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.
