Come swim with a good crowd

We first opened our doors in 1989, with a passion for serving up the very best fish and chips to New Zealand seafood lovers.

As it turned out, Kiwis liked it! We grew quickly from little minnow to top of the fish and chips food chain, and today 12 stores from Wellsford to Kapiti are turning out the same great taste we started with.

Best of all, we’re looking to grow our fabulous fish and chip loving family even further!

If you’re keen to be in business for yourself (but not by yourself) and love fresh, quality food as much as we do, there’s a successful franchise waiting for you. New Zealand and global opportunities are now available.
