WiFC conference sold out six weeks ahead of schedule

The organisers of Women in Fish and Chips (WiFC), a JJ Foodservice event designed to support female fish and chip shop owners and aspiring managers, have announced a sell-out for the one day workshop taking place in Birmingham on 13th January 2020.

The news comes as organisers add three new speakers to the line-up.

Suzi Pegg-Darlison, market insight analyst at Seafish, will be revealing the ‘Key Trends and Opportunities’ in the eating out sector with a particular focus on seafood, while employee retention expert Alan McColm will reveal the practical tools he used to help the Real Food Café in Tyndrum, Perthshire, to thrive.

And finally, Janet Colclough, owner of Nana Jans, a modern fish and chip shop in Buckshaw Village, Chorley, will reveal how she has applied her background in retail and logistics to deliver an eye-catching, high-tech customer journey.

They join three further speakers: Kelly Barnes, joint owner of Krispies in Exmouth and current holder of Fish & chip Shop of the Year; Caroline Murphy, director of the Wetherby Whaler, one of Yorkshire’s most recognised brands with five award-winning branches; and Lesley Graves, co-owner of Burton Road Chippy in Lincoln.

Terry Larkin, group general manager for JJ Foodservice, comments: “We care passionately about the fish and chip shop sector and want to provide all the support we can to ensure our customers succeed.

“The event will provide a friendly, informal network for like-minded women to meet and connect, helping individuals to thrive on both a personal and professional level.”
