A showpiece



Pro Fry had the chance to show off what it was capable of producing when it exhibited at the Fish Frying & Fast Food Show in Coventry earlier this month


This month Pro Fry had the pleasure of attending Fry Magazine’s Fish Frying & Fast Food Show at Stoneleigh Park in Coventry. We had a wonderful time with all the other companies showcasing their amazing products and services. It was great to see some familiar faces and new faces at the show, thank you to everyone who took the time to come and visit. These events are a great place to go to see what products are out there to help you expand and evolve your business, so if you missed this one, be sure to keep an eye out for the next show!

We were able to take a beautiful fish and chip trailer with us to the event, which contained one of our latest models of the Regal mobile frying range. These recently updated ranges now have the temperature gauges built in, which means operators no longer manually check the heat on their pans, it’s all displayed for them. They are still built from the same sturdy, high quality stainless as before, with a heated top box to display your cooked product. Not only this but we were able to show off the latest trailer build (now sold) where we use top grade stainless throughout, along with high quality, reliable appliances inside.

We had with us Daniel from The Mobile Chip Shop, who has been running a Pro Fry van build for a while now. He’s a great example of how successful mobile fish and chips can be. He was able to talk to visitors on how he has become so successful; one of the reasons being due to the fact he can cook a consistent product thanks to the Pro Fry fat filtration machine. Daniel not only has a weekly round, but also does events where he has been back-to-back throughout the summer period. His secret to consistency is filtering his pans after every night of frying, keeping his lovely golden fat without all the nasty bits of debris and carbon.

We were also able to discuss the 2019 Fry Awards, which this year opened up to mobile caterers with the Top 10 Mobile Units category. Entry is closed for this year, so shortly those units that did enter will be receiving a mystery visitor! Each mobile unit will be marked to the same criteria to ensure a fair end result. If you have entered and you are unsure what is expected from a mobile unit, then make sure to reach out and get some advice. Customers have expectations when going to get a takeaway, along with food hygiene laws, that should be met. Make sure your vehicle meets these requirements, along with being up-to-date with the latest payment methods and equipment to stand a good chance of being in the Top 10!

Good luck everyone and we look forward to seeing the winners early 2019.
