Business Information

A delightful freehold family run traditional fish and chip shop located in Suffolk, which has been established since the early 70's and ran by the current owners since 1999 - some 25 years! This is a genuine retirement sale and presents a rare opportunity to acquire this well regarded fish and chip shop.

This is a confidential sale at our clients request - therefore we kindly ask that you complete a short online non-disclosure form for their review before we can release further information on the business, which includes the exact location.

THE BUSINESS

Located in a densely populated residential area in a busy parade of shops, this family run business is well regarded and just outside of the local town centre.

Serving delicious fish and chips, burgers, pies, sausages, chicken nuggets, various other popular dishes and the expected sundries, there is also a good selection of ice cold drinks on offer. Customers can enjoy the convenience of collection/takeaway or delivery, and there is also the option to order online via Just Eat/Foodhub or by telephone. They also cater for children’s parties, weddings and events adding further income streams to the business - this is something that could possibly be expanded on by a new owner.

With a 5 Star food hygiene rating and ample free parking next to the business, it is easy to see why it is popular with customers and has endured the test of time.

As the owners are approaching retirement, the decision was made to only open for 18 hours per week to suit the vendors lifestyle. The opening hours could be increased for a new owner to further maximise turnover and there is little limit to the hours that could be traded.

PREMISES

The premises was purpose built as a fish and chip shop and was purchased from the local council some 25 years ago.

The main fish and chip shop features a 3 pan Blackburn range (economical) with serving counter, 2 microwaves, Casio till, large drinks refrigerator and freezer. The tiled flooring leads to partly PVC style wall coverings with complementary tiling and paintwork. There is completely enclosed ducting and fan extraction, a wall mounted insect zapper and a small sink with water heater.

Moving onto the preparation area, you will find 2 large fridge freezers, double sided stainless steel sink and drainer, water heater, chipper, 2 potato rumblers, extra large potato bin and 3 small ones, preparation counter, filleting board and various utensils. This leads through to a lobby/cloakroom.

There is a separate w.c with hand-wash basin and water heater.

Externally you will find an external storage room of good size for potato storage, 2 further large freezers and shelving.
