Craig Buckley National Young Fish Frier of the Year 2011

3 Pan Generation 4 High Efficiency Flat Top Counter Range with Extra Wide 4 Basket Capacity Pans

We met Craig Buckley at the 2011 Henry Colbeck fish fryers show at Newcastle where he expressed his interest in the Hopkins flat top high efficiency frying range. Craig had recently won the prestigious Young Fish Frier of the Year Awardat the annual National Fish and Chip Awards which is run by Drywite and the NFFF. Craig was planning his second shop and we were happy to help in the layout, design and specification of the fish and chip shop equipment he would require.

After fierce competition from a number of the other prominent frying range manufacturers, also in the frame as preferred supplier, we were delighted to win the order. The new equipment was installed in early October 2011 where Craig opted for our generation 4 flat top high efficiency counter frying range.  The low noise fan and silencer satisfied the stipulation of the local authorities to comply with health regulations.

Craig also ordered a Hopkins HP25/56 peeler, Hopkins HC1 chipper, Hopkins stainless steel eyeing tank, Hopkins Stainless steel interceptor tank (sludge trap), Hopkins stainless steel fish prep station, and XL wet fish refrigerator.

The new fish and chip shop is already a great success with customers queuing out of the door on opening day and business exceeding expectations.

We wish Craig all the best for the future.
