Prezzo, the TPG Capital-backed group, has stared a trial with UberEats in London, MCA understands.

The group has been working with Deliveroo for around a year and chief executive Jon Hendry-Pickup said there is more for the group to explore in the area.

As well as the trial with UberEats, Hendry-Pickup said Prezzo was keen to focus on food to go.

He said: “There’s still more significant work we can do with takeaway – which remains 50% of the market. People tend to forget about how important that is and I think we can do more to make it simpler for customers.”

He added: “There is no doubt that the rise in eating at home is one of the big questions for restaurant groups to answer. You would be a fool to ignore it but it’s important to manage that side of the business carefully.”

As MCA reported yesterday, the group has passed the 300-site mark after a flurry of new openings this year.

The next openings for Prezzo will be in Livingston, West Lothian, later this month and Thornbury, Gloucestershire, in July. It follows a flurry of recent openings, including Mere Green and Telford in the West Midlands, the West Quay development in Bournemouth and Belfast.

Meanwhile, after making some changes to the Chimichanga model in the existing Peterborough store, the first new-look Chimichanga will open in Bracknell in September.
