The former hardware store in Uckfield High Street could be turned into a pizza restaurant and takeaway.
It would be part of Surrey-based Caprinos which has 30 outlets across the country and in Wales.
Chris Lawson of commercial agents Lawson Commercial said the premises at 21c High Street are under offer but the legal process is taking a very long time to go through at the moment.
Chris said: “It is taking at least three months through from Heads of Terms to the point of completion.”
This news follows hot on the heels another announcement from Lawson Commercial about KFC being interested in opening a restaurant and takeaway at the former Goodwins betting office at Bell Walk, Uckfield.
