MCA’s September edition features in-depth analysis and commentary on the eating and drinking out sector. The new issue includes analysis of both the energy and cost of living crises and how operators are faring in the face of these challenges. In the wake of speculation about a possible sale of Starbucks, we take a look at how the brand has lost ground to its rivals and what the shape of a deal could look like, and we explore the PR value of operating plant-based only restaurants. Elsewhere in the edition there are exclusive interviews with Byron, Taco Bell, Tortilla, Fulham Shore and Clean Kitchen, and insight from Lumina Intelligence and CACI.
