Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market A F C. This takeaway was established in 2010 and was taken over by our client in 2013. The owner is now looking to sell this successful business, due to the desire to focus on other interests.

The business runs as a fast food takeaway offering an excellent menu for great prices. The menu includes fried chicken, burgers, kebabs, wraps, desserts and drinks. Meal deals are available. The food can be eaten in store or taken away, deliveries are also available.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £520,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 50%. This is a great turnover that could be increased. The new owner should look to reduce staffing costs. There are 9 members of staff that currently work at the business.

There are currently 12 covers in the shop. Above are three unused rooms, this space could be utilised as an additional seating area and could benefit the takeaway.

The business advertises on JustEat. This is a popular site that is increasing in popularity. A business website and Facebook page could further benefit the business. Online ordering is convenient for customers.

A great plus to the business is the AFC Scunthorpe app which is available to download on Apple and Android. The app allows customer to order meals and emails are sent throughout the order to keep customers informed as to when the delivery will take place. There is the option to pay by card on the app or to pay cash on delivery. This is a popular way of ordering.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
