Growth Company Index 2017: Turtle Bay comes out of its shell to win this year's award

August 16, 2017

The AlixPartners Growth Company Index—produced in partnership with leisure insight and business intelligence house MCA—analyzes the fastest growing companies in the UK eating and drinking-out sector. Because the market has tightened considerably compared to early 2016, this 2017 edition will likely be a high-water mark for industry growth rates across our index.

At a glance

  • Becoming one of Britain’s top 50 fastest growing eating and drinking-out companies has never been harder.
  • Turtle Bay’s success illustrates how a clearly defined concept with broad consumer appeal, combined with a strong financial model, can support a significant roll-out program.
  • Private equity remains a substantial and significantly positive force in the market, driving investment, growth and job creation.
  • As the boundaries between many bar, pub and restaurant groups continue to blur, defining which is which is increasingly more art than science.
