Businesses in Sussex have been shortlisted for a competition on the “funniest shop name” in the UK.

From Jason Donervan, to Thaitanic or the flooring company Lino Richie, there are plenty of businesses across the UK which use a quirky play on words to catch your attention.

But which businesses in Sussex have made the list?

Simon said: “We got the idea during lockdown, taco and margarita nights on a Friday. We thought we should be doing this on the beach, Worthing needs this.

“Once we had the name we said this was too good not to do. Within about two and a half months from the idea, we were on the seafront trading and have never looked back.

“People says the business name puts a smile on their face, there’s something about a pun. It’s a time honoured tradition.”
