A POPULAR fish and chip shop in a Scottish city has been put up for sale.

Franco’s Fish and Chip Shop in Stockbridge in Edinburgh is on the market as the operator looks to concentrate on a separate restaurant business.

They first took over the premises seven years ago after the previous owner had occupied the location for 46 years.

Cornerstone Business agents said: “Franco’s Fish and Chip Shop trades from a prominent location on Comely Bank Road which becomes Raeburn Place and is the main thoroughfare running through the highly desirable Edinburgh suburb of Stockbridge.

“The area is very popular with a wide and varied selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and quality retail businesses situated along the main street and the roads leading off.”

The leasehold is available at a guide price of £65,000 with an annual rent of £57,500.

The agent added: “Stockbridge enjoys an enviable reputation within the city as one of the outstanding locations to trade from, especially popular with smaller independent businesses.

“The popular Stockbridge Market also attracts footfall to the area, as does a recent development on Raeburn Place.”

It added that the business had been placed on the market “reluctantly” as the owner looked to concentrate on another restaurant he owns.

“The shop trades very well offering the usual range of fried foods along with pizzas, pastas, kebabs and burgers both counter sales or via delivery.

“There is scope to develop what is already a very desirable business which is located in an area that benefits from heavy footfall all year round and especially during the times that the Neighbourhood and Stockbridge Markets are trading.”
