This is an established hot food takeaway site which was closed during the initial “lockdown” period but was then acquired by our client and refurbishd in late 2020.
Rickleton is one of the “village” communities that form the town of Washington. Rickleton is to the south of the main town centre and is a popular residential address with comprises a broad range of provide housing. The business forms part of a small shopping area off Vigo Lane with a free car opposite.
This fish and chip shop and hot food takeaway opportunity comprises an extremely well fully fitted and equipped unit which was refurbished in late 2020. The business operates as a traditional fish and chip shop with a relatively compact menu but that includes pizza and kebabs.
There are strong levels of captive trade from the local population and passing trade is generated from its relatively easy main road access and free parking. The trading hours are currently short through personal choice with no lunchtime opening and evenings only to 8pm. There is a delivery service which could be promoted further and the good road access will clearly assist this part of the trade.
This is an opportunity to acquire a reputable business in a pleasant residential area with scope and potential to quickly expand all the elements.
