Carluccio calls in Hogarth for float

Carluccio, the food shop and restaurant chain, has drafted in financial PR specialist The Hogarth Partnership to whet investors’ appetites ahead of its planned listing on London’s Alternative Investment Market.

The chain, whose president is Italian celebrity chef Antonio Carluccio, this Wednesday announced  its intention to float on AIM in December.

It has been said that the company's portfolio of 23 all-day trading cafés and shops, which does not include Carluccio's restaurant in Covent Garden's Neal Street, could encourage investors to push the company's value to £55m.

The Carluccio group recently announced an operating profit of £3.5m on revenues of £36.8m in the year to September.
