How long have you worked at The Fish Factory?
9 years now – gosh! They do say time flies when your having fun don’t they!
So what did you do before working for Proto Restaurant Group then?
Well, I’ve had an extremely varied past to date. I worked in a publishers in London before becoming an air hostess. But, nothing compares to working for Andy Sparsis at The Fish Factory, Worthing.
Is there any part of your job you aren’t keen on?
Customer complaints! Unfortunately, the nature of the business is such that you will get the occasional complaint and I’m just not very good at dealing with rejection! I hate being shouted at but thankfully we don’t get many complaints so I’m fine most of the time.
What would you say the best part of your job is?
I absolutely love just talking to people! We get such a wide range of customers coming into The Fish Factory that it’s fantastic. I get to hear stories from all walks of life and hearing peoples happy stories is brilliant.
Do you prefer the regular customers or new customers?
Regular customers for sure. Although I don’t dislike the new customers, it’s always nice to see a friendly face. It’s good when your regular customers come in because you know their story, they know yours and its great to have a catch up. Of course, we hope that all of our new customers become regulars so that we can enjoy the same level of friendly chit-chat.
What is your recommended dish for us then?
The Fish Meze! It’s unbelievable in it’s taste, variety and size. I love food, and there is lots of it with the Fish Meze – brilliant!
What do you get up to outside of work?
I love to cook! I’ve actually been making chocolate for the past year now which we use at the restaurant for private functions and events which is nice. I’m also going on the Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy, Level 1 and 2 courses in May – how exciting!
