Two former senior members of Leon, the London-based healthy fast food chain, have set up a new consultancy called Public House, for the restaurant, bar, pub and hotel sector Richard Holmes, former head of operations for Leon and Benny Peverelli, former executive chef of Leon restaurants aim to use their skills, expertise and enthusiasm for eating out to drive long-term profits for clients. The new firm has already signed up Deliverance, the London-based high-end food delivery service, and Akkeron Hotels, as clients. Holmes said: “Many businesses in this sector believe that the way to drive growth is through marketing. But we know from past experience, that the way to break sales records is by focussing on the core offering and customer experience. By getting everything perfect – from the volume of the music to the serving temperature of the food - everything else follows. It’s simply a case of putting credibility before visibility.”
