POWER LIST 2016, MARKET MOVERS: Tom Aikens, Founder, Tom’s Kitchen

Tom’s Kitchen

Acclaimed chef Tom Aikens’ restaurant and deli chain has really gone up a gear this year in a bid to scale its operation.

After making its mark in London, where it has sites in Chelsea, Canary Wharf, St Katharine Docks and Somerset House, the group is now looking outside of the capital. Tom Aiken, Founder, Tom's Kitchen

Birmingham is set to be its first port of call as part of this strategy, while its international operations are poised to get a boost from the launch of a branch at Dubai’s new Riverland amusement park, where it will offer express food options.

Tom’s Kitchen sites are renowned for offering all-day dining, seven days a week, and serving locally-sourced ingredients and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal environment.

The British theme even extends to the catering equipment it uses. At its restaurant in Chelsea, for instance, it has deployed a British-made Synergy grill SG900 as part of its prime cooking set-up. One of the big highlights of this year has been the opening of a branch at the iconic HMS Belfast in conjunction with Levy Restaurants.

The quayside venue will include a 58-cover rooftop bar as well as a 46-seat deli. “The opportunity to create a Tom’s Kitchen Deli and Bar in such an extraordinary space is a real privilege,” says Tom.
