FISH & CHIP AWARDS
In January of 2016 we were invited to attend the national fish & chip awards in London. We were invited as a member of the final 3 for the 'Best Mobile Operator' award category and had been vetted by national judges to get to this point. The process involved the judges looking at our social media pages, website and then a few mystery shopper visits where they would be looking at everything from our appearance and presentation and of course the quality of our food.
At the ceremony we enjoyed a three course meal in the surroundings of a 4* hotel. With national media in attendance and representatives from all the different trades involved in the fish and chip industry from the wholesalers, packaging manufacturers through to the fishermen who keep the industry thriving. It was a fantastic experience.
We were runners up for our category for 2016 and although disappointed not to have won, we set our sights on improving as a business throughout the whole process. The awards were a real eye opener and we aim to continue to focus on the people that matter to us most, our customers.
Throughout 2016 we continued our growth from the previous years and had our most successful year to date. This led us to making the finals of the National Fish & chip awards again in 2017. Once again making the top 3 and attending the final in London. Unfortunately we were to come runners up once again. However feeling empowered by what the judges and fellow finalists had to say about the industry going forward, we are genuinely excited. We have huge plans for 2017 including sourcing new eco packaging, sourcing a whole British product range from the fisherman and farmer through the the customer we aim to be more innovative and more unique than ever. If the customer wants it, we aim to provide it.
So from those of you that buy fish and chips just occasionally from us or those whom are weekly regulars through to those who use us for private catering at weddings, birthday parties and corporate events. We endeavour to improve our service to you and to continue to bring you the best fish and chips that money can buy.
If this brings us closer to the awards again next year then that would simply be an additional bonus!
Here's to the future!
