Last year we were excited to announce the launch of the KFE Family Scholarship. As a company, we’re always very keen to invest back into the industry, which is why we put the Scholarship together. It’s a unique programme designed to help the successful candidate, the owner of fish and chip shop or restaurant based in the UK, to realise his or her ambitions.
Entry to the Scholarship was free of charge, giving all fish and chip shop owners the opportunity to benefit from advice, training and knowledge from leading suppliers and customers.
We were really impressed by the standard of entries. After a careful consideration, we reached a shortlist of three finalists and Paul Williams, MD of KFE and National Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Winner, Mark Petrou, visited all three to discuss their entries. All three finalists truly deserved to win and it was very hard to come to a decision, but we are proud to announce that the winners of the first KFE Family Scholarship are Nadine and Simon Morriss of Margate in Kent.
