‘Quite a few of our staff have been with us for years too. Jimmy at Captain’s has been with us twenty-four years and Danny, who’s also at Captain’s, has been with us eighteen years now. It’s great for us, customers like to see faces they recognise. Across four shops we employ around 60 people.
As for me, I love the contact with my customers. Couldn’t imagine being anywhere other than in the shop on a Friday night!
We haven’t entered for the 2020 Awards, we need time out to build on what we achieved last year, but for anyone reading this and thinking about entering the National and Chip Awards in the future, I’d say do it! Give yourself time to get prepared and make sure you’re really happy with how you’re doing, then go all out to win an Award. You won’t look back.’
