Simon Heath and Lawrence Wosskow are reported to be working on a deal to buy Compass Group’s Select Service Partner. In an interview with The Independent, Wosskow, who, with Heath last week bought Little Chef, said that the deal would make "Little Chef look like Toy Town". The deal, put at around £1bn, would fulfill a long-held desire for Wosskow. "The reason I could start Out Of Town Restaurant Group was because Compass was ignoring shopping centres," he said. "The next step was to get into stations and airports, but we couldn’t because Compass has ‘inside-the-act’ leases with all the railway station landlords, which means that it can’t be moved. "The airport guys didn’t want to know because Compass was such a big business already so we were snookered."
