Teesside fish and chip chain Pelican Jacks is up for sale.
The chain comprises three takeaways, one in Whale Hill, which is currently operational and turning over £182,000 a year, as well as Marske-by-the-Sea, and Eston, which ceased trading in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
All three shops are said to be equipped to the highest quality and are described as turnkey operations with no further capital investment required.
The shop in Whale Hill, which is run and managed by four full time and two part time members of staff, is the only shop in Middlesbrough to hold the NFFF Quality Award. It is up for sale at £69,950 while Marske-by-the-Sea has a price tag of £10,000 and Eston £12,500.
Owner John Reeves is selling the shops to concentrate on other professional ventures, and has enlisted the help of business broker Hilton Smythe to find the right new owner for the successful restaurants.
Gareth Smyth, group managing director at Hilton Smythe, said: “Fish and chip shops are a Great British institution. Regardless of what is happening in the economy, businesses like the humble chippy survive; because good, quality food is comforting and always popular. It makes it a savvy investment as well as a job.”
John adds: “We continue to use the best locally sourced ingredients to make the quality fish and chips our customers love. We also continue to work with the local community through fundraising and events, and we hope that the new buyer will continue this well-loved tradition.
“It is the ideal time to buy a business, and there’s no better business than a chippy!”
