Ernest Wilson says: “This is a fabulous opportunity to acquire this beautifully presented and immaculately fitted and equipped fish and chips takeaway.

“The premises, which are held on lease and benefit from a sensible rent, occupy a prime trading position in the heart of Chesterfield town centre and opposite one of the towns major car parks – a better site would be hard to find within the town, particularly given that a new development is under construction nearby.

The Spire Frier occupies a "prime trading position" in Chesterfield town centre.

“The business was run entirely by staff with our client providing only a managerial role, however due to other commitments, the business was closed in July 2020 to free up more time for our client.”

The takeaway features a fully-tiled sales shop, three-pan computerised range, spacious preparation room and store room.

The Spire Frier hit the headlines in December 2019 with its Christmas lunch. Pictured then were owner Katie Johnson, shop manager Candice Jacks and counter assistant Beth Shouk with the lunch.
