Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and performing American style takeaway business.
They have an excellent reputation, along with a strong and consistent brand. The business has been placed on the open market as it’s our clients desire to leave the industry due to other business interests.
Chicago Grill has been operating under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for the last 8 months, and has grown the business to an impressive level with turnover levels growing steadily.
The business offers takeaway along with a thriving delivery service which includes, Burgers, chicken burgers, spare ribs, spicy wing meals, kids meals, milkshakes & deserts.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the goods and services offered.
This has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade along with regular online ordering via the Just Eat website.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, & the introduction of take away coffee business during the day.
A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent produce on offer, and perhaps offer a specialist outside catering service for events.
This is an outstanding, well run “turn key life style” business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.
Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
