Brasserie Bar Co gets set for growth with new appointment

Brasserie Bar Co has appointed Ed Little, formerly Property Director of RedCat Pub Company, as Group Property Director. This appointment will be effective from 5 October.

Ed brings considerable experience to the Brasserie Bar Co board with a career spanning more than fifteen years working with publicly listed and venture capitalist-backed leisure companies - including participating in the sale of Hawthorn Leisure to Admiral Pub Company.

Brasserie Bar Co currently operates 32 sites across its Brasserie Blanc and White Brasserie pub formats. The business received investment from the private equity fund Alchemy Partners in February 2022 and is now fully funded to grow to 70 sites over the next three to five years.

Ed will work closely with existing Property Director, Jeremy Brown who will take on the newly created role of Acquisitions Director, dedicating 100% of his time to finding the right sites to meet the company’s ambitious growth plans.

Richard Ferrier, Managing Director, said, “We are delighted that Ed is joining the senior Brasserie Bar Co team. He brings with him a wealth of experience, particularly in freehold pubs where our acquisition plans are focussed.

'I would also like to thank Jeremy Brown for the incredible job he has done to date. I am sure that Ed and Jeremy will create a formidable working partnership that will underpin Brasserie Bar Co’s ambitious property strategy.”
