Property description

Ref 6226 – Leasehold Fish & Chip Shop & Chinese Takeaway
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold fish and chip shop, and Chinese takeaway located in a busy and popular area of Maghull, Liverpool.


Famous Blue Star has been trading on Dover Road for over ten years, with our client in ownership since 2014. The business offers both fish and chip menu choices as well as offering a good range of Chinese menu options. It has gained a large, repeat customer base and a good reputation with a comprehensive website with an ordering system and partnership in place with Just Eat.


The business is positioned within a parade of shops in a residential area of Liverpool. This area is well linked by the M57 and M58 with Maghull and Old Roan train stations close by. Free parking is available in the immediate area outside the shop.

Reason for sale

Our client offers this business for sale due to other business commitments.


The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of a commercial lease. The current lease is twelve years and began in 2014 at a cost of £230.77 per week.

Building layout and design

Famous Blue Star operates from the ground floor of an end-terraced property within a small parade of shops. The business has signage displayed to the front and side of the property with a mainly glazed frontage. Inside, the customer servery and waiting area is well presented with tiled flooring and a matching customer counter, along with menu boards displayed and a Coca-Cola drinks fridge. To the rear of the servery is a food preparation area and a large, well-equipped kitchen that houses a range with fryers, bain marie, wok cooker and more. There are also washing facilities within an additional preparation room and a separate store room.

The first floor has a bathroom, lounge and two bedrooms but cannot be used as there is no fire exit in place.


The business is currently operating with our client and his partner working on a part-time basis, supported by two part-time members of staff.

Financial details

Famous Blue Star has traded solidly since opening. Full financial details are available upon viewing.


This leasehold business is well-established and has a large customer base, it could be easily adapted to suit different cuisines. There is much scope for expansion with the introduction of longer opening hours – recent opening hours have been limited to suit our client’s lifestyle. The business would also benefit from a new focus on the delivery service, partnerships with other websites such as Hungry House and a strong marketing drive. This proposition would suit another owner-operator with plenty of time to dedicate to this busy shop. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £60,000.
