You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. At the entry level it encourages you to look carefully at all aspects of your business to ensure you make the best possible pitch. The top ten shops then receive a mystery visit and feedback from a leading fryer on food quality and customer service. If you are fortunate and reach the final three then there is local publicity which helps the business and also a further visit and feedback on all aspects of your operation. Finally of course , it’s fantastic to win. It’s great for staff motivation and for customer excitement and naturally there is the benefit of increased business. The fact that a shop in a small village can win the award means that everybody has a chance”
