Staff from the family-run business, which has outlets in Ruskington, Lincoln and Sleaford, were presented with the accolade on Saturday at a ceremony at the iconic Wembley Stadium.
Adrian Tweedale, director at the Elite Fish & Chip Company, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won the national title for the food and drink Family Business of the Year! This award win is the highest accolade for a family business – and we’re thrilled to be adding more silverware to our trophy cabinet.
“We wouldn’t be where we are without our hardworking and dedicated staff, as well as our amazing customers who have shown loyalty to us over the last 30 years. This award tops off what has been a hugely successful time for our business after we raised more than £32,000 for three wonderful charities to mark our 30th anniversary.”
The accolade follows a string of awards this year as well as the announcement that Elite will be opening a fourth restaurant and takeaway in Lincoln’s historic Bailgate later this year.
The National Family Business Awards recognise the very best in family-owned businesses across the UK and Ireland.
