SALT have announced today they are to launch restaurant division The PEPPER Collective headed by restaurateurs Neil Rankin and Handley Amos. The duo will join SALT – the leading partnership and experience agency specialising in food & drink – to head up their new restaurant division The PEPPER Collective.
The PEPPER Collective has brought together a team of people with a common purpose: to work with like-minded souls, businesses and enterprises to create new hospitality experiences.
Unlike many traditional restaurant groups, The PEPPER Collective not only provides their partners with investment opportunities and financial backing, but crucially an expansive range of core expertise to realise each project to its full potential.
From concept development and location sourcing to marketing, staff training, design, quality control and F&B strategy – The PEPPER Collective provide the fundamental operational backbone, as well as the creative insight needed to ensure a quality and sustainable business model for each and every partnership.
Commenting on the formation of The PEPPER Collective, SALT’s CEO Andrew Fishwick says: “I could not be more thrilled to have brought together two legends of our industry to head up our new restaurant division.
I have known Neil and Handley for years and they think like I do about the future of hospitality; we all know our sector is changing beyond recognition and we believe that by working with the best, by being at the vanguard of the new movement and by incorporating new ways of thinking, we can create a group that makes a difference.”
