What Bone Daddies said

Founder Ross Shonhan said:

I’m obviously pleased with the results we’ve just published for the business, and am immensely proud of the teams at all of our restaurants who have worked hard to push the business towards our targets [...] What’s always been important to me is that our business expansion should feel genuine and not forced.
