Carluccio’s is set to ramp up its £10m ‘Fresca’ revitalisation programme by upgrading at least five more sites over the coming months.
The investment follows the success of a pilot refurb at Richmond earlier this year and will see stores including Heathrow Terminal 5 and Bluewater shopping centre undergo a major transformation.
The injection of new funding will see the guest experience elevated at Heathrow T5 and Bluewater through enhanced design, food and service, underpinned by the late Antonio Carluccio’s brand ethos of ‘minimum of fuss, maximum of flavour.’
More than £500,000 will be spent improving both sites, with 20 new roles created in the process.
Mark Jones, CEO of Carluccio’s, said: “The success of our Richmond pilot and the start of our Fresca roll-out is an important milestone for the Carluccio’s business. With a new focus on recruiting, training and developing teams and a clear plan to re-assert and build on our credentials as the UK’s leading Italian restaurant group, we are in a great place to drive the business forward.”
