When a second generation fish and chip business wanted professional workwear for its team, it turned to sixth generation hospitality clothing specialists, Russums.
Rotherham-based Russums was approached by Mike Shaw from Shaws Fish and Chips of Dodworth and was asked for its advice about good looking, practical workwear for its team.
Russums' quality products and personal approach were key reasons for the partnership, said Shaws Fish and Chips owner Mike Shaw.
"Quality ingredients and outstanding customer service is what drives our business and we expect that from our suppliers too,” he said.
"We are so committed to sourcing the best quality ingredients that we regularly travel to Iceland to visit the trawlers that we buy our fish from, and it's important to us that the staff workwear looks as good as our fish and chips taste."
Russums sales and marketing manager John-Paul Marsden worked with Mike to choose a stylish, contemporary look that was practical for use with hot fat.
He comments: ”We chose a smart, easy to wear chambray shirt with a dark grey tunic tabard wrap for the serving staff and white aprons for the friers. Everything was hand-made in our Yorkshire sewing rooms and was finished off with an embroidered logo."
Mike concluded: "We're delighted with the bespoke uniforms that Russums made for us. Nothing was too much trouble and John-Paul went out of his way to make sure that everything fitted perfectly and that the team was happy."
Russums is a leading supplier of clothing and equipment to the hospitality industry, supplying chefs and food service workers throughout the UK and Europe.
