Our MD Paul Williams started KFE in 1996 in a bedroom above his family’s fish and chip shop in Market Deeping.
Today we’re very proud to say that our family business is the range company of choice for award winning fish and chip shops.
With our nationwide sales and engineering team and our School of Frying Excellence, we’ve brought together an incredible mix of talented and knowledgeable individuals, allowing us to offer an unrivalled package of quality, reliability and expertise to the Fish and Chip frying range market.
Our relationship with our manufacturer and industry partner QBTEC continues to go from strength to strength. As Europe’s biggest producer of professional cooking and frying installations they work in close partnership with our KFE team to find solutions for each of our customers, reinforcing the quality and bespoke nature of our ranges
During our amazing journey over the last 20+ years, we have been lucky enough to build an incredible extended family. This not only includes our own team and customers but also the wonderful industry partners that we work with on a daily basis to drive the future of fish and chips.
‘The Frying range is THE key component in your business, the engine room that drives it forward and the decision on which equipment to install is one of the most important you will ever make. The investment is similar to that of a good quality car BUT you won’t be changing this in 2-3 years. Price is obviously important but you must consider savings that could be made with certified high efficiency pans and filtration, the importance of aftersales service support and, if you are new to the business, the help and support offered by The School of Frying Excellence.’
Paul Williams, KFE Managing Director
