MCA’s November edition features in-depth analysis and commentary on the eating and drinking out sector, including how operators are dealing with current cost pressures, and commentary on Greene King’s acquisition of Hickory’s – and what the deal could mean for both sides. There are big interviews with Alasdair Murdoch, CEO, Burger King UK and Marston’s CEO Andrew Andrea, as well as Wimpy, Banana Tree and Cooks Coffee Company. The edition also features extensive coverage of MCA’s recent Restaurant Conference, which featured former PizzaExpress CEO David Campbell, McDonald’s COO Gareth Pearson and Caravan founder group CEO Laura Harper-Hinton on the bill. There is insight from Lumina Intelligence on the clever menu hacks operators are using to mitigate ingredient price rises and opinion from MCA’s regular industry commentators: Peter Martin, Dominic Walsh and David Read, covering the continued lure of London as a place for brands to invest, a critique of Revolution Bar Group’s acquisition of Peach Pubs and the importance of leadership and innovation.
