Talk Business December 2013
This month, in The Hospitality Issue, we focus on the SME indie restaurants, takeaways and pubs. Luke Thomas, who is just 20 years old and head chef of three restaurants, spills the beans on his phenomenal success. We also speak to the founders of Mexican restaurant Wahaca. Mark Selby and BBC’s Masterchef 2005 winner Thomasina Miers tell us, despite problems in the beginning, how they now have 12 locations in and around London. Some indie restaurants do phenomenally well, but is it difficult in today’s climate? We find out how the owners of small restaurants compete against big chains such as Pizza Express, Wetherspoon and Costa. As 2013 draws to end we also rate the best gadgets of 2013 on and look back at our best interviews and ask you to choose your favourite.
