'Behind The Business'
- THE ONLINE FISHMONGER -
GT Fish was founded by George Theze at age 15 in 2017.
'At the beginning it was just a young boy delivering fish throughout his hometown on his bike with a large Nike dufflebag containing boxes of fresh fish. 3 years later we're delivering across the whole country.'
GT Fish is a Whitstable based company offering the freshest local fish and seafood caught by our very own fleet of day boats. We offer nationwide delivery and hand prepare our catch on the day of the delivery.
The Idea -
I first had the idea for GT Fish whilst with my grandparents in Spain. At age 14 i had been working in the fish industry for over a year and had started to expand my knowledge on the products and the industry. We were searching through the supermarkets and through the streets of Spain for a place we could purchase fresh fish from in which i could then prepare in front of my family to show them what i could do with the fish and what i had learnt in my first months of work.
The business was founded in 2017 after months of failed attempts at launching an E-commerce store with a very, very limited budget.
In the first year the organisation made 1 sale; turning over £50.68. Between this sale and the next was a long, draining period of 6 months where interest was lost as well as many pounds.
The Timeline -
Between 2018 - 2019 we have been building the organisation throughout Whitstable and towards the end of that period we had started to deliver to Herne Bay and Faversham with help from older friends and offering collections.
At the start of 2020 we had expanded our services to the whole of Kent and London just before the global pandemic which created great panic in the organisation as to how we can move forwards. To our surprise we were extremely busy though lockdown and have since opened up our services to the entire country.
At GT Fish we take orders all week for a Friday delivery. Order before 9am Thursday for Friday delivery before 4pm.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I stumbled across this web-site, and was inspired by the story of this local company that was set up by a young entrepreneur. So I decided to try their products. I put an order in at circa 9pm in the evening, and they were delivered to my door by 9am the very next day. What an amazing service!
The BEST fish in town! Thoroughly recommend.
A friend recommended us to GT Fish, we were intrigued by the business started by a local young man.
Th quality of the fish is like no other and you can definitely see and taste the difference.
