FAQ

Is there any paperwork to fill in?

No, all you do is enter on this website by filling in the details required and we do the rest.

When will our shop be visited by a mystery diner?

We do not tell shops when you will be visited, this gives you as owners a true representation of your shop and the service your customers receive.

What do we do once we fill in the form to enter?

All you have to do is keep an eye on the website www.frymagazine.com or in Fry Magazine for news and updates about when the results are out. We post you your score cards for your records with a detailed report and if you make the list you then get your certificate and window poster.

I have more than one shop can I enter both?

There is a section under the entry page outlining the rules. If you have more than one shop you are allowed to enter two shops in each section two in 50 BEST Takeaways and two in 10 BEST Restaurants. That is all that you are allowed. 

I have more than one mobile unit can I enter them all?

There is a section below outlining the rules. If you have more than one unit you are allowed to enter two units. That is all that you are allowed. 

What happens if we do not make the list?

You enter anonymously so only you know that you have entered the competition. A list of the successful shops are published. If you do not make the list no body except yourselves are aware of that. You can then look at the scorecard and improve or change anything you feel you need to and if you want to try again you can re-enter the next year.
