Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Arroz Food, a newly re-fitted convenience store with lots of further growth potential.

The ‘Turn-key’ business opportunity was established in August 2020 during the countries lockdown period and is now only being offered for sale due to our client’s health.

We are advised a new glass fronted display freezer will be arriving soon to enable the shop to increase the range of frozen food lines.

We are advised the business attracts a healthy mix of locals, families, local businesspeople and students.

As the awareness of the store increases, so do the weekly sales.

We recommend any serious buyer to make an early enquiry to avoid disappointment.
