Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an Italian restaurant that was fully fitted out and opened in March 2018. The cost of the refurbishment was approximately £150,000, the value of which did not include the two walk in chillers and air conditioning system, which were already in place.

Due to other working commitments our client is now looking to sell the restaurant, which takes an average of £7,500 per week.

The business is a traditional Italian restaurant and pizzeria serving a large selection of authentic Italian food made by Italian chefs. From traditional pasta dishes, pizzas, fish & meat dishes, starters, gelato, desserts, beer and Italian wines.

There is a full premises licence and the restaurant can stay open until 11.00 pm.

Although the business has only been open since spring 2018 it has many returning customers for both the lunch and evening menus. There are also strong reviews on TripAdvisor 4.5/5, Google 4.6/5 and Taste card 4.2/5.

The restaurant also has a delivery option via their delivery partners Deliveroo and UberEATS.

Our client wishes to retain the name of the business as they have other premises with the same name, therefore the new buyer will need to re-brand, however, a slight tweak of the brand name is all that is required.

There are many reasons to buy the restaurant including:

•Fully refurbished premises in 2018

•Very high footfall area

•Different menus could be added

•Existing running business taking approximately £7,500 per week

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The business is located in the town centre of Watford, Hertfordshire, on the main thoroughfare through the town with a high footfall.

The business is surrounded by many other thriving shops including independent shops and large chains.

There are many very local car parks, including Gare multi storey car park which charges £1 per hour for parking.

Watford has a large road and travel network that leads in and out of the town to London and to M25, M1 and A41, along with other major roads.

Watford’s estimated population in 2017 was just over 100,000 and there are many workers who come to Watford from surrounding towns and villages.
