One Happy Frier thanks to Hewigo



The Happy Frier in Clayton-le-Woods, Lancashire, has been in the Gardner family for over 25 years. Three years ago it was passed down to the owner’s daughter Lisa, after selling her shop in nearby Astley.

It has not all been plain sailing as Lisa had to overcome a fire. Though on a positive note it gave her the opportunity to refurbish the shop completely, which included installing a new Hewigo 3-pan high efficiency Advantage counter range, together with a 2-pan wall range at the back of the serving area.

Lisa explains, “We used the area at the back of the serving area for pizzas and kebabs but came to the conclusion that these were not particularly profitable for us and that we should concentrate on the products of the traditional chippy. The small range is now used for things like sausages and alongside the high efficiency range helps us to manage the really busy times.”



Lisa has warmed to the benefits of high efficiency frying, adding: “Phillip at Hewigo said that we would easily cope with a 3-pan high efficiency range where we had a 4-pan before and he was absolutely right. It cooks the food much quicker, the filtration system is excellent and the fan-heated chip box keeps food warmer and fresher for longer.”

The range is finished with diamond shaped panels and lit with multi-programmable coloured LED.

Phillip Purkiss, managing director of Hewigo, comments: “It’s been a long association with the family and is now being carried on into a second generation. I believe that the service we have offered has very much been appreciated by father and now daughter.
