Hickory’s, the Piper-backed smokehouse operator, grew turnover 15% to £16.6m in the year to 30 April.

The latest accounts show group EBITDA before exceptional costs of £1.5m (2016 £1.3m).

Very pleased

Hickory’s, which was founded in Chester by Neil McDonnell in 2010, currently operates seven restaurants in Chester, West Kirby, Burton Green, Wall Heath, Rhos-on-Sea, Castle Bromwich and Southport, which opened in January 2018.

Managing director John Welsh: ‘We are very pleased with the latest figures, particularly as this period covers the Wall Heath fire and its aftermath.

"In challenging market conditions, we continue to expand across the country, with the successful recent opening of Southport and two further sites planned for the coming year.

"We look forward to introducing more guests and communities to the authentic Hickory’s experience.”
