Tue 5th Dec 2023 - Propel spotlights ten operators exploring 'white space'
Premium subscribers to receive ten videos from up-and-coming operators as they explore ‘white space’ opportunity: Premium subscribers are to receive access to ten videos from up-and-coming operators as they explore the “white space” opportunity for their concepts. The ten operators, who presented this year at our Multi-Club Conference series, show that there is always uncrowded and unexplored areas of the UK food and beverage scene – where innovative operators can chart new territory with a fresh concept. Propel managing director Paul Charity said: “These ten operators prove what an exciting sector this is – they have brilliant new ideas and are tapping into novel parts of the market.” The videos will be sent on Friday, 15 December at 9am. They will include Verity Foss, co-founder and Lina Blythe, operations director of Oowee Vegan, talking about the growth and evolution of the plant-based fast food concept, how delivery has helped shape and develop the business, and how it will stay ahead of its growing competitor set. Asad Khan, founder of Snowflake Luxury Gelato, discusses the creation of the concept, is crowdfunding campaign, and its national and international expansion targets. Lisa Buckley, chief executive of Leisure TV Rights, the experiential leisure operator, talks about the development of the Ninja Warrior concept, working with TV-related formats, continual evolution of games and its expansion plans. Laura Mimoun, co-founder of Kaleido Rolls, which specialises in salad rolls and rice paper rolls, discusses starting out in a lift and growing across London and into Europe. Shereen Ritchie, chief operating officer of Buns from Home, talks about the rise of the independent bakery concept born out of the pandemic, which is now expanding fast across the capital. Yolk founder Nick Philpot discusses the development of the elevated grab-and-go concept, and how it is looking to muscle into the Pret, Itsu and Greggs space. Sanjeev Sanghera, co-founder of Döner Shack, the Berlin fast casual kebab concept, talks about the brand’s creation, the constant evolution of the business, the competitive landscape and its growth plans here and internationally. Razak Helalat, founder of Black Rock Restaurant Group, discusses how the Coal Shed and Burnt Orange operator oversees a number of different concepts across two cities, the ideas behind the company’s diverse offer and where it goes from here. Meriel Armitage, founder of Club Mexicana, talks about the expansion and evolution of the 100% vegan concept, the challenge of growing a business in the current environment and where it goes from here. Simon Hooper, international business director at street food cafe franchise Chaiiwala, discusses the concept’s creation, its expansion in the UK and internationally, the size of the opportunity and its move into the drive-thru category.
