The six-strong sausage and mash restaurant chain, S&M Café, has been put up for sale.
Operated by Smash Foods, S&M Café currently have outlets in Islington, Leadenhall Market, Portobello Road, Smithfield, Spitalfields and within the O2 in Greenwich.
The leasehold of all six sites, together with the S&M brand, is to be sold.
Simon Chaplin, director at Christie + Co, the agent which is marketing the sale, said that the business has built up a loyal following in each of its local markets, with more than 20,000 customers signed up to the brand's loyalty scheme.
"This is a unique opportunity to acquire an established group of sites situated in iconic Central London locations with significant growth potential," he said.
"These are well-maintained outlets with no notable capital expenditure requirements, which provide an immediate platform to be rolled out across London and the UK.
"Therefore, we expect this business to generate significant interest from established national and London-based operators plus private equity groups."
