As the UK’s casual dining market gets ever-more crowded, Prezzo Holdings has put its faith in Jon Hendry-Pickup to carry the brand forward and keep it at the forefront of diners’ thinking.

He can certainly bring a fresh perspective to the chain having gained 20 years’ retail and consumer experience with Travelodge and Tesco. His goal is to further develop the Italian and Tex-Mex chain’s operational excellence, particularly in managing its growing portfolio of restaurants across the UK and Ireland. john-hendry-pickup-person

“I look forward to working with the company’s talented management team as we continue to build distinctive brands and deliver the highest quality offer for our customers — all while ensuring that Prezzo remains a rewarding place to work,” he said upon joining the firm this year. Prezzo’s investors certainly expect his customer experience and multi-site operational expertise to provide huge benefit to the chain as it enters its next stage of growth.

Established in 2000, Prezzo has grown from a single restaurant to a business that now trades in every major city across the UK. Its portfolio of 284 sites spans the Prezzo and Chimichanga brands, with more than 20 new openings planned throughout the UK and Ireland in 2016.
