The Chinese Takeaway business has been established for over 50 years and is arguably in one of the best trading locations for this type of business in Lancaster. It has been under the same ownership since 2001 and has only been placed on the market now due to retirement. The takeaway currently trades in the evenings only offering a classic Chinese based menu. There remains infinite scope to develop the business further by opening at lunchtimes or during the day. Alternatively, a wider menu choice could be provided such as traditional fish and chips, pizza or kebabs. There is no pro-active marketing carried out so promotions such as social media, apps and widening the delivery radius from 2 to 3 miles, offer further potential.
