The Bells are Ringing in Washington for Fish and Chip Entrepreneur

Article Date: 2014-10-16

Graham Kennedy, owner of Bells and NFFF memeber, has launched a fourth outlet in the multi-million pound Teal Farm development in Washington.

Chartered surveying firm Bradley Hall helped Mr Kennedy to strike a deal to lease a 1,250sqft unit from landlord Hellens Developments on the development, in a location ideal for customers at Teal Farm village and business park.

Mr Kennedy has invested £200,000 in a major refurbishment of the premises to bring it in line with his other three outlets and he also hopes to create 10 jobs at the Washington takeaway, which has now opened its doors.

He said: "We are delighted to expand our business into Washington. The property provides a superb platform for us to showcase our tried and tested brand with a quality product and I have no doubt that the takeaway will be as successful and popular as our Durham outlets.”

Mr Kennedy has spent almost 30 years serving fish and chips to hungry customers.

He launched his first shop at Pittington before buying Bells in Gilesgate, Durham. Three years ago he opened another outlet in Market Place after Bradley Hall helped him secure a deal to buy the former Bimbi’s restaurant from Eastwood Fisheries, which had fallen into administration. Bradley Hall then assisted him in the launch of his outlet on North Road, Durham.
