Max Hilton Jenvey is to step down from his role as global head of franchise at noodle bar chain, Chopstix.

Jenvey joined Chopstix in 2015 and along with the founders Sam Elia and Menashe Sadik helped grow the business to over 75 sites. Latterly, he has overseen the creation and development of the brand’s international franchise operation.

Jon Lake, managing director of Chopstix, said: “Max has played a key role in establishing Chopstix across the UK and Ireland in terms of company-owned sites and securing and supporting our increasing base of franchise partners. As we move onto the next stage of the company’s development, Max has decided to step down to focus on further developing his career and exploring new challenges and opportunities. We thank him for all of his efforts over the last three years and wish him well on his future endeavours.”

Co-Founders Menashe Sadik & Sam Elia said: “We’d like to thank Max for working with us in developing the Chopstix brand, growing our corporate structure and commercial success, and know wherever he lands, he’ll deliver the same commitment and results as he has for us.”

Jenvey said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Chopstix and look forward to its continued success. With a new management team in place, I thought it was the perfect time to return to the world of business development and marketing and look forward to helping deliver success for companies looking to enhance their businesses and emulate the achievements at Chopstix.”
