Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Dixi Express which is a well-established Takeaway shop with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a food-based business at these premises for over 15 years and the current owner has run it as Dixi Express for the last 3 years and the business has flourished under his ownership accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation. Alas the business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to personal reasons. The vendor is keen to see his beloved takeaway pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
Dixi Express is a Pizza takeaway and offers an extensive menu for delivery or collection including:
- Southern Fried Chicken.
- Peri Peri Chicken.
- Ice Cream.
- Kids meals.
- Meal Deals.
The sale will include the company website and the business enjoys great visibility on the internet.
