REF 6811 –Freehold Fish & Chip Shop & Accommodation
Blacks Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this freehold fish & chip shop & accommodation located in the town centre of Burton Upon Trent, Staffordshire.
Happy Friar has been trading on Wellington Street for almost forty years. Our client’s family established the business here due to the high amount of footfall generated by the busy surrounding area and our client took ownership in 2018. The premises underwent a thorough refurbishment in 2018 with our client investing heavily in quality equipment, fixtures and fittings. The business is very well known and has an excellent reputation with a large base of regular customers and excellent reviews noted on Google and Trip Advisor.
The property is positioned on a busy main road within a parade of shops. This is close to Burton-On-Trent Station and The National Brewery Centre as well as large multiples including Asda and Sainsbury’s and many independent retailers and offices. The area is well linked by the A38 and A511 with good public transport links and free roadside parking is available in the immediate vicinity.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s desire to relocate, the property and business are offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The business is currently operating with our client and partner only working on a full time basis.
Happy Friar has traded well during an impressive trading history. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £78,000. Full financial details are available upon viewing. It is to be stressed that the business is currently being run at a pace to suit and there is scope and demand to extend opening hours and days.
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This freehold property and business occupy a superb trading position on a busy main road and has an unrivalled reputation and trading history in this area. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with a strong marketing drive and new online presence. New opening hours and a delivery service are in high demand in this area. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
