The Cod’s Scallops has opened its latest branch in West Bridgford, Nottingham.
The 40 cover restaurant and takeaway sits on a new £20 million retail park. It is the sixth addition to The Cod’s Scallops growing portfolio and the third in Nottingham.
Opening its doors on Monday 11th April, the branch is staffed by a team of 22 new recruits with the manager, assistant manager and frier moving across from other sites.
The menu boasts the same choice of fresh sustainable fish and seafood, homemade pies, salads and desserts as its sister locations as well as two new additions. One is a light lunch meal deal that includes a tray of chips, sausage or cheese and onion fry it, plus a drink, while the second is a sashimi grade tuna and superfood salad with an Asian-style dressing. The latter has been calorie and macro counted and includes 110g of carbs, 926 calories, 84g of protein and 14g of fat. It’s hoped it will catch the attention of those using the two gyms on the retail park with The Cod’s Scallops offering a 10% discount on the dish to members.
Owner John Molnar comments: “It’s been a fantastic start. We knew we would busy, opening in the run up to Easter and especially on Good Friday, so we had the full team on and I was very happy with the volume we did.
“We have a good name in Nottingham so we weren’t surprised to see a lot of the people were regulars from our other shops or customers who are nearer to this one, but we’ve also seen a lot of new faces too.”
With handover of the building ready the week before opening, John was able to put the team through its paces. He adds: “We already had a lot of the staff trained at our other sites but what we also did here was bring a couple of staff over from Mansfield Road for the new team members to mirror. That worked really well.”
