Lewis Craig acted on the acquisition of the first two UK restaurants, in Bristol and Southampton, and continue to advise on their UK property assets and ongoing acquisition strategy.

The team behind L’Osteria originally founded, grew and subsequently sold the Vapiano restaurant company.

The UK Master Franchisee is Pru Naik. In 2008 Pru Naik became the largest UK McDonald’s franchisee, and has managed over 12,000 employees since 1998.

Pru was also awarded the Golden Arch Award in 2006, an award only achieved by 1% of McDonald’s 34,000 worldwide franchisees.

“Since meeting the Lewis Craig team back in 2014, we have maintained a very close relationship, and have been overwhelmed with their commitment to excellence, from finding us the perfect sites, through to a detailed acquisition and negotiation strategy. We look forward to a continued working relationship as we move to the next stages of our development.”
