Full shop refurb with a bespoke High Efficiency frying range

Ed and Jade took over Festival Way Fish Bar in the autumn of 2022 and set out on a mission to revitalise the shop with a  comprehensive refurbishment. The objective was to provide the shop with a full ‘back to the bricks’ refresh to help maximise its potential.  This involved upgrading all of the existing equipment.

Quality at a fair price

Appreciating the significance of a high-quality frying range at the heart of their business, one of their first calls was to leading British manufacturer Mallinson’s of Oldham.

Having fried on and owned Mallinson’s ranges in the past, they knew that Mallinson’s would provide a high quality frying range with exceptional value for money.

Mallinson’s proposal of a new bespoke 3 pan High Efficiency counter range was perfect for the requirements of this busy shop. Ed commented, “The whole process from start to finish was so smooth with Mallinson’s.  We already had a view of the ideal range for the shop and with a few minor tweaks to the configuration we were good to go.  In fact the only challenge we faced during our discussions was our decision on the perfect style for the range front.”

Mallinson’s offer a diverse array of options for frontages for new ranges.  All ranges come with smart LED lights as standard. Customers can choose from a stainless steel curved ‘bolero’ finish, a heat resistant vinyl print and there is also a huge choice of modern laminate fronts.  Ed and Jade decided on a contemporary grained wood to perfectly complement the shop’s aesthetic.

6 months on and Jade is really pleased with the outcome: “We couldn’t be happier, we’ve received so much positivity from the local community on the shop’s makeover.  Even before trying our fish and chips, customers are showering us with positive feedback as soon as they walk through our doors.”


Mallinson’s pride themselves on the high quality of their ranges and value for money.  If you’re in the market for a new bespoke High Efficiency range, get in touch on 01706299000 or click here to find out more
