A Lincolnshire chippy is in the final of two categories at this year's Federation of Small Businesses Celebrating Small Business Awards 2019 after winning the regional finals.
The Elite Fish & Chip Company, which has outlets in Ruskington, Lincoln and Sleaford, scooped area finalist for the East Midlands in both the Family Business of the Year award as well as the Community Business of the Year award.
Members of staff will now head to the final on Thursday 23rd May at Battersea Evolution, London, where the category winners and FSB Business of the Year 2019 will be announced.
Rachel Tweedale, co-director at The Elite Fish & Chip Company, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been named East Midlands Family Business of the Year for a second year in a row!
“Last year we celebrated our 30th anniversary year and as part of the celebrations we committed to a £30,000 fundraising campaign to be split equally between three charities which all have a close connection to the Elite. To have our fundraising efforts recognised with the Community Business of the Year Award is the icing on the cake for us!
“We wouldn’t have won these awards without the hardwork and dedication of all our loyal staff - and it goes without saying that we wouldn’t have been able to reach our ambitious £30,000 fundraising target without the generosity of our loyal customers, who always show us their full support for worthy causes.”
