COVID-19 Update

Miss Millies are still open for delivery.

The latest Government guidance to help protect everyone’s health during the COVID-19 outbreak is for people to stay indoors except for when they need to exercise, shop for essential items, have a medical need or have to travel for essential work.

With this in mind, along with the Prime Minister encouraging people to “use food delivery services where you can” we have decided to remain open for delivery orders.

We have taken all of the necessary measure to protect the welfare of our staff, our delivery drivers and of course you, our customers, with social distancing and contactless delivery where it is available from our delivery partners.

We will continue to monitor the situation and comply with all Government guidelines. We hope by continuing with our delivery service we can help to support our local community and bring a little happiness (along with some awesome chicken) to people’s lives in these challenging times.

We’ll be announcing some news regarding our delivery partners on 26/03/20. In the meantime, you can order from your local store through one of our delivery partners here: missmillies.co.uk/order-online/

Please stay safe and most importantly, stay home!

Christian Wins £100 in Millie’s vouchers

We’re delighted to be finally on Instagram! It’s been a long time coming and there is a lot of NEW to shout about.

Alongside the starting up the new channel, we’ve now released our new brand to the world, a new menu in Weston (coming 24th March) as well as a new store coming to Yate as well.

To celebrate our new Insta channel, we wanted to throw one of our biggest ever Miss Millie competitions. We love regularly giving our awesome customers prizes on our social channels that they can enjoy in their nearest store, and this time we went BIG!

Christian was one of over 400 people who entered our inaugural Instagram competition and took home the good with £100 of Miss Millie’s vouchers. Mr. Barrzy256 picked his winnings up from his local G’Road store and was buzzing with his winnings, saying that ‘if it wasn’t for him going round friends tonight for dinner, he’d probably spend them all tonight’.

Whenever Christian does decide to spend his vouchers, we hope they can last him and his pals more than one big fried-chicken session.

We also found out on his collection of winnings that Christian is working in the health care sector, in A&E, and in-hospital on the frontline of the current pandemic. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank him and everyone else for their incredible service at this time in the current climate.

Stay safe everyone x

Climbing Kilimanjaro for a fantastic cause

We’ve been excited to share this wonderful story for some time now. Last month (September), loyal customer, Gethin Wilkinson took his love for Miss Millies’ to all new heights as he scaled 5895 meters up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa for Great Western Air Ambulance. All of this, in none other than one of our traditional Miss Millie’s hats!

Before Gethin set off for Tanzania, he visited our Gloucester Road store to pick up some hats and also a bit of “fuel” (none other than a complementary Chicken-In-A-Bun meal!).

As Gethin, colleague Joe and the other 6 members of the team fundraising for the Great Western Ambulance ascended, there were these fantastic pictures taken at each checkpoint with the trusty Millie’s hat in each of them, the local guides even asked to sport the headgear.

Each morning before continuing up towards the summit, all hands went in together and on ‘1, 2, 3 – MILLI-KILLI’ was chanted by the team and guides as well as throughout the day.

After 4 and a half days of incredibly challenging hiking, Gethin and the some of the team (unfortunately the 3 other members of our team were unable to reach the summit due to the effects of altitude), managed to reach Uhuru Peak, the summit of Kilimanjaro and the highest point in Africa.

This therefore certainly means that Gethin now certainly holds the record for the highest altitude a Miss Millie’s hat has ever been worn! He also, managed to get through quite a few hats, and one of their porters was more than happy to take one off him! Gethin did a fantastic job raising money for the charity with over £4,000 raised by Gethin alone! We also went to visit the team earlier in the week to present a donation from Miss Millies Fried Chicken of £531!

Thanks for being such a fantastic, loyal customer, Gethin! We look forward to seeing you in G’road or one of the stores again very soon. Or even hearing about your next record-breaking Millie’s challenge.

Kilimanjaro? More like Milliemanjaro!
