The June edition of Foodservice Equipment Journal is available to view online now, with news on yet another upmarket burger chain muscling its way into Britain.
Smashburger, represented by MSG Group in the UK, has committed to at least 35 outlets, MSG’s managing director tells FEJ in an exclusive interview.
The American burger chain isn’t the only fast casual dining business investing in new premises and kitchens. That’s Vapore, an Italian chain that was founded in Milan four years ago, is also targeting our shores, and explains to FEJ how it cooks its entire menu using steam-based ovens. The result is healthier and more flavoursome pizzas and pasta, the company explains.
Alongside these newcomers to the UK, FEJ lifts the lid on the latest moves from highstreet stalwart Pret-a-Manger. The chain revealed its full year results last month and revealed how it intends to fuel growth in the future with an evolving menu of hot and cold food, and a commitment to keep improving customer satisfaction.
