£350k North Lanarkshire town centre restaurant for sale

Benkaz Ristorante Italiano, situated in the small town of Shotts, in North Lanarkshire, has come to market through Christie & Co, at offers over £350k.

Located almost halfway between Edinburgh and Glasgow, the restaurant has been owned by Lorraine Barrow for 13 years, who is now looking to retire. This has created an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take on and grow an already successful business.

The site has been refurbished and extended and would suit a variety of concepts although it trades exceptionally well as an Italian restaurant.

It features a bar that leads on to the main dining area and spacious extension. Externally, there is a small seating area for up to 10 covers and a car park to the rear for five cars.

Tony Spence, Hospitality Business Agent at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “Our client, Lorraine has owned Benkaz since 2009 but has now reluctantly decided to sell to focus on other business interests, meaning an excellent opportunity has become available to purchase a popular restaurant located in the town centre of Shotts.

“The restaurant is well known for its freshly prepared chicken, beef, pizza and pasta dishes and boasts great reviews via Google and TripAdvisor. It has also built a great following on Facebook however, there is plenty of potential for a new owner to come in and introduce a different concept.”
