Double Award Delight for Elite
This year’s prestigious event took place at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Saturday 14th July, where staff from the Elite attended after being named as finalists in three categories: Family Business of the Year, Best to Work For and Customer Service.
At the end of the evening, the family-run fish and chip company walked away with two regional awards in the Midlands category: Best to Work For and Customer Service.
Rachel Tweedale, Director at The Elite Fish & Chip Company, said: “We’re so pleased to have won these awards! The timing is perfect, as they’ve given us an extra reason to celebrate what is already a momentous year for the business.
“We’re gearing up for our 30th birthday in September and these awards are a reminder of the hardwork and dedication that goes into making our business the success that it is today. We’d like to extend our congratulations to all the national winners.”
The Elite Fish & Chip Company was founded in 1988 by Rachel’s grandparents, David and Freda Tweedale, and three generations now influence the everyday running of the business.
Adrian Tweedale, Director at The Elite Fish & Chip Company, added: “It’s an honour to even be invited to the National Family Business Awards, particularly as the family element plays such a huge part in our own business. We were delighted to make it to Wembley after being shortlisted, so to come home with some awards is a bonus!”
The Elite Fish & Chip Company also sponsored two of the national awards: Apprenticeship Champion, awarded to M Dive Ltd, and The Rising Star award, which was won by Yorkshire Packaging Systems.
