The Chippy, Antrim."We use Mcwhinneys sausages because the quality is always consistent and taste is second to none! We have had samples in from other competitors but they don't even come close to Mcwhinneys! They are really popular with our customers and the big foot goes down a treat!"
Brian and Carol Lewis, Cornerstone Cafe, Doagh."We have now used McWhinney's Sausages for over 4 years, and are delighted with them. We have customers that drive for miles simply to get our sausages suppers - they really are the best sausages going. We pay a bit extra for them, but when you have so many people coming here specially for them, it's well worth it."
Colin McElnea, The Catch, Ballynure."I've been using McWhinney's Sausages for over 15 years and I get salesmen into my shop all the time trying to get me to switch. It's a waste of their time. I've tried every sausages on the market and nothing compares in terms of quality, meat content, flavour and durability. McWhinney's truly is the perfect chip shop sausage and I can't recommend them highly enough."
Ann Marie of Bishops, Belfast"We were voted Belfast's Best Chip Shop 2012 and we put that down to great service, and outstanding food. We've been serving McWhinney's Sausages as part of our menu for years, and our customers wouldn't accept anything less. We're now in the early stages of selling the Bigfoot sausage, and they're already going down a treat with our locals. To put it simply, we wouldn't use any other product and we're proud to serve McWhinney's."
Trevor McFall, Rosie's Traditional"I wouldn't use anything other than McWhinney's. I regularly get salesmen in my shop offering me sausages that are "just like McWhinney's", but they never are. Sausage suppers are my biggest seller, and there's a very good reason for that- I serve McWhinney's.
Liam Conlon of Browns, Belfast."Browns was voted Belfast's Best Chip Shop (2010/11) and Best Small Chain in Northern Ireland (2011/12) for many reasons, but mainly for our devotion to quality food. McWhinney's are by far the best sausage on the market, and we simply wouldn't serve anything else. Their flavour, bite and meat quality are all unmatched, and my customers just love them. I pay a little more for them, but my sausage sales speak for themselves and I know that McWhinney's will always provide a consistently great product."
Stephen Magowan- Head Chef at The Park Avenue Hotel, Belfast"It’s great to have such high quality local produce on our doorstep which is so popular with all of our guests!"

Our menu is what defines us and McWhinney’s Sausages are a huge favourite with all of my customers. Their taste, popularity, flavour, consistency and durability are second to none and ever since I changed to McWhinney’s I haven’t looked back. The McWhinney’s Bigfoot Sausage is a massive seller for me and the kids just love them! I would recommend McWhinney’s Sausages to every chip shop in the UK, simply because they are without doubt the best on the market.”
Simon and Rosie, Flounders Chip Shop, Newquay"McWhinney's Sausages are a first rate sausage that we have been using in our shop since we opened. After weeks of trying different brands and makes to sell in our shop it was clear there was only one sausage for the job, McWhinney's. They are a quality meaty sausage full of flavour and taste. They do not dry out and hold well in the cabinet and they batter up perfectly, not losing any shape or substance. We wouldn't use any other brand now which is why our customers keep coming back for more and the kids can't get enough of them!"
Hanzel Gahler, Cod House"McWhinney's are purely the best quality sausage on the market, and thats all I would give my customers. Their taste and appeal are second to none and there's no other sausage that compares to McWhinney's. They are a little more expensive than others but are without doubt the best value and I am proud to serve McWhinney's in my shop."
Steven Wilson, Ollie's Fisheries"After trying McWhinney's sausages at a trade fair, I knew they were the sausages to sell in my Fish & Chip shop. Since buying Ollie's Fisheries in 2011, I have strived to bring my customers the food they recognise but with products of a superior quality and taste, McWhinney's meet both these criteria. My customers agree, that the sausages are an excellent product. I am proud to have them as a permanent fixture on my menu".

Keith Dixon, Editor, "Fryer & Fast Food Magazine""The UK's fast food operators are increasingly putting their trust in quality products, confident that their customers will pay a few pence more to get 'the best'. New kid on the block McWhinney's is one of the industry suppliers which is benefiting from this quality outlook. Confident that the end user will pay the right price for a good quality product, McWhinney's innovative advertising draws parallels between successful operators in the sector and their carrying of McWhinney's products on their menu."
David Henley who came third in the 2006 Fish & Chip Shop of the Year"...we have had a fantastic year as you know being voted 3rd best in the country. Since introducing McWhinney's sausage we have seen a dramatic increase in our sausage sales because of it's excellent flavour-taste. There is virtually no shrinkage or difference in appearance and taste when the sausages are kept in a holding cabinet. At Henley's we never compromise on quality or taste that's why we only use McWhinney's sausages."
Wendy Durham, Editor of Trade Magazine "Fish & Chips and Fast Food""McWhinney's may be a little more expensive, but their innovative "case study" promotional style, targeting "ordinary" shops and spelling out the quality of their traditional Irish pork sausage, is successfully relaying the message that high quality IS affordable when it keeps customers coming back for more."
Nick Cope (Owner),Alfie Bradshaw's Traditional Fish & Chips, Northampton & Coventry"We were upgrading our menu in March 2010 and wanted only the best ingredients so we did our own taste test with customers and everyone picked McWhinney's sausages as their favourite and just as importantly they all agreed that they would pay more for a 70% pork McWhinney's sausage. So we put it on the menu in April and haven't looked back. McWhinney's are extremely popular with my customers now and they are prepared to pay a few pence more for them. And the Bigfoot is a fantastic addition to the menu because it is such a unique product and very popular."
Louise Peck - Peck Ish Fish & Chips, Camelford, Cornwall - WINNERS: Best Fish & Chip Shop in South West England 2010"We've only ever sold McWhinney's Premium 4s and 8s and we chose them because they really are the best sausages available. With their 70% quality pork content, they taste fantastic. We were delighted to be named the best Fish and Chip Shop in the entire six counties of South West England in 2010 and McWhinney's sausages is part of what we do best. Our customers love them. In fact one of our regular customers comes in and just buys five McWhinney's sausages for his takeaway...nothing else, just McWhinney's. We wouldn't cook anything else."
Gareth Foster of Foster's Fish 'n' Chips in Didsbury and Alderley Edge, Cheshire"We stock McWhinneys Premium Irish pork sausages because they are, quite simply, the best Chip Shop sausages by quite some distance. They are high quality sausages and are customers love them."
Comment from Mark Petrou who with his brother achieved the highest acollade in the Fish & Chip Shop Industry, the FISH & CHIP SHOP OF THE YEAR 2006"I have been buying McWhinney's Traditional Irish Pork Sausage since 1999. Having sampled the sausage I became an immediate convert. I could taste the meaty bite, clean flavour and that hint of spice and I knew immediately that my customers would really like them and would pay a few pennies more for them."
Dominic Hassan of Tommy's Fish & Chips of Ballykelly Co. Derry. Champions of N. Ireland 2007"I have been using McWhinney's sausages for the last twenty years and no sausage compares to their distinct quality and taste. With their help of point of sale material and marketing it is no wonder that they are by far the UK leading sausage."
Michael Neill owner of Frying Squad"When the credit crunch hit I sourced some cheaper products to reduce costs for my customers, sausages being one of them. I immediately noticed a dip in sales, and some customers asking where their McWhinney's sausages had gone to. When I made the switch back to McWhinney's, sausage sales increased almost instantly, and it was clear that people still wanted the very best and were happy to pay a little more for it. McWhinney's are slightly more expensive, but it's been proven to me that they warrant every penny."
Alan Hanna at the Pit-Stop"I was happy with my previous sausage, and never had any complaints. I had heard that McWhinney's Irish Pork Sausages were the best on the market, and decided to try their famous 3-step challenge. I'm now serving McWhinney's in my shop and they are a real customer favourite. As an award winning chip shop I endeavour to serve the best of everything, so McWhinney's are now a vital part of my business."
