Harry Ramsden’s to Create 100 New Jobs with Tower Investment

As the result of a £2,000,000 investment by Harry Ramsden’s, the world famous fish and chip brand is currently working with the local council and Merlin Entertainment to create its “Flagship of the North” within Blackpool Tower.

The iconic British brand is set to relocate its staff and operation to much larger premises within the landmark Blackpool venue - a move which will secure the employment of its 30 strong team and bring an additional 100 new full and part-time jobs to the area.

Restoration work at the Tower, which is being carried out predominantly by local tradesmen, is already underway. Upon completion, 7,500 sq ft at ground level and a further 1,500 sq ft on the fifth floor will be transformed to create three exciting new outlets, offering seating for 500 diners.

Whilst it is anticipated that one of the eateries will be operational by the Spring, all three restaurants - one of which will mark the unveiling of a brand new family focused Harry Ramsden’s concept - will be opened in time for the summer season.

Joe Teixeira, CEO of Harry Ramsden’s comments; “With the town continuing to attract record numbers of visitors, we believe the time is right to further invest in Blackpool. We are delighted that, as a result of this decision, not only are jobs being secured but new jobs are being created. We are especially pleased that so many of the people currently working on the project are locally based, this in itself gives an immediate boost to the Blackpool economy.”

Blackpool Council is contributing £400,000 toward building works and Councillor Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development said “We are delighted to be able to finally announce details of this important development. The private investment being made in Blackpool’s most prominent public asset and the jobs it creates is yet another demonstration of the steps the town has taken in creating a vibrant economy. This is a clear message to potential developers – Blackpool is the town to invest in.”

Kate Shane, Head of the Merlin Blackpool Cluster added “This is a hugely exciting event for Blackpool Tower and the resort as a whole. The new restaurant and eateries perfectly complement the Tower attractions, will enhance the customers experience significantly and of course completes the ground floor redevelopment of this very special building. This development represents yet another feature cementing Blackpool as the UK’s number one family destination. ”

Joe Teixeira adds; “Having served the generations for over 85 years, at Harry Ramsden’s, we pride ourselves on being a family brand. Within Blackpool Tower, as well as memorable visit to a world class attraction, we aim to create an equally memorable dining experience for local and visiting families, in surroundings which the local community can be extremely proud.”
