Union Jack’s, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant concept-in-waiting, will use only produce sourced from the UK, M&C Report understands. Speculation has indicated that Union Jack’s will feature traditional British food, however, the appointment of Chris Bianco, the award-winning US pizza operator, as a director to the company overseeing the new concept suggests it will have a more modern twist and could feature pizzas made with British produce. M&C Report revealed yesterday that Bianco had become a director of the high-profile chef’s new company, Jamie Bianco Ltd. The company, in which Oliver is the majority shareholder, includes John Jackson and Simon Blagden, chairman and managing director respectively of the 19-strong Jamie’s Italian chain, as directors. Pizzas are currently not included on the menu at Jamie’s Italian, but Blagden is a previous operations director at Pizza Express. The new group has also copywrited intellectual property rights for the Union Jack’s name, which includes pizzas and pizza products among products and services trademarked. Jamie’s Italian will open its latest site in Chelmsford on 29 July. It is set to open further restaurants over the coming months in Islington, Milton Keynes, Threadneedle Street in London and Westfield Stratford. The chain is also set to open in Sydney, Australia, later this year.
