BUSINESS

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market, Prince of Wales Fish Bar.

There has been a fish and chip shop at this location for at least 45 years and the current owners have run it successfully and lucratively for the last eighteen years.

The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly so that the owners can pursue a change of direction and enjoy a well earned, semi retirement.

They are keen to see their beloved business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

Prince of Wales Fish Bar is a traditional Fish and Chip Shop selling:

•Fish
•Chips
•Sausage and saveloys
•Cheese & onion fritters
•Pasties and pies
•Burgers
•Chicken
•Kebabs
•Scallops
•Tin roe
•Spring rolls
•Fish bites
•Cold drinks
•Meal deals

The business has many regular customers and enjoys a brisk lunchtime trade from the local businesses that are within walking distance.

The business enjoys good visibility on the internet with great reviews from the likes of TripAdvisor and Yell.com.

Scope to improve:

•Advertising and marketing campaign
•Maximise the use of social media particularly Facebook and Twitter.
•Extend the opening hours perhaps opening on a Sunday
•Website ideally with an online ordering facility
•Start a delivery service
•Explore online offerings from the likes of Hungry House and Just Eat

Reasons to buy:

•A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many regular customers
•Includes generous living accommodation or possible rental income
•Current owners would be happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
•Little or no competition locally
•All fixtures and fittings included in sale making this a real Turnkey business opportunity
•Ideal owner managed or partnership business

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

LOCATION

Prince of Wales Fish Bar is Located in the Warstock area of Birmingham in the West Midlands.

Warstock is a district within the city of Birmingham in the southern suburbs roughly 1km east of the A435 and within the ward of Highters Heath.

The area lies within the B14 postcode and is contiguous with Yardley Wood to the north east, Solihull Lodge to the south east and Highters Heath to the south west. Kings Heath lies to the north west.

The central area includes the Highters Heath Community School and is served by National Express West Midlands no.2 bus route.

The housing in Warstock is mostly terraced and semi-detached, for the most part built in and around the 1930’s to house the result of the first baby boom. There are a number of shops sited across two locations on Prince of Wales lane where the business is located.

Prince of Wales Fish Bar is centrally located in an unusually busy and vibrant shopping parade alongside other complimentary retail businesses such as a barbers, tanning shop, dentist and hairdressers and thus benefits from good footfall along with passing trade and many regular customers.

The business is nicely presented and maintained with clear visible signage. There is free on street parking immediately outside the premises.
