What makes Krispies different from other take aways? Apart from our battered chips I think it is our relationship with the customers. We have so many regulars and you get to know what they are having when they walk in the shop, the older people in particular really love this. I feel that Krispies is really part of the community and we create a community feel. I really love working here, Tim and Kelly have given me such support over the years, I cannot imagine working anywhere else, in fact you can bury my ashes in a Krispies Box!
