Euphorium Bakery founder, Daniel Bear and hospitality finance director Atif Amin of Chilango, Hakkasan and Ping Pong fame, will launch their first fast casual, cashless modern carvery concept on Tooley Street, London this summer.
The licensed carvery will serve its ‘carvepots’, from breakfast through to dinner containing hand carved fish, meat and vegetarian options prepped by staff on customer facing podiums.
Diners can tap, grab and go in seconds courtesy of one-step, one-price ordering and cashless payment system.
Patrons complete their transactions in advance then help themselves to a drink, a ‘carvepot’ from the self-service system, a roll and a sauce before leaving or taking a seat at a counter or table. All-°©day ‘carvepots’ are priced at £6.95.
Bear, pictured, commented: “For years the concept of carvery has had a bad rep but we aim to put it back on diners’ foodie lists.
“Carve is food for the way we like to eat now – high protein, fresh, fast guilt- free food.
“We’re focused on food not service, we put our money into ingredients and hand carve everything in full view, there’s no backstage.
“Cash-free payment and one price ensures an efficient customer journey and we are confident that this will be embraced by increasingly health-conscious, time-poor Londoners.”
