VITO oil filter system benefits top 10 Fish and Chip shop in Wales!
My brother Emir and I wanted to open a fish & chip shop and with the help of our good friend Frank Romanello, who has 40 years’ experience in the trade we were guided through the set- up, training and Hiks Fish Bar was born in Swansea in 2010.
We quickly realised that opening a new business was stressful and it took its toll on both of us which resulted in us parting ways. I had come to love frying fish & chips and meeting new people so I embarked on a new venture and bought a shop in Neath in 2011 and opened Hikary’s Fish Bar. One thing I had learnt throughout was that I wanted to serve fish & chips the way I like to eat it and by doing this I was awarded Regional Winner in the Independent National Fish & Chip Awards Top 10 in 2016.
While using the best quality fish, potatoes and oil, I also wanted to invest in a fish and chip oil filter system which would enable me to consistently fry in clean oil and serve the best fish & chips to my customers, after all what is the point of using the best ingredients if you don’t look after your oil. So I chose the VITO as it saves me a lot of labour time as I can filter my oil when it is hot. I filter morning, afternoon and evening as it only takes 5 minutes! Even when it is busy. I now find myself not changing oil as much, the oil is not as dark as it was, and all of my battered product is consistently good.
The system has fitted into my daily work routine very easily and I continue to be so surprised at the amount of carbon the VITO pulls out. I have very quickly seen a big improvement in the quality of my oil and it lasts so much longer giving my customers a better product that I always strive for. I have already recommended it to some of my friends and they are also extremely pleased with it,
I can see the VITO paying for itself very quickly. So all round I am very happy with my business now and YES I have even made up with my bro!
