Welsh Business News/ WelshBiz – Marco Pierre White looking to open a restaurant in Swansea later in the year…

One of the country’s most famous chefs is to open a new restaurant in Swansea.

The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill will open at The J-Shed in the popular SA1 area of the city and is expected to start welcoming guests in the early summer.

Regarded by many to be the greatest ever UK chef, the famed restaurateur has led the UK gastronomy scene for over 30 years and is regarded by many to have single-handedly dragged it to being at the forefront of modern cooking. 

Having helped kick-start the careers of many famous chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal and Jason Atherton, all of whom trained under him, he has now confirmed that his latest restaurant will be at the popular waterside location which has undergone a renaissance in recent years.

Famed for his no-nonsense approach, he is looking forward to bringing his own brand of dining to the city with the restaurant comprising everything you would expect from a traditional steakhouse but with the superior quality synonymous from someone of his reputation.

The new Steakhouse Bar & Grill will replace what was La Parrilla which closed in January and follows a deal between business partners Steve Lewis and David Bellis who have acquired the property, and Black and White Hospitality, which is the franchising arm of Pierre White’s restaurants.

Bringing to life Marco’s own philosophy of what he describes as ‘affordable glamour’, the Steakhouse Bar & Grill’s exciting and dining experience includes signature steaks, and timeless English and French classics.

The menu is exclusively curated by Marco himself and includes a mix of childhood favourites and modern-day delicacies. The restaurant will also serve a delicious range of cocktails that are perfectly matched to the venue’s waterside location which will boast outside seating area.

The team has now started work on getting the new venue ready to open later in the year in line with the high expectations of today’s business and leisure guests.

Steve Lewis said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working alongside Black & White Hospitality on this exciting restaurant and bar scheme; this is great news for the city and is fantastic news for the regeneration of the area.

“It’s a hugely exciting addition that will, we believe, offer a first-class drinking and dining experience and is perfect for this stunning waterside location.”

David added: “The arrival of Marco’s steakhouse will further reinforce Swansea as an up and coming food and drink destination, raising the bar once more in terms of what people can come to expect at hospitality venues in the city. We look forward to welcoming guests when it opens early summer.  

I have been heavily involved in hospitality in this area and South Wales since early 2017 and the passion for great food and drink is just continuing to grow. With the appetite for this style of bar and food collaboration ever increasing, this opportunity is one that greatly excites my business partner Steve and I. 

“I’d also like to thank Leader of Swansea Council Rob Stewart who has been very supportive in helping us bring this well known brand to the city. Years ago Rob and I met and talked passionately about the regeneration of the waterside and this deal is another piece of the jigsaw that will help make Swansea a fantastic destination for both business and leisure. It’s great to see forecasted investment and regeneration coming to fruition and I hope that it encourages others to further invest into Swansea city.”

Leader of Swansea Council, Rob Stewart said: 

“I’m hugely excited that Marco Pierre White will be bringing a fantastic dining experience to Swansea. Our city is seeing huge investment and regeneration at present including our new Digital arena complex, helping us become a wonderful new 21st Century destination. I want to pay tribute to David and Steve for their work in helping regenerate Swansea’s hospitality experience and for bringing the brand to Swansea. I’m sure it will be a huge success and is a welcome addition to our city” 

Nick Taplin, Chairman and CEO of Black and White Hospitality added:
“This is fantastic news for Swansea and will be Marco’s second restaurant in Wales. The Steakhouse fits perfectly with The J-Shed and will help to attract more people to enjoy food and drink on Swansea’s burgeoning waterside. This is an amazing opportunity for everyone and we look forward to our second but not last restaurant in Wales.”

Some highlights from the @GrantCardone #10xUKTour In London, UK 🇬🇧…

The 10xUKTour, a Grant Cardone Entrepreneur Training Event put on by PMW & Thrive Assets In London on Friday and Saturday, at the 02 Intercontinental Hotel, was awesome! 👌

It was great to see so many UK and European Entrepreneurs all in one room, all there as they wanted to learn from a Sales & Marketing master and uncle GC didn’t let anyone down!

Grant Cardone In London, UK

The Leading US Sales Trainer and Marketing Entrepreneur gave the audience of approx 2,000, lots of great sales & marketing advice as well as great investment advice about what to do with your money once you have made it!

The top US Sales & Marketing Trainer and Business Entrepreneur was joined by many other top Entrepreneurs including his Wife Elena Cardone as well as the people responsible for bringing Grant Cardone to the UK for the #10xUKTour 🇬🇧, Paul McFadden and Billy Farrell from PMW, Matt Soltys from Thrive Assets, Mark Wright from Climb Online and the Apprentice TV series and our very own leading Welsh Entrepreneurs, Paul & Tracey from Introbiz.

Former Apprentice Winner & Current ClimbOnline Managing Director Mark Wright at the 10x UK Tour 🇬🇧

Mark Wright hosted and competed the two day business seminar and entrepreneur event and done a magnificent job. As well as sharing his insights on business, the apprentice, working with Lord Sugar and building a successful, post Apprentice, business. Mark Wright also shared lots of useful digital marketing tips and advice.

This included using schedulers for social scheduling, implementing chatbots in your business, doing lots of social media marketing, especially video marketing on Youtube and “Lives” on Facebook and more importantly these days Instagram.

Billy Farrell from Paul McFadden Wealth (PMW)

Day one also witnessed a great inspiring speech by Billy Farrell from Event hosts PMW about how he turned his life around from a dark spot in his younger days to where he is now.

There was no mistaking who was star of the show though as Uncle GC delivered the majority of the content over the two days, starting of in the morning of day one, on finances and trying to get people to break down the limiting mindsets that stop people from being successful.

Grant Cardone then finished off day one with his tips, advice and training on marketing, and how to get noticed – #HEY!

Grant demonstrated “going lives” and other real time Social Media post and gave great insights like having a great content strategy, “Quantity over Quality” and being an all platforms (advice I too subscribe to and give to others as well)!

Day two kicked off with Mark Wright interviewing one of the Stars of the show Elena Cardone…

Elena gave some great advice on being an Entrepreneurs Wife, an Entrepreneurial mum and an amazing women!

She also talk about her new book which Grant helped her to finish, with the encouragement that she was being “lazy and cowardly” when she struggled to complete the book part way through.

Elena Cardone also discussed and inspired the audience on topics such as supporting an Entrepreneur to achieve rather than putting pressure or the breaks on, and using hired help to do the mundane tasks that need to be completed, so that time can be better invested in work or family time.

From the sounds of its description, during the chat, I would highly recommend Entrepreneurs and the women married to Entrepreneurs to buy and read her book! 📚

Paul McFadden of Paul McFadden Wealth (PMW)…

Day 2 saw one of the hosts Paul McFadden from PMW give an inspiring and knowledgeable talk on investing in the property business and how to start off making introducer deals, rather than building your own property portfolio until you get to understand the property world better,something that can be achieved without any wealth to begin with.

The softly spoken but highly engaging Scottish Property Entrepreneur explained how he could help people follow in his property wealth building footsteps by engaging with him in his property training courses.

Grant Cardone’s sales training…

The 2day 10x UK Tour 🇬🇧 event for Business Entrepreneurs finished off with more from Uncle G, where he went more in depth on sales routines and practices to follow in order to become a better sales person and business entrepreneur.

Although Grant Cardone sold a number of times throughout the event it was not the typical “Sales Event” to get people in to a room in order to sell you something and the sales & marketing tips and advice were genuine and delivered by a genuine and authentic master of the art of getting noticed (marketing) and getting business (selling)!

“All in all this was a great event for Entrepreneurs…”

Serena, the unexpected star of the show 🌟

There was one unexpected star of the show that needed a special mention and that was Serena.

Serena managed to hustle the room for £450 by running 18 laps of the venue, taking over from another lad who was promised £100 if he done 20 laps but gave up after only two very exhausting laps.

Serena boldly stepped in to complete the task and did so to a rapturous applause 👏 and the rapid donation of various paper bills in a variety of denominations which was later accrued to be worth £450.

Serena was letter shown a valuable business lesson when having to split her win fall with the young lad who introduced the deal in the first place, and the house “who always gets its cut” but still it was a great windfall for the budding Entrepreneur.
