Paolo Peretti Group (PPG) confirms series of client wins

Food & Beverage (F&B) Growth Consultancy adds Pizza 1889; Rice Guys and Indian heritage brands for Summer 2024

Paolo Peretti Group (PPG) confirms series of client wins

PPG has confirmed a series of client wins, including Pizza 1889 with its Italian dough and stone baked pizza. Pizza 1889 currently has franchises in Oxford, Bristol, Surrey and Cambridge with two further sites  planned for 2024 by the Southwell Founders.

PPG meanwhile was founded in 2022 by MD Paolo Peretti, who has a hospitality and food and beverage background, having held various roles, including past MD of Patisserie Valerie and support to AMT Coffee, Burger King, Leon and SSP.

Commenting on the Pizza 1889 partnership, Peretti said: ”the traditional Neapolitan ingredients are handmade onsite by fully trained staff, using traditional techniques and fresh ingredients. The concept offers a six-foot stone oven as its showpiece, the franchise can go anywhere from retail parks to petrol station forecourts or airports. Franchising with 1889 is very different since you are purchasing an asset, and if your initial location isn’t  working for you, you can lift and optimise. We will help you find a lease and we are looking for new sites from London up to the Midlands.” 

Rice Guys, meanwhile,  is another recent client win. Described as passionate,  offering everyday Chinese Comfort Food with high quality ingredients, its founders are based in London but again there are opportunities to grow the franchise, according to PPG.

PPG is also supporting  Tikka Nation on Franchise Acquisition, which recently opened in Leeds as well as St Albans, Birmingham, Dorking, Preston and London.

Also being supported is Shah’s Halal in its UK Operations & Marketing. The group already has over 50 locations and 17 years of experience in the USA, as well as London.

The consultancy is  similarly working with KarakChaii in many aspects of its business, including leadership and Marketing. KarakChaii has an expanding network across the UK offering iced drinks for the summer and a comprehensive range of strong desi brewed tea using a range of spice options from classical to Cinnamon, Saffron or mint tea.

It currently operates 10 sites, including Coventry, Birmingham, London, Bolton, Nottingham and Cardiff. And it has ambitious growth plans for a further 50 sites over the next three years.
