from Humble beginnings
In 1959, brothers Tony & Nick Anassis established a single fronted retail outlet next to the train line in Church Street Richmond. Whilst one brother shucked oysters and filleted fish for sale to local residents, the other established relationships with pubs and restaurants in and around Melbourne through door-to-door promotion of their wares.
From this humble beginning our small family business has grown to be one of the most respected seafood establishments in Melbourne. Today, Richmond Oysters retains its iconic heritage, continuing to operate from our original location. Our wholesale operations are complemented by our retail seafood display, takeaway fish’n’chips and a world class restaurant dining experience.
Fast Forward To Where
We Are Today
A testament to the vision of the founding brothers, Richmond Oysters has been a destination for decades for the local residents of Richmond and beyond. Today, we continue to provide a wholesale service that delivers an extensive range of the freshest fish; the extended variety of sea food that Melbourne demands, together with a total offer in fresh and frozen general foods.
Not only do the traditions set down by Tony & Nick underpin our business, many of Melbourne ‘s successful sea food providers have learnt their trade during their formative years as Richmond Oyster employees, all of which contributes to this strong and vibrant industry.
Richmond Oysters enjoys a wholesale client base with much diversity including most Five Star hotel groups and establishments in the CBD and surrounds with many cafes and hotels throughout the suburbs. Together with this heritage, unparalleled prowess in sea food, a dedicated team and a fleet vehicles, we pledge to continue that tradition.
As well as continuing to deliver quality produce to businesses, Richmond Oysters also provides the finest quality sea food direct to the public through our retail display and online store. Under the stewardship of Theo & Chris, the business has evolved since 2006 into a comprehensive dining experience to be enjoyed.
We at Richmond Oysters recognise our position in the market place as a leader in our field.
We remain focused on continual improvement and the ongoing refinement of business processes for the benefit of our customers and staff. We have a commitment to a superior standard of quality, and t o remain dedicated to delivering the highest possible standard of product to our diverse clientele across wholesale, restaurant and retail.
