McDermott's Fish & Chips

Founded by Tony McDermott, and now run by his son Sean, McDermott’s is a family run fish & chip restaurant and takeaway based in Croydon and has been trading for over 30 years.

McDermott’s Fish & Chips a busy, family run Fish & Chip restaurant chose Gardiff EPOS as their preferred EPOS system provider.  Sean McDermott explains why:

“We sell 3,000 meals per week and are – without question – London’s busiest fish and chip shop” says Sean. “The restaurant is modern and fully licensed and serves 300 meals between 5-9pm on a typical Friday”

“We had never had EPOS before, but as part of our ongoing process of modernisation we felt that the time had come to introduce it with a view to improving the customer’s experience and making the whole transaction process simpler and more manageable for us. We looked at a few options, but after a live demo of the Gardiff EPOS system we felt that this was the one best suited to the specific needs of our business”

"The benefits are numerous for both us and our customers.  From the customer's perspective we now have more information available regarding orders and waiting times, so we are able to serve them more quickly, more efficiently and keep them updated on the progress of their order.

“The advantages to us are enhanced customer service and immediate access to information on products and sales. In terms of tangible cost savings, we are now able to run the takeaway with one less staff member for large parts of the day as the EPOS system replaces what was previously done by an employee. It is also very adaptable, meaning that products can be changed and moved around to suit the way we do business.”

“To help even further we have a specially created kitchen video with a bump bar attached that displays the orders in sequence allowing the server to check their order before handing it to the customer”

“Lastly, I would point out that the hardware is only part of the package. We have also been very pleased with the support we have had from Gardiff EPOS post installation. Like any new installation, there were a few minor teething problems but these have been resolved quickly and successfully”
