a full commercial kitchen and a large store room. To the first floor are five large rooms, which are currently used for storage, but have potential for further restaurant seating or could be converted to owner's accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality and freshness of the fayre offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering a lunchtime service. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. The business already has a website in place at, which offers online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
