FOR SALE: CHIPPY ANTIGUAMonday 21st June 2021
THE BEST SELF-EMPLOYED JOB IN THE WORLD
Mr Chippy - The best self-employed job in the world. Antigua's only traditional British Fish and chip shop and it is mobile. Almost no fixed overheads - masses of potential to expand Established 21 years. Would suit two couples sharing the expansion to more sales sites. No training required.
Antigua’s only traditional British fish and chip shop and it is mobile. Almost no fixed overheads - masses of potential to expand - established 21 years. The current owner opens only two afternoons a week on the north of the island yet makes a very respectable profit.
Opportunities to open in the yachting centres of English Harbour/Falmouth and Jolly Harbour could substantially expand the business especially during events as the annual Sailing Week, RORC 600 and Classic Regatta.
The business has an extensive and loyal customer base of not only tourists but also locals and is based on only 2 days opening per week (Wed and Fri 3.30 pm to 9pm) plus occasional special bookings and events.
This is a turnkey opportunity sold with a vehicle for towing and of course the mobile fish and chip shop. It is highly profitable with very low overheads and has been operated by the owner couple only, providing a healthy income and allowing time for relaxing on one of Antigua’s 365 beaches or whatever else you may wish to do. The owner takes a month or more off each year
The menu is eclectic with the usual fish and chips along with offerings of scampi, lobster, curries, homemade pies, sausages, mushy peas and various side dishes plus desserts and a fully stocked bar.
The business is also hired out for special events such as birthdays, weddings and sports days and is on venue for Test Match cricket especially when England play in Antigua with their vast following of supporters.
With almost no fixed overheads, profit is 70% of turnover. Even during Covid, demand has remained good and there is no reason to doubt that sales will return to pre-Covid levels with the increase in tourism and could be more than doubled by an operator prepared to work a few extra days in one or two more locations. Mobility is the key. Might suit two couples prepared to share the expanded workload.
