Investment hunger for food-to-go opportunities will build post-pandemic and focus on category leaders and the strongest operators, MCA’s Food To Go conference has heard.
London, you may have heard, is a ghost town. In the latest round of borderline dystopian statistics to surface as a result of the pandemic, just 7,000 of the 120,000 workers based in Canary Wharf are back at their desks. And although office workers across the capital may be thrilled to be without the twice daily commuter Hunger Games, for those in hospitality, a few stifling minutes on the Central line is a non-issue if the alternative is unemployment. In the last month alone, city-based to-go brands including Wasabi, Tossed, Pret and most recently Itsu have appointed advisors to assess their options, but whilst, historically, the mention of advisors might ring alarm bells, faced with the current economic climate, it could be time to shed the stigma.
Global noodle brand, Marugame Udon, will launch in London next year as part of a newly formed a joint venture between Shoryu Ramen backer Toridoll Holdings Corporation and Wasabi backer Capdesia Group.
