Rutter Green Commercial are delighted top offer for sale this freehold commercial property with existing Chinese Takeaway business in Standish, Greater Manchester. The business occupies substantial two storey premises on a prominent corner site with a wide double frontage and prominent signage. As well as having its own private yard with spaces for up to 6 vehicles, it benefits from being next to a public car park. School Lane is the main A5209 through the centre of Standish which generates a high daily footfall and much passing trade. In addition, the premises are surrounded by a wide variety of other well supported shops and independent businesses including Alberts of Standish. The area is particularly popular place to live with quality primary / secondary schools and numerous new housing estates being built. Standish is easily accessible from Junction 27 of the M6 Motorway and within comfortable commuting distance of all major North West conurbations.

The Chinese Takeaway business has been established since 1984 and is only now being placed on the market due to retirement. As a Chinese it only opens in the evenings generating an average weekly turnover of £3000 per week, (6 nights). There remains infinite scope to develop turnover further as the business does not offer a delivery service, has no website and is not listed on any online delivery portals such as Just Eat.

The property would make an ideal eat-in restaurant as in the 1970’s it was the famous ‘Standish Fryer’ fish and chip shop with a 30 cover dining area on the ground floor adjacent to the takeaway. The premises have A5 planning consent and would be suitable for a wide range of catering opportunities. The building has a 4 bedroom flat on the first floor which could be made self-contained if desired.
