Although stressful, I’d always envied them! So now it’s my turn! I teamed up with Bibars Ozdamir who ran the critically acclaimed Ozz restaurant on the same site as Firebrand. It’s a partnership that works very well – although I managed a restaurant and bar for 8 years, that was 9 years ago, so his knowledge is very current. Furthermore my background is more casual dining, his fine dining so both bring different skill sets.
Pizza is the most popular food in the country and so the pizza restaurant market is extremely competitive, although there’s not many competitors in our immediate vicinity. For Firebrand Pizza I wanted to create a brand that was upmarket, clean and distinguishable which entices local office workers, especially those 7,000 at BNP Paribas, as well as commuters using Marylebone station and local residents. A key part of the brand is the wood burning pizza oven – one of the reasons we choose Firebrand as the name. Therefore adding flames to a pizza paddle seemed a natural choice. We have worked hard on creating the branding guide which includes:

Ethos & Philosophy
