A chain of themed restaurants with its largest site in West Dunbartonshire has been put up for sale for £1.3million. 

Dinosaur-themed Jurassic Grill opened on the shores of Loch Lomond just eleven months ago but now - along with three other branches in England - the venue has gone on the market after a change in personal circumstances for the owners. 

They have instructed Blacks Business Brokers to market the business.

Founded in 2019 by Jozef Mordawska and Natalie Matts, Jurassic Grill has since expanded to Kettering, Northamptonshire and Whiteley near Fareham. 

All four restaurants are known for their lavish prehistoric-style decoration and dinosaur-themed menus, while the Loch Lomond venue also includes the UK’s first Ice Age-themed cocktail and dessert bar.

Situated within the Loch Lomond Shores Shopping Centre in Balloch, the restaurant seats a total of 150 customers indoors and 84 outdoors.

The four premises incur a combined annual rent of £360,000 and employ 67 staff plus a further nine managers.

In its most recent financial year, Jurassic Alive Ltd posted a turnover of £1.59 million, achieving a gross profit of £1.05 million.

The projected turnover for the financial year ending 30 November 2023 is £3.2 million.

A new owner could explore the possibility of expanding Jurassic Grill on a wider national and even global scale. 

Callum Pollard, associate director at Blacks Business Brokers, said: “Over a period of just four years our clients have built a really significant business. It has a unique theme, great locations, and superb reviews online.

“The Jurassic Grill brand is just getting started and has already sparked interest that could lead to international expansion, so there is amazing potential here for a new owner, whether that be an existing hospitality group, an entrepreneur or an investor, to take these foundations and build the next big thing in casual dining.

"On a day-to-day basis, the staff and managers are delivering an offering that is proving incredibly popular, so the opportunity here really is massive.”
