Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Kibworth Fish Bar. This long-established fish and chip shop was originally established in the 1970’s. Our client took over in 2004 and now looks to sell, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a fish and chip shop in a prime trading location. Kibworth Fish Bar offers a great menu, this includes classic fayre such as fish, sausage, pies, scampi, burgers, kebabs as well as extras such as black pudding, calamari and potato fritters.

The fish and chip shop is well-known in this village location and boasts an exceptional reputation. We feel that the purchaser could look to consider a delivery service to the local area. Advertising this service through delivery sites such as JustEat and HungryHouse could be a great way of boosting income. Extending the menu and introducing pizzas and other fayre could be something the purchaser considers. There are several housing developments in the local area; targeting custom from new residents should be a focus of the buyer.

A main feature of this business is the exceptional four bedroom living accommodation which is a generous size and arranged over two floors, allowing for a purchaser to relocate to the business if required.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. The fish and chip shop is in a turn key trading position and would be a perfect purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.

Kibworth Fish Bar is located in Kibworth Beauchamp, Leicester.

The fish and chip shop is situated in the main shopping area of the village amongst ample independent retail outlets. The fish and chip shop is also diagonally opposite a Co-Operative supermarket which has a large free car park. Kibworth Fish Bar is also just a few doors down from the village Post Office and benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade.

Kibworth is a picturesque village in the Harborough district of Leicestershire. In 2011, the census showed the population was circa 5,400. There are several residential housing developments going on in the village, this is likely to increase the population in the very near future.

The business is set on the main high street in the village. The road is close to the A6, an arterial a-road that runs from the centre of Leicester. As well as great road connections, the business is also set by the X7 Stagecoach and X3 Arriva bus services which run through the village to Leicester and Market Harborough.
