Dave’s Fish Bar occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the town of Rotherham in South Yorkshire. The property occupies a prominent corner position and is surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade. The fish bar is located on Meadowhall Road and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as good car parking facilities to the front and side of the premises.
Rotherham is a large town in South Yorkshire. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 257,280. Rotherham town centre is a bustling and vibrant place to shop, with over 400 businesses including a mixture of high street favourites, small independent retailers, cafes and restaurants, as well as lively indoor and outdoor markets.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Meadowhall railway station is approximately 1½ miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A6109 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Rotherham town centre is approximately 2½ miles away and Sheffield is 5½ miles away.
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular fish & chip shop business, which is ideally located within Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
The business was originally established in the 1970s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2015. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The fish and chip shop currently operates 6 days per week.
Our client offers a wide variety of fast food fayre to take away including fish & chips, pizza, garlic bread, kebabs, burgers, wraps and special offers. The property has recently been re-fitted at some considerable cost to our client. The ground floor boasts 17 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.
The first floor offers a self-contained flat, which includes a lounge, newly fitted kitchen, new bathroom and a double bedroom, which could be used as owners’ accommodation or rented out to generate further income.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover, perhaps by extending the opening hours at weekends. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and services offered. The business could also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
