Spanish-themed restaurant group La Tasca is bucking the trend of a slowing market, according to analyst Greg Feehely of Altium Securities. He says it is well run with tight financial controls and an innovative profit share arrangement. The group said in October that its first-half performance was "encouraging" with sales "well ahead" of last year. Fourteeen new restaurants will open in its first year, up from the planned ten.
