Premium restaurant brand Gusto now has all its staff in place ahead of its eagerly-anticipated launch in Leamington Spa.

The company has created 60 jobs at its new restaurant in the town’s thriving ‘food quarter’ in Regent Court, Livery Street, ahead of its official opening on Thursday, June 9, at 5pm.

Heading the team at Gusto’s first Midlands restaurant is general manager Tom Pitts, from Coventry. Alongside Tom, the team includes operations manager Joe Hull, who has been part of Living Ventures Group, Gusto’s parent company, for the past 11 years. Rob Dymond, originally from Bridgend, is assistant general manager, while Lizzie Armstrong is business development manager. Paul Stevenson, from Nuneaton, takes up the role of head chef.

Gusto managing director Sue Crimes said: “We’re pleased to have our new team in place, led by Tom. Leamington is a beautiful town and we are delighted to be opening here. The restaurant looks stunning and we hope to provide an aspirational dining experience for our customers.”
