Peach 20/20 Start Up Hub Podcast: Sessions Market: The industry ‘record label’ for food talent with Dan Warne

Atlantic Club Austin 2023

Dan Warne CEO at Sessions Market knows a thing or two about restaurant tech. The former MD of Deliveroo is now creating an integrated, hybrid platform where new and exciting food brands can scale and grow by accessing both physical and digital routes to market. In fact, it’s a whole new blueprint for nurturing and growing brands.

The first Sessions Market food hall opened in Shelter Hall on Brighton’s seafront pre- pandemic to great reviews - but the customer-facing, physical incarnation of the “platform” is only the tip of the iceberg.

Peter Martin speaks to Dan about his radical vision: to create an ecosystem that combines food halls with ready access to a network of commercial kitchens nationwide and the data and digital tools to accelerate the growth of founder-led food brands across all channels – dine-in, delivery and take-away.

At the start of this year, the business announced it had raised £7.3m towards its own expansion plans, including opening two more food halls in 2022 and 500 kitchens that will test, incubate and scale the most exciting and popular new food concepts in the market and create the next generation of national restaurant brands.
