The New World Trading Company Feasts on Four Awards

The North West based group, which currently operates 24 restaurants and bars across the UK (under The Botanist, The Oast House, The Florist, The Smugglers Cove, The Trading House, The Club House and The Canal House), scooped four awards at Wednesday’s (27th February) Casual Dining Restaurant & Pub Awards 2019 in London.


NWTC beat-off stiff competition from eight other organisations including national chains Pizza Express, wagamama and BrewDog to win the hotly contested ‘Employer of the Year’. This caps a great start to the year, which has already seen The New World Trading Company climb two places to rank fifth in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For 2019 (mid-sized companies).   


Other wins at the Casual Dining awards include New Casual Dining Concept of the Year, which was picked-up by the group’s floral inspired brand, The Florist. The win recognises the brand’s success in creating venues that, like flowers, charm guest’s senses. The Florist in Liverpool, which opened less than 12 months ago in April 2018, won two awards including Best New Restaurant Site and Best Designed Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year.


Chris Hill, CEO of The New World Trading Company, comments: “Our team has a real passion to be innovative and original, investing a great deal of time and energy in perfecting everything they do. This creates a vibrant workplace culture and inspires the creation and delivery of restaurants and bars that stand-out in the highly competitive casual dining sector.


“It’s fantastic to win the awards, not just because it recognises the hard work of our teams across the country, but because it shows they’re getting it right for our guests. I know the team find this a highly-motivating factor.”


Having enjoyed a well-earned night-out at the awards, which took place at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square London, the team is now getting their tuxedos and dresses dry-cleaned in time for the Publican Awards 2019. Taking place on 12th March, The New World Trading Company is shortlisted in six categories at the awards.
