Mark Hix commented: “Since starting my first restaurant in 2007 I have had the support of several private investors and the business has grown very successfully to nine restaurants today. I want to continue to grow our restaurant portfolio and needed to find a new equity partner who is able to provide the necessary resources and capital to further develop. I have worked with WSH and BaxterStorey for some years now as a consultant helping them with development and sourcing interesting British produce. It was very natural to extend that relationship and become equity partners.”
Alastair Storey of WSH said: “I have got to know Mark very well over the years and we are huge fans of his style of cooking. I know how keen Mark is to develop his business and we are well placed to help him achieve his goals.”
WSH is a holding company for a number of the country’s most exciting and successful hospitality brands. These companies include BaxterStorey, Caterlink, Holroyd Howe, Benugo, Searcys and Portico.
