Probably Torquay’s best located chip shop, which comes with a modern 4 pan state of the art range, take-away area inside and 2 large outdoor terraces with stunning sea views. Within the shop are customer ladies and gents’ toilets and to the rear the business benefits from a small washup, large well equipped prep room/kitchen, 2 x storerooms, walk-in freezer and wet room. This owner operated lock-up business operates with full and part time assistance and opens lunch time through to evenings. Currently not offering a delivery service but generating an impressive turnover and subsequent net profit, the business is being sold due to retirement. Early viewings are recommended.

Torquay is one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations, with a good all-year round trade. It is only a short distance from Dartmouth and equal distance to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter – with its international airport, mainline train station and M5 motorway. Situated by the sea front and located just a short walking distance to the picturesque Marina and Harbour of Torquay and a level walk along the esplanade, with lovely views over Torbay to Paignton and Brixham. It is also within a short walk is the main shopping precinct, Princess Theatre and the Riviera Convention Centre.

This chip-shop has been successfully owner operated for many years with full and part-time assistance. The business has received much praise by visitors and locals alike. Opening 5 days per week lunch through to early evening but without a delivery service which could possibly double the already impressive turnover. However, we the agents feel there is great opportunity to expand by opening longer hours,  offering delivery and a wider product range. Actual trading figures will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
