Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful Freehold 5 Bedroom Property and Fish & Chip Restaurant/Takeaway which is located in France. The business was established back in 2002 and has been in the careful hands of our client since 2007. Reluctantly the property is now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have kept the property in good order and the business comes fully fitted and ready to trade. The Fish & Chip shop ceased trading back in 2017 when my clients decided to retire. The business traded 3 nights per week, Thursday, Friday & Saturday in winter 6pm-9pm and summer 6pm-10pm for between 42 and 45 weeks (135 evenings per annum). They closed from Christmas until mid February where typically in France they operate 310 openings. This gives plenty of scope for expansion on the current turnover circa 55,000 euros. La Sirene were specialists in Icelandic Cod and Haddock (Fresh frozen at sea) and would you believe (English potatoes), plus many other items including Pukka Pies, curries, burgers, homemade specials and deserts. Included is a beer and wine licence and the local Mayor has granted permission for tables outside. The business enjoyed a guest book full of superb comments and strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many passing tourists. There is potential to convert three of the bedrooms in bed & breakfast rooms if required. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business and lovely family home which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this is not to be missed.
