Prezzo was also a finalist in Best Mental Health Strategy at the Employee Benefits Awards 2021 and is delighted to have its commitment to employees recognised in this way. Employee health and well-being is a vital area of focus for Prezzo and this accolade is a fantastic boost to their efforts and will spur them on to be ever better.

The leading restaurant chain also competed against 500 other companies and won the International Green Apple Environment Award for Environment Best Practice as well as being shortlisted for “recycling excellence” and “partnership excellence” at the National Recycling Awards. The final NRA results will be announced on the 8th December 2021.

Karen Jones, Executive Chair, Prezzo said:

“As a group of Italian restaurants, we are extremely proud to have won such an award and to have our delicious pizza acknowledged as the best. Thank you PAPA!

And last week we turned 21! It really does feel like a coming of age as here we are, flourishing and happy and focussed on serving delicious food to our lovely customers.

Thank you to all who have noticed what we are doing – and as ever, thank you to all our Prezzo people who do such fantastic work day after day.”
