The business is well established in the local area and in this time has developed a strong reputation for its food, serving traditional fish & chip shop products such as fish/chicken/pie/pudding suppers and burgers, as well as a selection of soft drinks.
in addition to the loyal customer base from the local residential area and neighbouring villages, revenue is supplemented by tourists and owners at the local caravan parks, as well as other tourist attractions which are situated along the coastal roads of Ayrshire.
Due to our client’s other business commitments they only work in the business 2 or 3 days a week and run the business very much to suit themselves, operating short trading hours and closing for 2 weeks at Christmas time.
The business trades exceptionally well with strong profit levels, however it is felt there is huge potential for a new owner operator to increase turnover further by opening at lunchtime, introducing a delivery service as well as a sit in/restaurant area, increasing the menu range to include pizzas, kebabs, ice cream etc or introduce another cuisine choice such as Chinese/Italian etc.
The subjects are held on an original 25-year FRI lease from February 2013, with a current passing rental of £17,200 per annum which has just been reviewed. There are 5 yearly rent reviews and break options.

The subjects benefit from a prominent roadside trading position within a popular retail development in an attractive and desirable part of Ayrshire, which lies on the west coast of Scotland.
The development enjoys high levels of passing traffic and footfall and benefits from a large customer car park.
The subjects benefit from a strong local catchment area from the main town and the surrounding villages, and this is supplemented by tourists and owners at the local caravan parks, as well as other tourist attractions which are situated along the coastal roads of Ayrshire.
Ayrshire benefits from high volumes of tourists and day trippers, who come to enjoy the many amenities the local area has to offer including its stunning coastlines. The Ayrshire area is also famous for its historic connections to Robert Burns, as well as for its many championship Golf Courses including Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry.
Internally, the premises, which were fitted out only a few years ago have been designed and fitted to an exacting standard with no expense spared, resulting in a stunning, contemporary shop fit.
An L-shaped counter/servery is positioned to the left-hand side of the premises and incorporates a 3-pan frying range. A double drinks fridge is positioned in the front shop for customer self-service as well as a waiting area with bench seating and a newspaper stand. The front area provides ample space should a new owner decide to put in some tables and chairs for sit-in customers. To the rear of the counter there is a large menu board along with a range of equipment including saladette counter with undercounter refrigeration, bain marie, microwaves etc.
The back shop area provides additional storage and preparation space and is home to a number of fridges and freezers, as well as a potato preparation area with peeler & chipper machines. The premises also benefit from a further large storage area, as well as a staff WC.
