Fiveways moves forward with full-on refurbishment 

Home » Shop Re-Fits/Designs » Fiveways moves forward with full-on refurbishment 

Fiveways in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, has undergone a major refurbishment with all fresh decor and a host of new technology. 

The busy takeaway now features digital menu boards, a digital screen in the window and a two-door drinks fridge on the customer side as well as dedicated click and collect and ordering stations. A new island range has replaced the previous counter range, freeing up floor space, while modern EPoS systems and a self-serve kiosk take orders quickly and efficiently.

With the project requiring everything stripped out and new plumbing, electrics, floors and ceilings, owners Sugar and Theo Efthymiou chose Barland Shopfitting to make their ideas a reality.

Sugar comments: “We bought the shop in 1997 and although this is our second refurb, it was already feeling dated so it needed upgrading and bringing up-to-date with technology. We shopped around for shopfitters and settled on Barland because of their experience working with other fish and chip shops.”

While Sugar had many of her own ideas – drawn from years of visiting takeaways and restaurants both here and on holidays in Cyprus – she also had help from her daughter, an interior designer, and her son-in-law, an architect, making the project a family affair.  

She adds: “We’ve been doing this a long, long time so we knew what we wanted and how to do the layout and so forth. Barland has given us exactly what we wanted and they were full on, even working the Bank Holiday Monday to get us open, which was great.

“I love the new shop. We’ve got so much more room now and the digital menus mean we can do adverts at Christmas, Easter, Halloween etc. The dedicated collection counter is ready for us to do call & collect and click and collect so customers won’t have to wait in the queue. They can just go straight to the collection point and pick up their food.”

Since reopening, Fiveways has seen an uplift in trade with many new faces coming in and lunchtimes significantly busier. Sugar adds: “I was serving one Friday and I heard customers saying how clean and fresh everything looked. Although we were a clean shop before, because it was quite dated, customers didn’t always see that. Since the refurbishment, it’s the first thing they comment on.”
