Chip shop in the top 10 of new­com­ers

Herald Express - - Down Your Way -

NEW Paign­ton take­away the Paign­ton Pier Chippy has made it through to the fi­nal of a pres­ti­gious na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

The chippy is in the fi­nal 10 in the Best New­comer cat­e­gory in the 2019 Na­tional Fish and Chip Awards.

The awards are run by Seafish, the pub­lic body that sup­ports the £10bn UK seafood in­dus­try.

The Paign­ton Pier Chippy opened in May this year de­spite be­ing badly dam­aged in its own fire the week be­fore it opened its doors.

It has been judged against a va­ri­ety of cri­te­ria in­clud­ing: the level of in­no­va­tion dis­played when run­ning a fish and chip shop, knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of sus­tain­abil­ity and re­spon­si­ble sourc­ing of prod­ucts, cus­tomer ser­vice lev­els and the qual­ity of fish and chips they serve.

For the next stage, judges will make unan­nounced mys­tery din­ing vis­its where they will care­fully ex­am­ine each of the busi­nesses, to de­ter­mine the top three new­com­ers.

The fi­nal­ists will then com­pete for the ti­tle at the Na­tional Fish & Chip Awards cer­e­mony in Lon­don in Jan­uary.
