The name of our restaurant is: Parmogeddon
We Create: Chicken Parmos!
And a Parmo is: A Parmo is fried chicken goodness, covered in a rich, creamy béchamel, topped with a serious helping of cheese and shoved under the grill until melted and gooey. Perfect with chips and garlic sauce.
We take inspiration from: Middlesbrough, the dish is native to Boro.
Our typical day is: Feeding Parmos to the lovely people who visit Hatch.
Before we did this: We worked in hospitality and retail management.
The best thing about our job is: Having our own business and being our own bosses.
The worst thing about our job is: Nothing! We love our jobs.
Favourite item on the menu: The Holy Grail – The classic Parmo, with loads of garlic mayo of course!
You should visit us to experience: A proper Teeside Parmo!
Our favourite thing about Hatch is: The sense of community.
In our spare time we: Don’t have spare time!
Top tip to other independent traders: Graft! Take every opportunity given, push your brand as much as you can, know your worth.
