The Elite progresses in Family Business Awards



The Elite Fish & Chip Company in Lincolnshire has been recognised for its contribution to the local economy by winning the regional title of Family Business of the Year in the FSB & Worldpay UK Business Awards.


Selected by a panel of representatives from the small business sector from across the UK, The Elite will now go forward to compete for the national title.

Rachel Tweedale, manager at the Sleaford branch, comments: “We’re really pleased to have been shortlisted and to be regional winners of the Family Business category in these awards. Our charitable and community work is really important to us, so to have that recognised alongside our business success is great.

“We’ve been incredibly busy in the past year. Among other things, we’ve raised more than £10,000 for charity and supported a promising young athlete, and of course our hard-working staff have served our wonderful customers with fantastic fish and chips.

“Our move in 2015 to more sustainable fishing stocks has also been something we want to shout about. If we progress further in the competition it will be a perfect platform for us to spread the positive message of eating quality, responsibly sourced seafood too!”

The awards, now in their fourth year, are open to businesses with fewer than 250 employees. They recognise and celebrate the outstanding smaller businesses in the UK, a sector that makes an overwhelming contribution to the UK’s economy and culture.

James Frost, chief marketing and commercial officer at Worldpay UK, said: “Small businesses will continue to help drive the UK economy through both their innovation and expansion. It’s critical, especially in these uncertain times, that we support and recognise their contribution to the national economic growth and applaud the hard work and commitment that goes into running your own business.”
