The business is ideally suited to a hands on owner operator. Due to our clients ill health a desire to retire the business is offered for sale and therefore presents and excellent opportunity for a new owner operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure (Fri) lease. This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a six year lease which began in 2018 at a cost of £199 per week.

This well established fish and chip shop occupies an enviable trading position just a short distance away from the beach front. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of deliveries along with the implementation of a website with ordering service and the potential for expansion of the current menu. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £49,950.
