Leeds-based distributor, Hopkins, has helped Lincolnshire fish and chip shop Burton Road to develop a chip scoop after the outlet realised it was losing £300 every week by serving portions with too many chips.
The bespoke chip scoop provides standard portion sizes to customers, increasing margins and reducing waste.
Owners Lesley Graves and Des Anastasiou said: “We’ve been developing our chip scoop for a number of years to give our customers and staff a visual guide to our portion sizes. The scoop has also helped us improve our margins. We know that we can now serve 44 portions of chips out of one bag of potatoes, and we can give customers exactly the right portion for their appetite.”
The small and medium chip scoops are available now from Hopkins spares department.
The small scoop (6ounce portion) is priced at £51.00 plus VAT and P&P, while the medium scoop (10ounce portion) costs £55.00 plus VAT and P&P.
£2 from every scoop sold will be donated to Fishermans Mission, the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care to fishermen, active or retired, and their families.
