On April 28th, we have the pleasure of hosting our annual family business luch at the renowned Italian restuarant - San Carlo. We are hosting the event in partnership with HSBC to celebrate the success of family businesses in the North-West. During the lunch, we will be hearing from Marcello Distefano the Managing Director of the fast growing, multi-award-winning San Carlo restaurant group.
The San Carlo restaurant group was founded in 1992 as a family business by Marcello’s father and Chairman of the group, Carlo Distefano. The independently owned and operated restaurants are renowned for their ambience and great, original Italian food, attracting a wide range of diners from celebrities and sports stars to business leaders and high profile politicians.
The group now has 18 individually designed restaurants across the UK, known by the brands San Carlo, Signor Sassi, Cicchetti, Fiorentina, Bottega, Gran cafe and Fumo. Further afield diners enjoy Signor Sassi and Cicchetti restaurants in Qatar, Bangkok and Kuwait with plans for further expansion both in the UK and overseas. Like many other family businesses in the North-West, San Carlo is a true testament to the important role family businesses play in our economy and we can't wait to celebrate this success over a delicious lunch!
