The premises are situated in an established trading position within the heart of Worthing town centre and in an area earmarked to be pedestrianised in an exciting scheme to create a ‘continental-style’ boulevard in 2020. The property is just yards from the town’s main pedestrianised shopping precinct of Montague Street and nearby occupiers include a mix of national and independent retailers, office users and eateries.
An excellent opportunity to occupy a fully fitted and trading daytime sandwich bar which has been trading for approximately 35 years and in the current ownership for the past 20 years.
Currently serving a menu of sandwiches, light lunches and hot snacks, the business trades all year round between the hours of 7:30am – 4pm Monday to Saturday. The current owner runs the business with the assistance of 1 full-time and 3 part-time members of staff.
The premises, which are presented in good order throughout, comprise an open plan kitchen/serving area with breakfast bar and table seating for approx. 8 covers. There is a small storage/prep area and WC to the rear, whilst externally the premises benefit from outside seating for a further 8 covers.
This is an excellent turnkey opportunity to purchase an extremely well-established and profitable business, and viewing is highly recommended.
The property has the following approximate gross internal floor areas:
Maximum overall width 10’8
Maximum overall depth 30’10
Approximate area 326 sq ft
