What does your company do? Fazenda offers all the tradition behind the unique Brazilian way of serving. Our approach is simple: the finest grilled meats served at our guests’ tables, alongside a gourmet salad bar and an exquisite wine list.


How did it all start? I met my now business partner, a fellow Argentinian, at a food festival. Over time, we discovered our shared passion for excellent food. Soon a passion became a business plan, and a business plan became our first restaurant in 2010.


What’s your greatest achievement so far? I am very proud that as a brand we are at the top of our game, in what is a very difficult time in our industry. Last year we were shortlisted by ‘The Caterer’ as one of the best places to work in hospitality – we were the only restaurant operator nominated.


What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken – and did it work out? Launching a business requires a leap of faith, and opening our first restaurant in Leeds was a huge leap that paid off. Since then we have launched another brand, Picanha, and opened another five restaurants.


What keeps you awake at night? Paranoia of something bad happening to any of our restaurants – all senior members of


any business I am sure suffer similar fears at night.


If you could turn the clock back, what would you do differently? Nothing. As I believe all of the experience I have had over the years, both the good and bad, has helped develop the business into what it is today.


Which business do you most admire? I have admiration for any company that wants grow and aims to be a market leader, but never forgets its roots, and maintains the culture it had from day one. Right now, Monzo are a perfect example of that.


What exciting projects is your business working on? We are growing our business and planning to offer even more special dining experiences for our guests this year.


What made you join Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce and how are you making use of your membership? We never doubted the Chamber’s abilities to help with introducing us to influential companies in the city. We’ve already seen the networking advantages it provides for both young people and established professionals, and we’re excited to work together.
