Lincolnshire chippy named Family Business of the Year



The Elite Fish & Chip Company has been named East Midlands Family Business of the Year at the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018.


The family-run firm, which has three restaurants and takeaways in Lincoln, Ruskington and Sleaford, is now heading to the national final at the Westminster Park Plaza in London on Thursday 3rd May.

The awards showcase the best small businesses from the length and breadth of the country and promote and recognise innovation, enterprise and accomplishment amongst the UK’s 5.5 million-strong small business and the self-employed sector.

Elite director Rachel Tweedale said: “We are really excited to be named Family Business of the Year especially on our 30th anniversary year. Our staff were over the moon when we got back with the award which will take pride of place at our Ruskington restaurant.

“We managed to get to the national final last year for our charity work, but this year we can hopefully go one better and be recognised as the UK's ‘best of the best’!”

The Elite was founded by David and Freda Tweedale, Rachel’s grandparents, and three generations now have a say in the running of the business.
