HARRY Ramsden’s – the iconic British brand, world famous for its fish and chips – is to open its newest branch in Larbert, near Falkirk today (Wednesday 20 August).
The new outlet, which becomes the brand’s fourth in Scotland, will be unveiled to the public this morning and is the first to open under the terms of the recent franchise agreement for Scotland.
Michael Langan, of Sevenseas, who were awarded the Scottish franchise earlier this year, allowing them to open 50 units within ten years, comments: “The new Harry Ramsden’s in Larbert will take the form of a ‘traditional local’, offering a wide variety of takeaway options from an extended menu which will of course include Harry Ramsden’s world famous fish and chips.
“With a catchment of over 150,000 people, we are hopeful that the high levels of trust associated with the Harry Ramsden’s name, coupled with the higher quality product offered, which can be traced from the sea to the plate, will prove popular with the residents of Larbert and beyond.”
Joe Teixeira, CEO of Harry Ramsden’s adds: ‘‘Fish and chips is arguably the nation’s favourite takeaway, selling over 255 million portions each year however to date, our limited presence has rendered us unable to satisfy demand in Scotland.
“I am therefore delighted that the first of many outlets in Scotland will soon be opening, bringing Harry Ramsden’s back into the heart of towns, cities and suburbs across the country.”
It is also confirmed that a number of other sites across the country including Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Ayrshire and the Highlands are currently being explored and assessed for their suitability as full-service restaurants with takeaway facilities, as well as smaller ‘traditional locals’.
