As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United explains, “This is always a fantastic evening where the family business community comes together to celebrate the very best of British family firms. Family firms are the engine room of the national economy and these awards celebrate all of their achievements. All of our winners are fantastic examples of great British family firms and it is a real honour to host these awards and celebrate with them.”

"The Pantry UK were deserving winners of the Entrepreneurship Family Business of the Year for 2024 as some leaders are intrinsically entrepreneurial and Luke Consiglio is one such individual but he is supported by a truly inspiring and entrepreneurial team that get things done."

"They are disruptors in their sector and commended for doing what they do which is all about creating food memories for a generation. Numerous family members work together in a business that continues to grow, winning numerous awards along the way and taking their entrepreneurial, can-do attitude is building a successful business that is making a difference."

"What started off as a humble sandwich shop on Hayes High Street is now a business employing 10 family members from 2 generations with a staff that is set to be over 1000 by the end of the year. They truly deserve all the accolades that winning the prestigious award affords them," concludes Paul.

As Luke Consiglio, Founder and CEO of The Pantry UK adds, "With one of just eight National Awards handed out at the ceremony, there’s an immense sense of pride in being recognised in a category against hundreds of other fantastic family business across the United Kingdom."

"To be recognised at the Family Business Awards is a huge honour for myself and The Pantry. We’ve always been a family business, and the Family Business Awards really are the flagship for companies like ours all over the country – so we’re truly humbled," reflected Luke.

"At a time when the Contract Catering Industry is facing a number of challenges to stay viable and relevant, we’re determined to show that we’re leading a new way forward at The Pantry – not just with a fantastic food offer, but with the kind of company support and engagement that shows that we’re More Than Food."

"We are absolutely delighted to have won this award." concludes Luke.
