This business was acquired and rebranded by our client approximately 12 months ago but has now been placed reluctantly on the market as the current owner has a new work commitment pending.
The shop is located on Alley 1 just off Grainger Street in the heart of the City Centre and forms part of the Grainger Market. The Grainger Market was built in 1835 and is the City’s largest traditional market and is situated in an elegant, classically styled building close to The Monument. This undercover market was the largest in Europe when it was first built and is home to over 100 traders, ranging from small independents to large multiples.
The business offers a range of food options but these are based predominantly on meats and is best known for its’ grilled products and, in particular, the burgers. The business benefits from a 5 Star Food Hygiene Rating and over the last 12 months the customer base has developed, receiving excellent customer feedback ratings on Just Eat and various social media pages so far to date. The additional seating area means that customers have the option to eat in as well as “grab and go”. Footfall within the arcade has benefitted from the improvements in Eldon Square which can now be accessed via the Grainger Market and this has created an extra flow of potential customers.
This business can be operated single handed with part time staff but may trade better as a partnership. Viewing is recommended to appreciate the corner site location and the potential.
