Owner of Auckley Friery, David Nicolaou, is pleased to say that business is booming since he has reopened his chippy.
He said: “We have been really busy, especially with online orders.
“But we have had to completely change how we have done business for the last 16 years.
“We have introduced social distancing measures into the shop which means people have to wait outside the shop before they can order.”
David has also installed polycarbonate screens and is encouraging contactless payments.
“It seems that cash is going out of fashion thanks to the virus but it makes it safer and easier for us.”
David says that he has had help from the National Federation of Fish Friers and Public Health England to ensure that he is running the chip shop in a way that is complying with government standards.
“The reaction from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive even though they have had to queue for longer and wait for their food they have been happy to have us back open,” David continued.
“But we have made up for that by using social media as a way to connect with our customers.”
David recently found out that his business had made it into the top 50 shops in the UK according to Fry Magazine who gave them a score of 100% when they came out to visit and test the food.
Auckley Friery is open on a click and collect basis and all food is cooked to order.
