Harry Ramsden’s has added to its franchised estate with an opening at Welcome Break’s South Mimms services, its fourth opening with the roadside operator.

Joe Teixeira, chief executive of Harry Ramsden’s, said: “The public’s appetite for our brand continues to rise, as confirmed by the 9.8% increase in Q3 like-for-like sales. The success of our outlets currently operating within Welcome Break’s network of service stations is such that we are delighted to further develop the partnership with this latest opening in South Mimms.

“This allows us to continue with our ambition to increase our visibility and accessibility across the UK, reminding and indeed, introducing the brand to millions of customers, many of whom are new to Harry’s.”

There are currently deals close to being concluded on further openings in Yorkshire, Scotland and Worthing.
