Howe and Co 22 is named top 10 mobile unit in the UK by Fry MagazineBy indya Clayton – Reporter
A FISH and chips van that serves Oxfordshire villages has been named one of the UK’s 10 Best Mobile Fish & Chip Operators.
Howe and Co 22 have been recognised by leading trade publication, Fry Magazine, after an extensive search to find mobiles serving up the finest fish suppers.
To make the list, Jamie Bachman and Charlotte King, owners of the van, had to impress a mystery diner who visited unannounced and marked the van on over 40 aspects of their business from the quality of the food and customer service to cleanliness and value for money.
Howe and Co 22’s mystery diner particularly praised the quality of the fish and batter achieving 100% in both categories.
The fish and chips van which is based in Little Horwood serves Horspath, Wheatley, Littleworth, Forest Hill and Thame.
Mr Bachman said: “It’s a great honour to have received this recognition from such a well known magazine in the industry. Both myself and Charlotte love our job and seeing so many regular customers each week.
“Our franchise has only been operating for 2 years. This award gives us an opportunity to see what we do well and also what we can improve for next year.
Reece Head, competition organiser, said: “The eating out market is more competitive than ever. We are proud of all the winners. They operate top of the range vehicles with state-of-the-art equipment, they are professional, they turn up when they say, where they say, and serve a product that is as good as any meal you would get from a fish and chip takeaway or restaurant.”
