Case Study: Harry Ramsden's, Shipley
Jointly founded by local entrepreneurs Vikesh and Dimple Patel and the Harry Ramsden’s organisation as part of our UK franchise programme, the opening of the outlet in Shipley sees the brand return to its spiritual roots at the heart of West Yorkshire. The Patels, who own JVP ventures, opted for our Local Takeaway franchise outlet, and in doing so brought 10 full and part time jobs to the local area. The takeaway restaurant successfully opened on Wrose Road, Shipley, on the 2nd of April 2015 and has already seen customers coming through the doors in droves, all seeking out our inimitable, world famous fish and chips.
As you can see from the picture, the Harry Ramsden’s team made a splash in the area by inviting local customers, and even some council officials, to our big opening event. We were delighted to see the Lord Mayor of Bradford getting involved behind the scenes, but unfortunately he’s a bit too busy to join our team full time! He did, of course, sample one of our delicious fish dishes. Vikesh Patel comments: "Speaking as a Yorkshire man, I am absolutely thrilled to bring Harry Ramsden’s back to the home of its founder. Our Shipley outlet takes the form of a 'traditional local' which is designed to serve the local community and this will be the first of many. We are actively seeking various sites across the region where we can open more locals, as well as larger, 'destination restaurants' and already have two further openings planned for later this year."
The Shipley store represents the first of many initiatives to expand Harry Ramsden’s presence throughout Yorkshire, and indeed the UK, through our ambitious franchise development scheme.
