Oor Wullie’s Braw Fish and Chips, Aberdeen, April 2021

Bringing Oor Wullie’s personality to life

Aberdeen entrepreneur, Craig Thomson, wanted to revamp his famous Oor Wullie-themed chip shop in the Mannofield area of the granite city. This unique shop needed a new frying range and serving counters to welcome customers old and new.

Mallinson’s visited Aberdeen to discuss the brief with Craig and came away with a number of clear priorities – the range had to be simple, reliable, safe and easy to maintain and great to look at. It had to facilitate easy interaction with customers (ie not be too high) and it had to be made to measure for the available space. Plus of course the ongoing customer service had to be of the highest standard.

The result was a 5-pan range with an L-shaped stainless steel counter, slightly offset from the front of the range to maximise customer space. The aesthetic is quite simply breathtaking.

As Craig notes: “The shop looks absolutely fantastic and is exactly what I’d hoped for. I wish all business dealings were as good as they have been with Mallinson’s.”
