Harry Ramsden's is searching for multi-site franchise developers as is looks to increase its presence in the UK market in what is its 90th anniversary year.
The brand currently operates over 40 restaurants in the UK but following a program of reinvigoration, which has refreshed the brand's look and feel, restaurants and menu, it is hoping to increase this further.
Judd William's, international development director with Boparan Restaurant Group, which owns the Harry Ramsden's brand, explains "Harry Ramsden's is the best-known fish and chip brand in the UK, and is the brand most closely associated with fish and chips around the world. Harry's iconic brand is renowned for both its quality and service which makes it stand in the sector.
"Given the increasing importance consumers are placing on provenance, quality and taste when making their dining choices, and the growing popularity of convenience, we see this as the perfect time to expand the brand. Harry's has just gone through an extensive refresh and rebrand, thus making it even more appealing to an ever-growing market. For experienced branded F&B multi-site operators we believe that Harry Ramsden is a highly compelling franchise opportunity.
"We have a number of restaurant formats available, that include quick service and assisted service models which drive higher unit profit through faster, more efficient service encouraging higher footfall, especially during busier times. There has never been a more perfect time to become part of the Harry's family and hit the ground running with your very own fish and chip franchise.”
Harry Ramsden's is specifically looking for multi-site franchisees and currently has opportunities across the UK, including urban, coastal and tourist locations.
