The Bay Collaborates with ‘Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs’ to Teach the Art of Fish and Chips
Calum Richardson, Owner of The Bay, an innovative, family owned fish and chip business in the North East of Scotland, is collaborating with a European Exchange Programme ‘Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs’ to share his 19-year strong knowledge and passion for the fish and chip industry.
Simona, the aspiring entrepreneur from Brussels, will be joining Calum to learn all about the management of a thriving fish and chip business, to understand the requirements of the shop, in terms of premises, equipment and hygiene and how to prepare a great end product, how to supervise staff and how to create genuine relationships with customers and suppliers.
Calum Richardson, Owner/Chef of The Bay Fish & Chips said:
“Through all of my work with The Bay I do everything I can to try to change the stereotypical, and often negative, image of the fish and chip industry and encourage people to see it as a proper business. By taking part in this European Exchange Programme, I feel like I am helping to spread the word a little further about the quality of Scottish fish and chips and our industry whilst showing the benefits of running your own business. I can’t wait to get started!”
Simona Ferrulli comments about her upcoming time at The Bay Fish & Chips:
“I feel incredibly excited about my upcoming time at The Bay and I’m eager to get going and really soak up as much knowledge as possible. I can’t wait to learn all about running my own business and the fish and chip industry, and I feel that Calum at The Bay will be the perfect mentor for this. I am so grateful for the opportunity and I am ready to embrace my new challenge and immerse myself into the fish and chip world.”
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme, which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other participating countries. The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced entrepreneur, which helps the new entrepreneur acquire the skills needed to run a small firm. The host benefits from fresh perspectives on their business and gets the opportunity to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.
