Fusco’s of Whitby is Expanding!
Article Date: 2016-01-29
A family-run fish and chip business is expanding with the opening of a new takeaway shop in Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.
Fusco’s of Whitby are a long standing family firm who have been serving up fish and chips for over 50 years. The family own the award-winning Quayside restaurant in the town (which was crowned Fish and Chip Shop of the Year, 2014) as well as Royal Fisheries. In 2013, Fusco’s opened their first ‘Fish Box’ venture in Whitby and last year launched The Whitby Fish and Chips Catering Trailer.
Adrian Fusco said: "Fish Box is a new express style fish and chip shop with takeaway seating indoors and outdoors. It has proved very popular in Whitby, particularly with families and dog walkers, so we decided to look for another site and the café in Robin Hood’s Bay is perfect.”
Working in the family business with Adrian is his mother Carol, brothers Stuart and Raymond and sister Maria. The new Fish Box will be equipped with a modern high efficiency Kiremko frying range and grill, due to arrive at the shop in mid-February. The new venture sees a total investment of £500,000 for the purchase and refurbishment of the former Candy’s Café on New Road and is due to open in March 2016, creating up to five new jobs.
