Management Team

Alison Blyth started her career in the restaurant industry after moving from England to Washington DC in 1980. Since moving to Rehoboth Beach, DE in 1988, she has owned and operated multiple restaurants, including La La Land (named “Best in Delaware”), Yum Yum (a pan-Asian Bistro), and go fish!, which has been successfully operated for the past 14 years and is the full-service predecessor of go brit!

Alison opened go brit! on Coastal Highway in nearby Lewes, Delaware in 2012 in order to further capitalize on the success of go fish!, but in a limited-service, fast-casual format.

In late 2015, with over 30 years of successful restaurant experience, Alison made the decision to launch a franchise program for go brit!, which is now in the early stages of expansion.
