Jessica and I still remember our first opening day on March 10th 2008. We didn’t know which fish is which at the time. We learned. There was not enough money, there were language issues and we had no experience. We were real babies in this business. There was always something that went wrong but we pressed on. You, our customers, were always there to encourage us, and you were always so kind to us.
In time, we built many good relationships with you, and eventually, we expanded to 5 locations. But to be honest, with the added time and responsibility, it has been difficult managing all of them.
You loved us and our fish and chips and we had such a difficult time knowing what to do. We were led closer, nonetheless, throughout this difficult time, to God who provided everyday what we needed. Without Him, we would not have come this far. So we thank God who is our living hope with all of our hearts. We want to also thank you, our customers, and staff throughout the years for your patronage and kindness.
We hope our story will inspire other new Canadians that anything is possible.
We will keep serving you with great fish and chips at our locations. We will also remember everything you did for us. Forever and forever.
God bless you all!
