BRIDLINGTON has had a great start to the summer season, and business is definitely booming at one of the town’s best known fish and chip shops.

Busy Bees has extended its cafe and takeaway on Chapel Street to give the family-run business an extra 50 seats.

All the building and design work was carried out by local companies and the expansion has also created up to five new jobs - two full-time posts and up to three part-time positions.

Co-owner Susan Hunter said the seating has been designed to be more family friendly and there are disabled facilities and a baby changing area on the ground floor.

The new cafe interior has been designed to look back on over the years since the family bought their first fish and chip shop in 1973.

“We have looked back at old photos and have had them reproduced and put on the new café walls, we have also gone down the route of informing customers of where fish and chips derived from and giving them an insight into the different fish that we sell and nutritional information on how good fish is to eat,” said Susan.

Over the last four years, the family who run the chain of three shops in Bridlington, have improve facilities at all their shops, including new shop fronts, outside seating, refurbishments and new signs.

Staff have also been encouraged to go on customer focused courses.
