Business is better than ever for Fish King in North Hykeham, Lincoln, after closing its restaurant and repurposing the space to serve click and collect and walk-in orders from a new five pan Kiremko island range
In the 25 years that Fish King has been in business, it has never undergone such a dramatic change as this summer when owner Chris Frangeskou closed the 30 seater restaurant, spun the whole shop around and put in a larger frying range. The idea was to meet the growing demand for click and collect, a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Back in March, we initially closed for five weeks,” explains Chris. “We were one of the only fish and chip shops that reopened around here so the queues were astronomical. We put in click and collect and we were smashing it. I was doing 200-230 click and collect orders a day. Not only that, but we were doing what we would do over ten hours in four hours.”
