Harry Ramsden’s has officially opened its 50th site, in Swanage.

The fish and chips specialist has seen its outlet count double in less than 18 months.

Chief executive Joe Teixeira said: “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 delighted to be opening in Swanage. Having served the generations for almost 90 years, Harry Ramsden’s has always been a family brand and that is as true today as it ever was, so as well as engaging with our traditional customer base, we aim to further secure Harry’s legacy by introducing the brand to a whole new generation of fans in in the area.”
