Maxwell’s, which operates its eponymous brand as well as Café de Paris, Sticky Fingers and Southern’s Joes among other brands, has submitted a licensing application for the site. The group was set up in 1972 with the aim of bringing “good quality American casual dining and service standards to the London restaurant scene”. It leaves Muriel’s, the restaurant and deli concept set up by Charlotte Miller, with just one site – in South Kensington. It had grown to four sites in total at one point.
At a time when rents and premiums have dominated debate in the sector, with the woes of burger brand Byron being blamed partly on such liabilities, Yard Sale Pizza has no such concerns. The fledgling pizza restaurant and delivery operator, which will later this month open its fourth London venue, in Leytonstone, has built a successful business model around taking on unwanted, and often very cheap sites in underdeveloped but up-and-coming areas, predominantly in and around Hackney, east London.
The restaurant will see the brand extend its typically quick-service offer to a more fast-casual style, with counter ordering and food brought to the table. It will also offer an extended menu that will feature more side dishes to encourage longer linger time. Rola Wala, which has sites in Leeds Trinity Kitchen, Oxford Westgate and Spitalfields, will draw on its time at London street food night market Street Feast for the new menu items, which will include as lollipop chicken and bahji fries.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
