A FAMILY-RUN sandwich shop has made its way back to Chichester after five years.

Splits first opened in the Buttermarket in North Street, Chichester, but left in 2008 before it was refurbished.

Owners Lorraine and Carl Edney then opened a bakery and sandwich shop in East Wittering, where they continue to trade.

But now they have opened a second store back in Chichester – and they are thrilled.

“We’ve got some really lovely people supporting us in East Wittering, but our heart has always been in 
Chichester as it is where we started.

“We’re a real family business, said Mrs Edney.

She said not only does she work with her husband, but her mum, daughter and daughter-in-law.

“It is nice, people like that, We want all our customers to know us.”

Mrs Edney said after the first week of opening many customers had expressed their excitement over the return of the sandwich shop to the city centre.

“We’ve been trying to get back into Chichester for a while,” said Mrs Edney.

“It is very exciting for us.”

Splits is now situated in St Martin’s Square, next to the newsagent Good News.
