The Business – Currently an easily run fish and chip and pies restaurant – the business offers 34 different pies including vegan, vegetarian, gluten free etc. The business opens from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. 6 or 7 days a week according to season, but closes for a period during the winter.
The business is run by a husband and wife team and has been in the present hands for approximately 30 years and is now for sale due to retirement.
The business has been much busier in earlier times opening during the day, particularly in the very busy summer months, but now the business is kept below the vat threshold and accounts show takings just in excess of £70,000 p.a.
The potential for expansion in new owners’ hands is exceptional……
