Best Newcomer

Alliance of Independent Restaurants

AIR aims to truly unite the vast number of Independent restaurants and hospitality outlets in the UK, giving them the support and – crucially – the purchasing advantages from which our bigger competitors benefit each and every day … often at the expense of the hardworking Independent. We call ourselves an ‘alliance’ because we see ourselves as allies, not competitors. Every one of AIR’s Members is connected in one way or another to an Independent restaurant or hospitality outlet: you either own one, operate one, supply one or offer professional services to one. Together, we are very powerful. Our dream is for AIR to become the go-to organisation for every Independent hospitality business in the country, for support and benefits alike.
