Forming part of the company’s ambitious growth plans for 2018 - having seen like-for-like sales increase by 3.7% for the year-end 2017, and total turnover up 34% at £37.4 million - the new concept will follow additional openings in both Clapham and Reading. Group executive chairman Clive Watson said: “Trading was robust over the festive period and throughout 2017. “Our new openings are performing well and we are excited about our recent high-quality acquisitions.
Currently operating from its first (and only) Brighton restaurant, the new venue will cater for up to 100 diners over two floors, where it will serve its entirely vegan menu of “plant-based classic Italian dishes,” including pizzas, pastas, raw dishes and gluten-free food. Claiming “Purezza is committed to ‘inclusive eating’ and aims to serve a fantastic meal to all diners, regardless of dietary choices or restrictions” co-founder and operator Tim Barclay said.
In a repeat of last year’s festive trading, the six weeks to 7 January 2018 saw drink-led businesses profit the most, while restaurant chains suffered a collective like-for-like decline of -1%. CGA vice president Peter Martin explained: “The public still went out to eat and drink, but essentially it was a repeat of last Christmas.
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".
