POWER LIST 2018, BUSINESS LEADERS: Mark Derry, Executive Chairman, Brasserie Bar Co

Brasserie Blanc

Mark Derry is a seasoned restaurant industry campaigner who has steered Brasserie Bar Co through solid growth and consolidated its place in the premium end of the casual dining market.

With 19 French brasseries and 17 pub brasseries to its name, the business has pulled off the difficult trick of developing two businesses that are distinct enough to co-exist within the same field. 

Having led the overall strategy of the business, Mark took on the executive chairmanship this year and will be looking to make sure the brand enhances its position in the market through refurbishments and new openings.

One significant development has been the launch of Brasserie Blanc into the hotel sector, with two sites now in operation with Marriott Hotels.

The latest venture is at Manchester Airport, where it is providing all-day food in addition to room service for guests.

The menu offers a combination of authentic French dishes alongside international menu items inspired by the tastes of Raymond Blanc’s travels.

Mark says it is all part of an exciting new phase for the brand: “We’ve seen success from our existing sites that operate within or in association with hotels in Cheltenham, Bath and Bournemouth and are excited to be expanding this side of the business.”
