About the franchise for sale
The Arrow is a large community pub with high turnover and good food volume. In November 2014 it benefitted from a £120,000 investment and is well placed to deliver a great customer experience. The site offers Sky Sports, monthly entertainment and benefits from pool and darts teams, all of which make it the local place to be.
Trading Area and Private Accommodation
Our large range of ales and lagers are served across an ‘L’ shaped bar which also accommodates the carvery deck. The Arrow has various trading spaces including a casual dining area, a conservatory and a wet driven section that includes three pool tables – excellent for sports fans. The outside is divided into two areas, a patio with approximately 20 covers and a turf walled garden with a further 30 covers to satisfy those outdoorsy types!
The private accommodation has two bedrooms and is in good condition throughout.
Local Area and Customer Base
The Arrow is a large pub based within the Abbey Manor Shopping complex in the Brimshaw area of Yeovil. The shopping complex is in a large, primarily privately owned, residential area and there is further development of several hundred homes ongoing within the locality, so there are new customers to be targeted close by.
The Arrow currently operates at between £25,000 and £30,000 per week with a 70/30 wet/dry split. There is potential to develop the food side of the business and take further advantage of monthly live entertainment. The site has the capability to trade at over £30,000 per week. The new franchisee will need to be an experienced retail operator with a demonstrable track record in engaging with communities and driving sales in a high volume environment within the industry.
Please note that you will be required to obtain independent advice from a qualified accountant, RICS qualified surveyor and qualified solicitor at your own cost.
