Notes for editors


Information on The Fulham Shore PLC


Fulham Shore was incorporated in March 2012. The Directors believe that there are a number of potentially attractive investment opportunities within the restaurant and food service sectors in the UK.


The Directors believe that, given their collective experience in the restaurant and food service sectors, they can take advantage of the opportunities which exist in these sectors and create a profitable and sustainable business.


The ordinary shares of the Company were admitted to trading on AIM in October 2014 in order to capitalise on such opportunities.


Today Fulham Shore currently operates "The Real Greek" (www.therealgreek.com) and "Franco Manca" (www.francomanca.co.uk) restaurants, as well as a Bukowski Grill restaurant.


The Real Greek

Since establishing itself in 1999, The Real Greek group has grown steadily, now offering modern Greek cuisine in nine outlets across London and Windsor: Bankside (2004), Marylebone (2005), Covent Garden (2006), Westfield London (2008), Spitalfields (2008), Westfield Stratford City (2011), Windsor (2014), Soho (2015) and St. Martin's Lane (2015).


Ambassadors of Greek food and Greek hospitality in the UK, The Real Greek food centres on the delicious, healthy diet of the Eastern Mediterranean, staying true to the Greek ethos for food, family and life. Dishes are created using premium ingredients sourced from Greece and Cyprus whenever possible, and developed by Tonia Buxton, the face of Greek food in the UK.


Both The Real Greek's menu and atmosphere retains the spirit of eating in Greece, encouraging diners to take their time eating amongst friends and family, be it a relaxed dinner, family get-together, or fully catered party.


Franco Manca

Franco Manca's pizza is made from slow-rising sourdough and is baked in a wood-burning oven that produces a heat of about 500°c (930°F). The slow levitation and blast cooking process lock in the flour's natural aroma and moisture giving a soft and easily digestible crust. Where possible locally sourced and organic ingredients are used. Pizza prices range from £4.50 to £7.95.


"If you only eat in pizza this year, make sure it's Franco Manca" - Tatler
