Soon after, Marc was approached by Nobu London to oversee the construction of multiple locations across Europe, before moving into operations for Ping Pong restaurants, launching 10 locations over a 2-year period. Marc then joined the Roast London team leading to his purchase of the restaurant and brand in 2019.

After rising through the ranks from Bar Back to F&B Manager, he teamed up with Marc as a F&B consultant to launch multiple projects such as Bianco43 and Roast Kitchen. Mattia joined forces with Marc once again in 2019 as the Operations Director for the launch of Roast Worldwide.

Iliya Nikolov
