Why Harry Ramsden's?

There are numerous franchise businesses for sale in the UK, so what makes a fish and chip franchise with Harry Ramsden’s different? Put simply: our heritage. We’re no overnight sensation or ‘fast food franchise fad’ - we’ve been at the forefront of the restaurant and takeaway sector for almost a century, and the fantastic food we serve isn’t going out of fashion any time soon...

With Britain spending in the region of £1.2 billion on fish and chips annually, our prominence in the industry means that we are a dominant force in the highly lucrative food service sales league.

As one of the world's most recognised and iconic British brands, we are without question the name most closely associated with fish and chips globally. This hasn’t happened by chance – we’ve worked tirelessly and passionately for over 85 years, serving generation after generation of families (often several generations at the same time!) in order to secure our place as the UK's longest established restaurant chain.

We now have ambitions to become the UK’s most successful restaurant franchise, and we’re both delighted and excited to be giving people like yourself the opportunity to share in (and, indeed, help create) this success.

Not only has our business stood the test of time, but we have a recognisable brand promise along with excellent brand awareness – meaning that your audience is engaged and full of positive expectation before you’ve even opened the doors, whether you’re a restaurant or takeaway franchise. This does, of course, mean that you and your team have to rise to these expectations, but that’s the fun, not-to-mention highly-rewarding part!
