10 Dec Bennetts Fish & Chips adds £100K to sales with new look
Weymouth coast based Bennetts Fish & Chips, a JJ Food Service customer, has added a whopping £100K to turnover just eight months after a renovation to its branch in January.
Manager of the restaurant and takeaway Mark Bennett decided to inject some energy and colour into the business after taking over the reigns from his father who owns the shop. He started by re-branding the restaurant from its previous name ‘Bennetts on the Waterfront’ to ‘Bennetts Fish & Chips’, which has had an incredible response.
“Some people didn’t even realise we were a fish & chip shop”, explains Mark. “The new bright and vibrant signage is helping to attract more customers including crews from visiting ships”, he added. Further investments have been made into a modern, stylish internal décor. The investment into the new look has paid off and Mark has enjoyed a sales increase of £100K since January this year.
Bennett’s also has announced plans to grow the mobile side of the business, having already successfully catered for music festivals like Glastonbury and Chris Evan’s Carfest. “We have big plans for next year and will be taking on six new festivals in addition to the 18 that we already do,” said Mark.
