Jon Abrahams has stepped down from his role as operations director of Crepeaffaire to set up his own venture, MCA understands.

Abrahams spent 18 months with the Daniel Spinath-led group, during which time it grew to 15 sites and secured £2m investment from the Business Growth Fund.

Prior to that, Abrahams was head of operations at Le Pain Quotidien, following stints at Paul UK and SSP.

His new project will be an all-day dining concept called Judes.
