We are very pleased to bring to the market this long established and well regarded fish and chip shop situated in the busy Suffolk town of Leiston, approximately 2 miles from the coast. Offering an attractive and well maintained shop together with a new lease, this is an ideal opportunity to acquire a very well run business.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
Having been acquired by the current owners 11 years ago and continually improved and modernised since the business and premises are now presented to the market in very good order. The owner now generally has a lesser involvement in the day to day running with a good staff team in place that are able to oversee things in their absence.
The accounts show an average weekly turnover being achieved consistently in the region of £4,250 however the business currently only operates Wednesday to Saturday so there is potential to increase this if so desired.
The business is well regarded in the local area with many customers travelling to the shop, helped by the large Co-op 2 hour free car park opposite. As well as the local trade there are many visiting tourists and contractors particularly from the nearby Sizewell power station.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The striking front facade to the building immediately draws you in and provides the kerb appeal needed to attract customers inside. Large glazed windows mean people can see how nice inside looks, further tempting them in, as well as providing good natural light internally.
The main service room is approximately 8.9m wide by 4.6m to the rear of the frying area. In addition there is a further eating area to the side of c. 4.1m x 2.3m which provides bar style seating for around 14 covers giving the option of having somewhere to eat inside the shop. There are two entrance/exit doors which have proved very useful in these current times with one end of the shop set up for click & collect orders and the other for walk-ins.
This main room is very well decorated with a traditional tiled floor and walls with a mix of feature grey timber cladding, exposed red brickwork, and white brick style glazed tiling. Lighting is provided from a mix of drop down industrial style light fittings as well as inset spot lights.
The Florigo range provides 3 chip fryers and 2 fish fryers with chip basket for service. There are a range of stainless steel surfaces, sink, under-counter fridge and freezer, 2 microwaves, drinks display fridge, oil filter and fish keep. The shop also benefits from a floor drainage point, C.C.T.V and EPOS till.
The middle preparation room with window overlooking the rear car park measures 6.7m x 2.7m again with tiled floor and drainage point and houses the potato bath, rumbler and chipper. In addition there is a double sink and drainers, various shelving and racking units, fridge and Worcester gas boiler.
The rear dry store room provides space for 2 chest freezers, a range of racking, potato bag storage, staff lockers and door to staff W.C. and measures 4.1m x 4.6m at the maximum points.

The business currently opens Wednesday to Saturday 11:45am to 2:00pm and 4:30pm to 8:00pm offering scope to increase this and the turnover achievable.
