The Fish and Chip Shops industry has struggled over the past five years, with competition being the number one challenge for operators. Over the past five years, consumers have flocked to alternative fast-food meal options such as burger franchises, sandwich bars and ethnic takeaway operators. Consumers are now exposed to a greater range of takeaway options than ever before, with traditional takeaway establishments such as fish and chip shops losing out due to their generic food options. Rising health consciousness in Australia has also deterred consumers from purchasing traditional fish and chips due to their high fat content.
Firms in the industry are primarily engaged in supplying fish and chips for immediate consumption. Customers order or select food items and pay prior to eating. Food is usually provided in takeaway containers or packaging, and is either consumed on the premises in limited seating facilities, taken away by the customer or delivered.
