Arthur Treacher's Franchise

Fish & chips

Did you know fish and chips were the first convenience food?

Back in the 1860s, a London restaurant called Malin's of Bow began
serving deep-fried whitefish with a dousing of malt vinegar accompanied
by oversized fries. The fish and chips craze soon spread throughout
England, and the dish became the world's first convenience food.

In 1969 the founders of Arthur Treacher's purchased Malin's and with it, the original fish and chips recipe.
Since then we've adjusted the menu to accommodate American tastes and
expanded it to include shrimp, clams, fried chicken, and popular side
orders including tasty hush puppies and unique cole slaw. All of which
makes Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips the traditional English meal perfect for today's All-American appetite!

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
