The reality television series Kitchen Nightmares may have proved a nightmare for lacklustre chefs across Britain, but it has done no harm to Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant business. Gordon Ramsay Holdings has three London restaurants, including the most successful – Ramsay at Claridge’s – and three restaurants jointly owned with chefs Angela Hartnett and Marcus Wareing. Driven by the continuing upward march of Ramsay’s celebrity, and defying a general downturn in its sector, the group has boosted sales 84% a year, from £5m in 2001 to £31m in 2004.

This profile reflects the company at time of publication and does not reflect any changes that may have subsequently occurred. Fast Track and its sponsors do not endorse, guarantee or recommend investment in any of the companies.
