MeatBox is a standout, turnkey opportunity in the local takeaway food scene that is now available for purchase, specialising in gourmet burgers, loaded fries and seasonal specials alongside classic weekend breakfast staples. Currently in its eighth year of trading, the business has garnered a reputation within the surrounding community as a reliably excellent takeaway. The business has continued to grow, attracting repeat custom from both locals of Castlerock, Limavady and Coleraine and many who come from in between and farther afield. As a recipient of national industry awards and member of the Taste Causeway group, maintaining promotion and an interest in local events and opportunities has reinforced a strong brand and reputation from the outset.

It is the sincerest hope that new owners will continue to benefit from the strong relationships and brand that have been proudly established while bringing their own ideas and energy to continue moving this exciting business forward.

​​Location Benefits

Castlerock Holiday Park has proven to be an excellent location for MeatBox. It sees regular foot traffic from neighbouring static and mobile caravan pitches, our proximity to the railway station, nearby beach and golf club draws passing custom, ample parking spaces and the provision of outdoor seating in the form of picnic benches also make us an attractive option to customers from further afield.

MeatBox has fostered a good working relationship with the holiday park owners whose land we are pitched on. Maintaining a private pitch agreement benefits the current business model as there is quick and reliable access for any maintenance required.

The sale will be subject to agreement being reached between the three parties involved who are: the seller, the purchaser and the owners of Castlerock Holiday Park. This is to ensure that service levels and mutual agreements are maintained which are the cornerstone of the success at the current site. We will offer introductions between interested purchasers and the land owners after initial discussions.

The MeatBox Difference
