Baguette Express, Portobello (ref 1663)

Portobello, Edinburgh

Business location


  • Price: 39500
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Sandwich shop

The business is situated on Portobello High Street, not far from the beach-front in the north-east Edinburgh suburb of Portobello. Portobello is fondly known as “Edinburgh by the sea” and although formerly a town in its own right, it is located within a three mile drive of Edinburgh city centre.

Portobello offers excellent access to the Edinburgh city bypass as well as the A1 south. Other nearby notable areas nearby are Leith, Joppa and Musselburgh, all reachable within a short drive.

The business sits on the busy High Street, which has a wide and varied range of retail and licensed businesses, as well as being a densely populated residential area which has seen significant development over recent years.

Currently trading as a Baguette Express franchise, this unit offers a fantastic opportunity for a hands on operator to take on a very well fitted sandwich shop located in the desirable Portobello of Edinburgh. There is an option to remain with the franchise where royalty fees are just 2% and full training will be given, alternatively should the buyer prefer to operate as an independent then this will also be allowed.

No expense has been spared when kitting out the business and it is only through personal circumstances that the current owner has reluctantly placed the opportunity on the market.

There is plenty scope to develop what is already in place by looking at extending the opening hours. The current owner offers a full ‘Halal’ menu which could revert to standard which would benefit breakfast sales and an addition of ice cream/desserts would be welcomed.
