Wed 23rd Jul 2014 - Former Mitchells & Butlers retail director joins YO! Sushi board
Former Mitchells & Butlers retail director joins YO! Sushi board: Paul Reynolds has been appointed to join the executive board at YO! Sushi as operations director, responsible for the operations team, facilities and health and safety. Reynolds was previously based in Moscow working for Rosinter Restaurants - he held the position of vice president of human resources, and was promoted to chief operating officer in October 2013. He oversaw the development of large-scale international brands including the Japanese inspired ‘Planeta Sushi’, with a managed and franchised estate of circa 115, and the Italian concept ‘Il Patio’, with 135 sites. He was also involved in large-scale franchised brands including TGI Friday’s, Costa and McDonalds. Prior to this, he was retail director at All Bar One and Alex Café and Bars in Germany. He has also worked as human resources director at contract caterer Elior UK, Carphone Warehouse, and London bar and restaurant operator Novus Leisure. Chief executive of YO! Sushi Vanessa Hall said: “Paul’s arrival comes at a time when YO! Sushi is re-doubling its focus on our people and looking to delight our guests further through a broader range of meal opportunities. I’ve known Paul for a number of years. His drive, energy and experience in big-scale branded operations means he will be invaluable as we drive ahead with our exciting growth plans.” YO! Sushi recently opened its 70th UK restaurant in Baker Street, London, which is the fifth of ten planned restaurant openings in 2014. YO! Sushi’s footprint includes ten international franchises, in the Middle East, Ireland and Scandinavia, and the restaurant group plans to open 50 restaurants in the US over the next six years.
