We are delighted to offer this well known business which has been established for many years and is located in a very popular suburb of York. It benefits from having its own customer parking area to the front as well as an extra large 2-3 car garage. The commercial areas of the business are all equipped with impeccably clean stainless steel catering equipment and the new owners should have no need to undertake improvements of any sort. The property is fully alarmed and there is a CCTV system which is on a maintenance agreement. There is living accommodation above, which is currently let out short term. This would not form part of the property being offered if leasehold but will be included as part of a freehold sale. Access to the living  accommodation is through the garage.

In our opinion the business can be run by 2 full time hands on owners plus an assistant to wash up etc and part time help on busier days.  We understand that takings for year ended 30th September 2017 were roughly £60,000. Previously the business has achieved takings of over £200,000. It is felt that takings could be substantially increased given a new injection on life and enthusiasm.  Current opening hours are: Tues – Sat 11.30 – 1.30 and 4.30 – 9.00.( 8.00 pm on Saturdays ) Closed Sundays. Monday 4.30 to 8.30.
