Property description

Ref 6621 – Leasehold Sandwich Bar
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold sandwich bar located in a popular and much sought after area of Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire.


The Best Sandwich Shop has been trading for well in excess of twenty years and is greatly established in the local community. It has a loyal customer base locally and has developed steadily over the past five years under the current owner with the implementation of an online ordering system delivering to homes and businesses alike. The Best Sandwich Shop has an excellent reputation in the area with a strong online and social media following and excellent reviews noted on Facebook, JustEat and Google.


The Best Sandwich Shop is positioned on a busy main road close to the town centre. This area is also home to a large residential community as well as three large schools and a busy chemical plant. Heckmondwike is well linked by the M62, M1 and B6117 with good public transport links and free off road parking is available immediately outside the shop.

Reason for sale

The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to ill health, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). This is the most common form of commercial property lease. The current lease is a rolling lease which runs at a cost of only £70 per week.


At present, the business staffs around 49 hours per week over 6 days which is the owner & two casual staff that are willing to stay on and support the new owner if needed

Financial details

The Best Sandwich Shop has an impressive trading history and has traded solidly since our client took ownership. The accounts for year ending 2018 show annual turnover of £71,143. The introduction of JustEat has seen turnover increase by 33% in its first year - it is still in its infancy but proving to be a positive asset, with online orders continue to grow. Full financial details are available upon viewing.

Business rates

The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.


This leasehold business long established. The trading position brings a good amount of local trade and passers by and the business has an enviable reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours to capture school pick ups and early tea times. There is also potential to increase the delivery area currently offered and offer outside catering services for other businesses and events such as family celebrations. Early viewing is essential to appreciate this business as it is a turn key money maker from day one. All the hard work has been done for you, the brand name is strong locally, suppliers are sourced and in place, and an online ordering system and card payment already installed. Business: £39,995.
