Lisa’s Fish & Chips sold to experienced investor
29th June 2020
This excellent investment opportunity in Chorley, Lancashire has been sold by Kings Business.
Proving over the course of 40 years to be a cornerstone of its community, this prominent retail unit has long enjoyed regular repeat custom from the surrounding areas.
This 2-storey property is presented to a very high standard, with a 3-pan fryer and main counter in the entrance, a fully equipped kitchen to the rear, and generously spaced residential accommodation on the first floor.
Having owned the premises for the past 8 years, the previous owner operated a highly successful Chinese fish and chip shop, revered by locals for its excellent quality food and friendly service. Seeking retirement, the owner made the difficult decision to finally sell the building.
Recognising Kings Business as the prominent brokerage in the retail sector, we were instructed to market the business and ensure a succinct and seamless transfer of ownership to an aspiring new owner.
Occupying an end terraced property in a highly residential area, the location of this rare opportunity enticed a large amount of interest, garnering 6 viewings and 2 separate offers following a comprehensive marketing campaign.
The new owner, an experienced property developer, cited the retail units advantageous positioning in a deeply residential area as a key factor for their interest and subsequent purchase; they now plan to open a chip shop and renovate the upstairs accommodation.
The vendor commented;
“Sophie has done a very good job and I am very happy with everything Sophie has done. My family have businesses and I will be recommending Kings business transfer to them.”
The buyer commented;
“Experience very good, very professional, helpful. Very good, good at communicating and always responded quickly. Would recommend to friends and family.”
Lead negotiator Sophie Jakeman commented;
“We had some challenges along the way with Covid restrictions and working remotely, but so happy for a successful completion for our clients.”
