As an Arthur Treacher's Franchise owner you will be offering what is generally regarded as the world's first convenience food. The legendary combination dates back to 1865 when an enterprising London restaurant, Malin's of Bow, began wrapping fried whitefish fillets in newspapers for customers on the go. The oversized "chips," doused with malt vinegar were added later. Malin's was purchased by the original Arthur Treacher's, Inc. in 1969 and the first Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips restaurant opened that same year in Columbus, Ohio. Through the years, the company changed hands and eventually was acquired by PAT Franchise Systems, Inc. in 2002 through a private transaction. The intellectual property was sold to NF Treacher's Corp., an affiliate of Nathan's Famous Sytems, Inc. in 2006 and TRUFOODS, LLC became the co-franchisor in 2007.
