Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Regal Fish and Chips, a very well-established business with approx. 50 years trading history. Our clients purchased the successful business 5 years ago and due to health reasons are reluctantly looking to sell.
The business comes with a spacious 4 bedroomed flat situated above the shop as well as several outbuildings to the rear.
Rarely do takeaways concentrating on a traditional Fish and Chips focused menu come onto the market in this area and we therefore advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The menu includes -
- Cod, Haddock, Plaice, Scampi, Cod Roe and homemade Fish Cakes.
- Burgers, Chicken, Sausages, Fritters & Rolls, Pies and Pasties.
- Oap specials, Kids meals, Cold drinks.
We are advised that 100% of the turnover is derived from walk in customers, with a very loyal local customer base in place.
The business also comes with 5-star reviews on Facebook as well as good reviews in TripAdvisor.
Any new owner may look to add any of the following points to further increase weekly turnover levels -
- Add a new website with an online ordering facility.
- Offer local deliveries for oap’s, residential homes.
- Open more lunchtimes.
- Increase the current menu to include kebabs, pizza or piri piri chicken.
- Extend the opening hours.
- Increase local advertising through new leaflet drop.
The business comes with an excellent long renewable lease in place, large accommodation makes it ideal for any family looking to relocate to this lovely area.Location
