Description Well established traditional fish and chip shop and Chinese take away situated in Croydon within a residential and commercial area. The business is located on a main road parade amongst other independent retailers and national chains. The area in general is well served by a number of bus routes and benefits from a loyal and regular client base along with passing trade.
The business has been run under the current ownership since 2002 although we have been advised that a chip shop has traded from the same spot since the mid 1970’s. Our client introduced the Chinese take away to generate additional income. Since purchasing, our client has built up an excellent reputation for providing high quality take away food which can be delivered by Deliveroo or UberEats.
The business has limited competition locally so therefore benefits from good gross and net profits margins. Whilst the business generates a decent level of income each week it still offers genuine growth potential for any new owner. In our opinion there is ample room within the shop to add additional food lines such as kebabs, burgers and potentially a pizza over.
Financial Information We have been advised that the business generates an income of approx. £3,000 per week.
Staff The business is run by a husband and wife team along with ad hoc part time staff.
Building External Spacious shop premises operating from the ground floor of a three storey mid terraced property on a parade location with excellent road side signage.
Building Internal Light and airy customer area which is presented good condition and provides a welcoming feel when entering from the street.
The main serving area is equipped with a modern, two pan P&T Range which we are advised was installed in 2015 by the current owner. The range has been well maintained and we are further advised that is serviced annually. Single till with stainless work top.
Chinese wok range with eight burners.
Services The prep and store areas are to the rear of the property and are again presented in good condition. Stainless Island style prep table. The business has ample stainless work tops along with commercial refrigeration and a walk in fridge and freezer. Tiled floor throughout the prep and serving areas. Staff WC.
All the fixtures and fittings are included within the sale price.

Summary An ideal opportunity for an energetic, hands on owner who can take this well used traditional fish and chip shop and Chinese take away to the next level and to build upon the already excellent reputation gained under the current ownership.
A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the location and property.
