A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A THRIVING AND SUCCESSFUL FAST- FOOD TAKEAWAY ON LYME REGIS SEAFRONT
Location The takeaway kiosk is prominently situated at the eastern end of the Marine Parade in Lyme Regis occupying one of the best trading positions on the seafront. It is located adjacent to the main pedestrian access to the sea from Broad Street the main shopping area of the town, and the main town centre car parks. Lyme Regis has the unusual characteristic for a holiday resort in that the whole seafront is pedestrianized. The business is situated between an ice cream parlour and gift shop with little fast food trading opposition in the vicinity.
The Business Established for over 10 years the current owners who own the adjacent businesses are wishing to downsize due to family commitments. The business has undergone significant development and investment including the introduction of the most up to date equipment. The kiosk has the advantage of planning permission for 15 outside seats on the Marine Parade placed immediately outside the premises for which an annual license fee is payable to the council. It has enjoyed an increasing significant turnover but has the potential for further growth as it presently trades only 6 days a week, 9 to 5 with no evening trading, on a seasonal basis only.
Inventory A full inventory of equipment is available. The comprehensive range of appliances includes deep fat fryers, numerous fridges and freezers, griddle, bain-marie, panini machine and a top of the range Macco auto bean to cup coffee machine. A particularly useful innovation is the long- range alerting system with 9 vibrating coasters to call customers when their order is ready.
