The business previously traded as a Di Maggio’s restaurant, although all Di Maggio’s branding has now been removed. The premises remain in excellent order and are fully fitted, furnished and equipped, ready to trade. A premium is being sought for the benefit of the fully fitted furnished and equipped premises, with a long, unexpired lease term.
The business ceased trading in March 2020 due to COVID restrictions. This is not a sale of a going concern, but simply a lease assignation. As a result, there are no staff transferring over to an incoming tenant. Net of VAT sales in 2016 were £1,052,695 and in 2017, £972,277. This is a fantastic opportunity for an incoming tenant to immediately commence trading in a first class location and create an excellent long term business.
