Franco Manca's food is excellent. They use fantastic ingredients presented on the best pizza I've ever tasted. Having said that, does anyone agree that the cutlery and seating is poor? Cheap/Shabby Chic I would call it - uncomfortable church hall seats etc. I think they would do much better to match the quality of the food and improve the diner's physical experience and slightly increase prices to offset. I'm sure that this chain could grow very big internationally if it were managed well. I notice that the shares are quite lowly at the moment, but wondered what others on here thought. I know that the chairman has had a very successful past but why should we have confidence in the management's ability to grow it from here?

Hybrasil - hope all is well? I don't hold any. Just interested. The restaurant sector is interesting, but one to avoid at the moment. I'm only 10-15 per cent real estate. With negative earnings growth, a recession on the way, an over supplied market and massive cost inflation it's a very brave man to invest in this sector. Might be some good opportunities in a year or so, but too early. The concept is OK - tried one over the summer. Think it's a bit of a trendy one minute, dead the next format though!

Chairman David Page said: "The summer should have been one of the busiest periods of our financial year and the weak trading across the dining out market that we also experienced has impacted this year's overall performance."Some of our pre-2017 restaurants, particularly in the London suburbs, are still experiencing revenue below the equivalent period a year earlier with increased volatility."However, revenue from these restaurants have seen slight improvements from the poor summer period of July to September."Fulham Shore issued a profit warning in September after it was hit by a slowdown in trade in July and August, particularly at its suburban London restaurants.The group again referenced a "challenging backdrop" that is dogging the sector, including rising inflation, poor consumer confidence and a weakening economy.The pound's collapse since the Brexit vote has sent costs for businesses soaring and diminished consumer spending power, resulting in people eating out less often.Mr Page added: "We will respond to the economic climate in the next 24 months as we find it, as we believe these factors will continue to affect the restaurant sector in the coming years, limiting our visibility for the second half and beyond."

Topvest how does a seasoned property investor like you (and I know you have been on these boards for a very long time) end up on a share like this?

This has a lot further to fall. It's a good format but trading is soft and the P/E ratio is ridiculous.

In this instance we are not debating if the pizza is good or not. We are talking about the prices after toppings are added in and pricing power. Fact is they are experiencing challenging trading. So for some they are seen as expensive pizzas which negates your comment about being cheap compared to burgers in Byron. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/franco-manca-shares-drop-fulham-store-brexit-market-conditions-pizza-restaurants-a7931746.html

LBO does his homework and while I dont necessarily like his views his pessimism on the sector has been correct.

So 74% of 137 reviews of Franco Manca on trip advisor rate them either 'excellent' or 'very good'. Despite your constant carping the dining public appear to wholeheartedly disagree with you LBO.

If they were really seen as cheap by customers then they could raise prices but they can't as they are not cheap compared to others when you add the toppings in https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d7993676-r406118898-Franco_Manca-London_England.html https://www.tripadvisor.com/LocationPhotoDirectLink-g186338-d7993676-i210558020-Franco_Manca-London_England.html https://www.bristol247.com/food-and-drink/restaurants/franco-manca-restaurant-review/

At least finish the sentence LBO: "and an inability to raise menu prices, which it described as “one of the fundamental reasons for the success” of both its major chains." Cheap prices compared to other groups such as Byron's 'improper burger' will ensure Fulham Shore's survival and future growth.

Not according to the company itself. https://www.ft.com/content/3dd8819a-d5e6-11e7-a303-9060cb1e5f44 It has also found custom has slowed, with restaurants in London’s suburbs worst affected by what it described as a “sector-wide trading pattern”. Fulham Shore has found itself squeezed by higher costs and an inability to raise menu prices

Byron and their overpriced McDonald's burger were always going to be a casualty. Nothing to compare with Franco's.

LBO, At least, for balance, quote the top rated comment in the section below the obviously knocking copy: 'What has Franco Manca done to upset the Bristol Post? On 12 Sept and 8 Nov, puff pieces about the restaurant were published and now it's being slated. I reckon they didn't agree to the request for free pizzas to be delivered to 1 Temple Way.' Furthermore, the headline says "Bristol's new pizza on the block Franco Manca deemed 'soggy and too floppy to pick up'" whilst in the article itself is a photograph of what looks to be a perfectly cooked Franco Manca pizza, totally at odds with what the person writing the article described it as.
