FISH AND CHIP 60+ COVER LICENSED RESTAURANT AND TAKEAWAY in Scunthorpe for Sale.
Licensed 60 plus cover fish and chip restaurant with independent takeaway shop, newly converted at great cost by our clients from former high street bank premises. Brand newly installed catering kitchen serves both the restaurant and the fully independent walk-up takeaway sales counter. The kitchen and food prep areas are superbly fitted and equipped with top-of-the-line commercial quality equipment including a new, four pan, island Hopkins frying range and commercial grill, griddle and oven cookline under a high capacity, stainless steel, hooded extraction system.
Only recently opened post total fit-out works, it was always our client’s intention to start the business up but then lease the premises out to competent restaurant operators. Our clients own the property and now seek to retire and use the property as an investment to carry them through their retirement. This is an outstanding opportunity for ambitious and hard-working owners to take advantage of this beautifully appointed and equipped restaurant premises and its location, in the central heart of the pedestrianised High Street of this busy and densely populated North Lincolnshire town.
The Business: Run on relatively short openings from 11am to just 6.30pm, six days a week, the potential here is huge for the operation to offer breakfast service and stay open into the evenings for chippy teas. Energetic and enterprising new owners only need to promote more effectively (something our clients have not had the opportunity to do down to health reasons) and get the word out via Social Media and bulk mail shots. Use of modern, online food ordering and delivery portals such as Just Eat, UberEats and Deliveroo would instantly boost takings to a whole enhanced level.
The Premises: Highly prominent, triple width, ground floor retail premises. Full height glazing with electric security shutters. Two independent entrances, one for the walk-in takeaway, and one entrance into a reception foyer and through to the open plan bar and dining room. Neutral décor and modern furniture, purposely safely spaced out to comfortably accommodate 60 diners at present but could easily be rearranged to seat 70 or more.
A special feature of the restaurant is the clever use of the original bank vault, which now serves to provide unique washroom and toilet facilities for its diners. The restaurant benefits from a full alcohol licence and has a fully stocked bar. The restaurant has gas central heating and ceiling mounted air-conditioning throughout. There is a manager’s office off the reception foyer.
A connecting door leads to the catering kitchen and provides ease of access for the restaurant wait staff to pick up food orders for diners. As expressed earlier, the kitchen, its frying, cooking, food prep, storage and utility areas are superbly kitted out and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
