Fish & Chip Vans

If you're looking to start a mobile Fish & Chip company, enhance or expand your existing business, then Wilkinson Catering can provide a fully equipped trailer or van to suit your needs.

With many smaller villages and towns without local chip shops, we believe this is one mobile catering market that is very under exploited at the moment. In 2005, it was estimated that in the UK of the just over 4,800 villages with a population of less than 500, a vast majority did not have a local chip shop or takeaway, leaving residents to source these services from further afield.

A majority of our customers who peruse this line of mobile catering now opt for the motorised units such as the Transit models seen on this site. These give total flexibility and moverability enabling owners to serve a range of different locations on any one day or evening. With Friday night, being 'fish and chip night' don't let your local villages go without!

Your Fish & Chip unit can be ergonomically designed to include the right combination of high quality professional stainless steel fryers, pie warmers, peelers and cutters, fridges and freezers and any other catering equipment you may need. We'll make your unit as efficient to operate as possible so you can enjoy maximum output and income from your business.

With mobile Fish & Chip vans extremely popular at the seaside and at Festivals, Country Fetes, Sporting Events, School Fetes and many other outdoor events, there is big demand for this form of catering.
