Free casual dining event to be held at Google

The Caterer is to host a free Business Breakfast event for casual dining operators in partnership with Barclays to explore the future for the sector.

Taking place at host partner Google's state-of-the-art Town Hall offices in London on the morning of 28 April, the event will bring together experts from Barclays, Google and the hospitality industry to share exclusive data and insight into what will drive growth in 2016.

After a funding outlook from Barclays' Mike Saul and insight into digital trends in casual dining from Google's Harry Walker, a panel of leading operators will explain how they see the future for the sector and where opportunities might lie.

The industry leaders include Ian Edward (Brasserie Blanc, Pizza Pilgrims, Hippo Inns), Sticks ‘n' Sushi managing director Andreas Karlsson and Dishoom founder Kavi Thakrar. They will discuss their growth strategies and explain how they have built businesses for sustainable success.
