Carluccio’s has appointed Matt Dale as its new head of food operations, further strengthening the brand’s transformation team. He joins with a wealth of experience, having previously held a senior food operations role at Bill’s restaurants in London, including involvement in the group’s most recent 2020 refurbishments. Prior to this, Dale spent 10 years with Oceanico Resorts in Portugal’s Algarve, leading the food and beverage concepts as group chef.
Carluccio’s CEO Mark Jones said: “We are thrilled to welcome someone of Matt’s experience and aptitude. Revitalising our menu is an essential component of our Fresca programme and we look forward to elevating this part of the business with his help.”
Dale added: “Carluccio’s has an incredible heritage. The late Antonio Carluccio’s food legacy is one of authentic, fuss-free Italian recipes using the best quality ingredients. I look forward to carrying forward this ethos as we update and modernise the menu in line with the brand’s revitalisation programme.”
