Business location


  • Price: 25000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Hot food takeaway

Formerly trading as The Square, this class 3 hot food takeaway is located in Edinburgh city centre, just to the north of St Andrews Square. Positioned in the heart of the New Town, the business benefits from a good level of passing trade both on Dublin Street and the adjoining York Place.

The business is located on the ground floor and basement of a traditional Georgian style Edinburgh tenement property. The large glazed entrance sits alongside a window whilst parking is available directly outside and in the surrounding areas.

The property is laid out in traditional takeaway style with a good sized waiting area and space for some tables and chairs. The servery was positioned towards the rear of the premises with ancillary equipment.  There is a good sized and well equipped commercial kitchen with walk in chiller. 

This business formerly traded as The Square, a takeaway business that specialised in soups, sandwiches, baked potatoes and coffees along with its other unit located on North St Andrews Street.

The owner has decided not to reopen this unit after lockdown and to concentrate on the other branch. The new owner of this site will need to change the name of the business and indeed due to the excellent location and set up it would suit any number of different offerings.

There is scope to adapt what was previously in place but also the unit could be used as a ‘ghost kitchen’ or for any number of different cuisines.

There is a decent range of equipment and fixtures and fittings that will be left in place, should the new tenant not require these they will be removed.
