Within its financial report, filed with Companies House, Flat Iron said: "Despite the UK restaurant market having become more competitive over recent years with operators experiencing cost pressures from National Living Wage increases, rising property costs combined with consumers real incomes being squeezed by rising inflation, the company continued to generate cash from operating activities and is positive about delivering another year of increased sales and profitability."
