I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you what a champion chippy we have right on our doorstep in Hale?
I mean I’m going to tell you again anyway…
But in exciting (and might I say exclusive) news, the National Fish and Chip Awards have realised it too!
WA14 Fish and Chips have just been announced as making it to the Top 10 shortlist in the Best Newcomer category!
Recognising the ten fish and chip shops in the UK who have made a huge impact in the industry in only their first year in business, it’s a veritable who’s who of fresh new friers!
To win a place in this shortlist, businesses must go above and beyond in their industry and I think we can all agree WA14 takes the humble chippy tea to a whole new level.
Awards organisers Seafish said
The U.K. is the home of traditional fish and chip takeaways so it’s fantastic to see new business owners challenging the norm by providing innovative business ideas and bringing in transferable skills from a diverse range of industry
WA14 Fish and Chips will now compete against the other nine businesses for the coveted title of the U.K.’s Best Newcomer as judges make the rounds as mystery diners.
So sit up straight as you never know who you’ll be sitting next to whilst waiting for your sausage to be battered!
The winner will be announced at the National Fish and Chip Awards ceremony, held in London in on 23 January 2020.
