Top Track 250

This hospitality and leisure group operates more than 50 venues across Scotland, including nightclubs, restaurants, cinemas, a casino and what’s claimed to be Scotland’s smallest pub. The Glasgow-based business grew sales in the year by 69% to £123.6m, helped by business from the five-star Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh, which it purchased in 2017. Under managing director and founder Stefan King, 56, the group plans to transform a 115-year-old Aberdeen church into a five-storey restaurant.
