Piper takes a stake in Flat Iron

Piper, the UK’s leading specialist investor in consumer brands and recognised expert in the hospitality sector, has made a significant minority investment in Flat Iron, the much loved steak restaurant group. The first Flat Iron was founded by Charlie Carroll in 2012 as a pop up above a London pub and proved such a success
I wanted to work with a partner who shared my vision for Flat Iron and my ambition to build restaurants that focus on being better and different at every stage of the guest experience.
