No, we're not flipping burgers, but have negotiated the sale of roadside site in Yeovil to McDonalds
One of few guilty pleasures of this lock down has been the take-away meal and this industry has boomed over the pandemic. You will be pleased to know Symonds & Sampson won’t be expanding into “flippin’ burgers or the like ” but we do do all things real estate including advisory on retail and fast food.
McDonalds (Restaurants Limited) have recently completed the purchase from our clients FJ Chalke on the former Motor Dealership in Sherborne Road, having developed and move to their new site in Lysander Way. Work has already commenced on a new drive through restaurant, a second in Yeovil.
Commercial Surveyor Jan Merriott advises that this type of transaction can be put together by specialist agents, or in certain cases direct with the end user, which in this case was McDonalds. "Transactions like these are quite often done quietly away from the open market and involve planning applications as part of the negotiations. It also involves keeping an open mind - in this case we were initially advertising the property for lease".
If you are considering a business relocation or wish to investigate potential uses for a site, please contact Jan on 01305 261008.
