We are no ordinary training academy. Our premises in Market Deeping have been built to the highest standards of design and hygiene. Established in 2010, the KFE School of Frying Excellence was developed with award winning fish and chip shop friers and an Environmental Health consultant. Whether you’re a new or existing frier, our courses are perfect for learning new skills and developing new techniques to advance your existing ones.
Informative, interesting and all within a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Great basics for anyone new to the trade but many tips that I think the most experienced frier can benefit from.
See the school in action!
With a combined 100 years of frying, building and managing quality fish and chip shop businesses, our trade dedicated team of trainers are all Fish and Chip Shop of the Year winners.

We’re very pleased to be able to share some feedback from past students
‘We had the privilege of attending KFE’s School of Frying Excellence in Market Deeping which really set us in good stead for commencing our journey into the Fish and chip industry. To have been taught everything to do with running a successful fish and chip business by people who themselves, have run multi award winning shops and restaurants was invaluable to us.’
‘It was great to attend the KFE School of frying Excellence and refresh a lot of old skills and improve my overall knowledge. The training was excellent, trainers were friendly, knowledgable and are great characters. The marketing section was the most helpful along with the practical sessions, both were very much enjoyable. I would highly recommend to others to attend even if like myself you have been in the trade for many years.’
‘Great place and great trainers! Thanks to everyone who helped on the course, we found all the trainers extremely knowledgeable and helpful and have taken a vast amount of knowledge away from the course.’
‘The course was very enjoyable, well worth the drive from Devon; lovely people and great new ideas including management skills and more frying skills.’
‘As a newcomer to the industry the course as a whole was very helpful and enlightening.’
