Ilfracombe has long been established as a thriving seaside resort, thanks to its sandy beach, wide range of accommodation and amenities. In recent years it has attracted a more diverse crowd too, including those who come to visit its Michelin-starred restaurant and see artist Damien Hirst’s installation ‘Verity’ that dominates the otherwise traditional harbour. Ilfracombe’s resident population of over 11,000 makes it one of North Devon’s larger towns, and there are solid plans for ongoing development including an additional 1,500k houses and possible marina. Good road and bus services connect Ilfracombe to Barnstaple (12 miles), Woolacombe (6 miles), Combe Martin (5 miles), Croyde (9 miles), Braunton (7 miles), Bideford (22 miles) and South Molton (24 miles).


The premises are within a prime retail pitch within easy walking distance to areas of parking and national operators including Lloyds Pharmacy, Superdrug, McColls Convenience Store and Nationwide.


Being double fronted shop unit, the premises is fitted out as a Subway franchise with serve over counter, table and chair seating for circa 20 covers, rear preparation and walk in chiller.  There is also basement storage and rear car parking.


Our clients are inviting offers for the Leasehold interest, further lease information available on request.  We understand the current rent is £9,000 per annum.


Currently trading as a Subway franchise the business is fully operated by staff at the current time with a wage bill of approximately £55,000 per annum.  It is thought new owners could significantly reduce these costs and increase the profitability of the store.  Turnover for the past two years has been between £180,000 and £200,000.  The business is sold with the Subway fit out along with the franchise back up support and advice.  Current operating hours are 7am - 9pm 6 days per week and 8am - 9pm Sundays.  Subway offer hot and cold sandwiches (subs) as well as salads, hot and cold drinks for either eat in or take-away trade.  Although the store is well fitted an updated 'face lift' of the store will be required as part of the franchise agreement, further information available upon request.  It should be noted that the setting up of a 'new' store and franchise would normally cost in excess of £100,000 so the opportunity to acquire a franchise for less than this is rare.


Any current stock to be purchased at valuation upon completion.


The property is sold with an inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.


Payable, if applicable, at the prevailing rate.
