Chippy chain prospers against the cods

The chips are anything but down for a traditional fish and chips business which has just opened its sixth shop in Belfast.

Family-run John Dory's said it had now increased its workforce to around 80 people after opening a new 'chippy' in Ballyhackamore, east Belfast.

All of its senior staff are trained and promoted through its in-house training programme, which includes NVQ levels two and three.

Director Mark Polley said: "The staff are our greatest asset. We are very fortunate to have a high calibre of staff within our six branches.

"These are very challenging times so our aim is to provide a high standard of product, good customer service and value for money."
