Having been successfully operated by the present family owners since 2002, this well-known business has established a truly enviable reputation for offering the finest fresh cuisine, served from clean and welcoming premises with a warm and friendly service.
The business enjoys excellent online reviews boasting an extensive and loyal customer base from the surrounding area and beyond. JM’s operates from a substantial and highly visible property providing an excellent blend of spacious lock up business accommodation and flexible self-contained first floor private living quarters. JM’s is a lucrative business yet only operates on limited openings, 5 days a week only and is run heavily by staff due to the vendor’s wish to retire. The business therefore represents a fantastic investment for an ambitious family who can enjoy extending the opening hours, introduce a wider menu whilst also operating a hands-on approach.
This could increase the weekly takings whilst enabling additional staffing levels to a be kept to a minimum therefore maximising overall profitability. This is a terrific opportunity to acquire a well-established business with a superb reputation and a valuable freehold property occupying a prominent town centre position. Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
