Walter’s grandfather, William, opened the original store in 1911. Back then, few would have imagined the little shop on Belfast’s Shankill Road would become a genuine Belfast institution. Walter remembers working there with his mum and dad after school where he would listen to the hustle and bustle of the housewives who would visit the shop. The popularity of the shop grew as did their food service business. Soon the company was building a formidable reputation as suppliers to Northern Ireland’s leading restaurants and hotels.
