Do you have what it takes to join the squad?

Are you an enthusiastic and committed 'business builder'? The Frying Squad is looking for new recruits to expand its fish and chip takeaway concept across Ireland.

'As a result of the success of our company-owned fish and chip takeaway in North Down, we have begun a programme of expansion through franchising,' Michael Neill, Founder of The Frying Squad, tells The Irish Franchise Magazine.

The company is looking to appoint a number of franchisees across Northern Ireland with drive and commitment to excellence and growth. Candidates will need to demonstrate enthusiasm for The Frying Squad business concept, people management skills and the desire to be a 'business builder'.

New franchisees will gain access to a portfolio of already approved sites in Northern Ireland through the unique relationship the company has secured with a major property developer. Add to this a turnkey franchise programme and Michael Neill believes that The Frying Squad offers a very attractive and profitable franchise package.

'With our strong corporate image, expertise, know-how and commitment to providing training and ongoing support, bolstered by the enthusiasm of our franchisees, we believe that this is a win/win opportunity.'

The key ingredients of the package includes a comprehensive two-week residential training programme plus one week of in-store mentoring; launch package; corporate uniform; promotional package; operations manual; and ongoing support such as regular visits and performance analysis of the business. 'The Frying Squad is committed to providing a comprehensive support package and in doing so will give franchisees an excellent opportunity to grow and develop their businesses,' adds Michael Neill. 'We have a tried and tested business system that provides franchisees with the opportunity to enjoy attractive earnings.'

In developing the franchise The Frying Squad enlisted the services of FDS Southern. Consultants Patterson and Rigby speak highly of the business: 'The Frying Squad is launching a very prestigious franchise opportunity with the potential to become the best fish and chip franchise in the UK.'

The Frying Squad is already an award-winning fish and chip take-away, and through franchising aims to take its success formula to customers across Northern Ireland before expanding into mainland UK & ROI. Michael Neill adds: 'If fish and chips are the UK's first choice of takeaway, the aim of The Frying Squad is to be the customers' first choice of fish and chip shops. We welcome enquiries from candidates throughout Ireland.'
