Peyton & Byrne… raised to perfection

RSM corporate finance has successfully provided buy side due diligence and advice on the Business Growth Fund’s investment in Peyton & Byrne.

The client

Peyton & Byrne was jointly founded by Oliver Peyton (one of the judges on the BBC’s ‘Great British Menu’) and his sister Siobhan Peyton. It manages and operates restaurants at iconic venues such as Kew Gardens and the National Gallery and has become famous for offering its diners the best of British produce prepared by chefs with a real passion for food. In addition, it has an established own branded multisite bakery/cafe concept, known for its beautiful design and tasty products, which will now be the subject of a high street roll out supported by Business Growth Fund.
