Joe Teixeira, CEO of Harry Ramsden’s

Joe Teixeira, the company's chief executive, said: "Harry Ramsden's enjoys a first-class reputation for its food quality and friendly service, which we have achieved this because we recruit the right people into the business.

"It is always our highest priority, especially with new outlets, to ensure we deliver a great experience to our customers, every time, so upon appointment, our New Brighton team will undergo rigorous training delivered by our in house team of experts."

The business was started by Harry Ramsden in 1928 in a wooden hut in White Cross, West Yorkshire, and grew to become one of country's most recognised brands.

Mr Teixeira continued: "As the brand continues to go from strength to strength across the UK, carrying on the tradition which Harry himself started in 1928, we are looking forward to opening in New Brighton."
