The Wee Kelpie, an award-winning fish and chip shop takeaway in Argyll and Bute, has been adapting to Covid-19 restrictions.

Following support from DigitalBoost, the business has created a new website and introduced online ordering.

The fish and chip shop closed at the start of lockdown to ensure the health and safety of the team.

Husband-and-wife team Nicola and Kerr Raeburn approached Business Gateway to identify how they could adapt their business model to reopen in the safest way possible and limit their exposure to the public to reduce the spread of the virus.

Through DigitalBoost, The Wee Kelpie accessed one-to-one support, including expert advice as they started building their first website.

Nicola was supported as she went through appointing a web developer, with Business Gateway input to the plan and brief, helping to ensure the website met their business needs.

Nicola said: ‘Through DigitalBoost, we were able to access expert, impartial help which was invaluable as we started the process of building a website.

‘Our DigitalBoost consultant was friendly, knowledgeable, and explained things clearly to us, outlining what we needed to do to adapt and launch a new platform.’
