The Cod Father Sold in Devon

A thriving seaside fish and chip shop and cafe in Devon has found a new owner, thanks to Kings Business.

The Cod Father in Kingsbridge, Devon, represented the opportunity to acquire a popular lifestyle business, set in a superb location, that enjoys tourist trade as well as significant local support. The business is a traditional fish and chip shop featuring a café with a 30 cover seating area. The Cod Father has been in the area for over 80 years and has benefited from significant investment on behalf of the vendor, who decided to place the business on the market due to their wish to retire.

Following a number of viewings, the business was sold to Mrs. Theo Vasiliou, who has previous experience in running a fish and chip business.

Mrs. Vasiliou said: “The commercial property team at Kings provided a good service.

“I was in constant contact with Eyaz, a member of the sales team, who provided first-class commercial advice and help throughout the somewhat lengthy purchase. I was impressed with his handling of the sale and his personal and approachable manner.

“I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Eyaz Ishrat from Kings Business commented: “I’m delighted that we were able to achieve a sale for the vendor, and it’s fantastic that The Cod Father will now be under the careful ownership of someone with previous experience in the sector. I wish Mrs Vasiliou every success in this superb business.”
