9th January, 2019
As most of you will know, 2018 was a momentous year for everybody at The Elite Fish & Chip Company as we celebrated our 30th anniversary – and what a year it was! As part of the celebrations we embarked on a year-long fundraising campaign to raise £30,000 across three charities, signifying each year in business in Lincolnshire.
Following the success of our 30th anniversary year, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re kicking 2019 off on the right foot too as we’ve been named as the only business to be featured in The Book of Amazing People!
Numerous applications were reviewed, and the very best inspiring stories were selected. After a few interviews our business success story managed to make the final cut and we now have our own dedicated chapter in the prestigious book, which is a ground-breaking project showcasing individual achievement and featuring inspiring real-life stories.
The chapter tells the story behind the success of our brand, from the very beginning to the present day, and gives an insight into the hard work, commitment and dedication that was shown by our co-founders David and Freda Tweedale. Without giving too much away, the book explains what goes into running a successful business and touches on what life was like for our family in Huddersfield before uprooting to Lincolnshire for a new start.
It was quite emotional putting our chapter in the book together as it meant that we, as a family, were able to reflect and retrace the steps that helped us to get to where we are today. In our 30-year history we’ve been lucky enough to experience many highs, but our success hasn’t come without challenges.
Just last month, the Book of Amazing People featured in My Entrepreneur Magazine as December’s book of the month. If you’d like to find out more about the book or would like to purchase a copy, visit: http://voilasuccess.com/index.php/products-page/inspirational/the-book-of-amazing-people-2/.
We’re so proud of all the achievements in our 30-year history – we hope you enjoy reading it as much as we loved putting it together!
We’d also like to say thank you to everyone who supported us throughout 2018. Don’t forget, we’ll be raising money for The RAF Association, the RNLI and Sleaford Dementia Support Group up until March so please keep digging deep and help us to reach our £30,000 fundraising target. Here’s to 2019!
