Steven Kamali, ceo of Hospitality House has added Foodservice Planning and Design to his suite of services by acquiring Hicks Design Group.
Hicks is known for its work on such properties as Soho House and Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The firm has also worked with several famous chefs, including Daniel Boulud, Todd English, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Tom Colicchio.
The creation of the Foodservice Design practice complements strong growth for Hospitality House’s London office. Since opening an official outpost in 2016, Hospitality House EMEA has recorded a 200% increase in revenue over nearly two years. Additionally, the firm has a healthy pipeline of high-profile hotel, restaurant and corporate projects.
“Adding an in-house Foodservice Design team was an organic next step for us. We anticipate growing their business by 400% by engaging in over 50 new projects in the coming year,” says Kamali.
Cody Hicks, the founder of Hicks Design Group will join as managing partner of HH’s newly formed division.
