POPULAR fish and chip shop Frankie’s has been put up for sale.
The Brae chippy launched in 2008 and in 2015 it was named the UK’s top independent takeaway fish and chip shop.
It currently employs six full-time members of staff and is owned by Valerie Johnson.
The business is being put up for sale to allow time for other interests.
“Frankie’s was built eleven years ago and we’ve worked hard to establish a business we are very proud of, but have now decided to put Frankie’s Fish & Chips up for sale to concentrate on our other work commitments,” Johnson said.
“We have enjoyed the experience and the business has achieved a lot during this time which would not be possible without a great team of staff.
“We hope that the business can be passed on to new owners who will continue to source and serve the finest quality local fresh produce to our loyal customers.”
In addition to its UK award in 2015, Frankie’s has also been named as the best independent takeaway fish and chip shop in Scotland, while Carlyn Kearney won National Young Fish Frier of the Year 2013.
Estate agent Harper Macleod said in its listing that it is a “unique opportunity to acquire a multi-award winning, nationally recognised fish and chip cafe/takeaway business situated in an excellent, prominent trading location in the middle of Brae”.
