Waterfront seafood business in ‘walk-in’ condition
OPERATORS seeking to snap up a business in a tourist hot-spot might be interested in a seafood restaurant and takeaway business, which has come onto the books of DM Hall.
Located on the waterfront near the busy ferry terminal in Oban – the ‘gateway to the isles’, the George Street Fish Restaurant and Fish & Chip Shop is described as “immaculately presented” and in “walk-in” condition.
The business is located next to the ferry terminal in Oban – the gateway to the isles.
Originally established in 2004 as the Fish & Chip Shop takeaway, the neighbouring property was acquired in 2013 and, following a complete refurbishment of both properties, the 32-cover restaurant was launched.
The business, both elements of which trade year-round apart from January when the restaurant is closed by the current owners through choice, is said to have established a strong reputation and benefit from “significant” repeat custom.
The traditional fish dinner is said to be particularly popular in the restaurant, although the menu also includes a range of local seafood, including halibut, scallops and langoustines, alongside several meat and vegetarian options; the takeaway business currently operates on shop sales only, with home deliveries not undertaken.
Suzanne Lawrie of DM Hall, which is marketing the George Street Fish Restaurant and Fish & Chip Shop with a guide price of £550,000, said the business is “immaculately presented”.
“This represents a ‘walk in’ opportunity for a new operator to take over an established and extremely busy business, with no further investment required,” she said.
“Ownership offers an ideal opportunity for a couple or family to operate it hands on and to develop further the income and profits currently generated.”
