In this episode Susan chats with Pauline Ramsay about the business she and her husband Richard set up over 38 years ago. Ramsay's fish and chip van has become an institution in the dales with regular clientele looking forward to their weekly visits. Unfortunately for dales folk the business is now up for sale and we all hope that the new owners will continue this much loved service.
Pauline had worked in a fish and chip shop as a young lass prior to taking on the mobile van but is was a steep learning curve for her and husband Richard when they took on the business. They have developed it into a thriving mobile takeaway service for those in the dales who rely upon them in order to have a night off cooking.
Pauline shares their journey and gives us an insight into this family business with even the youngest members having an input into the van's design. We also learn that the fish they use travels all the way from Iceland...no... not the store but the country!
Pauline and Richard are now planning their retirement and just need an investor who is prepared to keep the business running, providing food to the dales.
