Healthy eating operator Tossed has promoted Neil Sebba to the role of managing director.

Previously Business Development Director, Sebba has been with the 35-site business since 2010, when it had just five stores.

Vincent Mckevitt, who remains in situ as founder, said: “The board and I are delighted to promote Neil to the role of Managing Director to lead the next stage of the business’s development. Our recent innovations in hot food, technology, vending and delivery have laid the foundations for the next few years of growth. I’m immensely proud of where Neil and the senior team are taking the business; on average they have been with Tossed for over six years, and ultimately it’s their hard work that has got us to where we are.”

An early adopter of technology, Tossed was the first restaurant chain or retailer in Europe to go completely cashless in 2016.

It has recently developed Speedy Greens, a vending solution to extend its product reach directly into offices and travel hubs.

In 2015, Tossed completed the sector’s biggest equity crowdfunding on Seedrs and, in 2018, Tossed acquired its direct competitor Vital Ingredient.

Sebba said: “This wonderful business sits at the forefront of health and technology in food-to-go. Working with Vincent, Angelina Harrison (commercial director) and the senior leadership team to bring healthy, customisable, made-to-order food to more people is an honour, and I am excited about us delivering on its next stage of growth.”
