The Dungeness Fish Hut – Snack Shack is a cross between a street food business and a beach cafe, selling fresh fish dishes and lobster rolls using only the produce brought ashore by our own boats in Dungeness.
Location – Romney Marsh
We are located on Romney Marsh, and specifically in Dungeness which is integral to my USP. I am located just outside my family owned fish shop and within a stones throw from our boats, which land our catch every day.
Advantages of Romney Marsh
Being on the Marsh and in Dungeness is a big bonus, it allows locals and visitors to see for themselves the amazing produce that come from our beautiful stretch of coastline and gives them a better understanding of what is true ‘local’ produce. I also have the most beautiful view from my ‘office’!
Get a really good social media following, this has been a life blood for my business at times – we are really out on a limb in Dungeness and you can’t rely on passing trade so you have to work hard to get people to come to you.
Also, if you are looking at starting a food business then embrace the abundance of amazing produce we have on the Marsh and make it your job to champion those producers, your customers will come back to you if they trust you and feel good about supporting the local economy.
