6th February 2015

John Vincent is Co-founder and Chief Executive of Leon restaurants.  Raised in Enfield and educated at Cambridge, John Vincent went on to found the Leon restaurant chain with former colleague Henry Dimbleby - son of television presenter David Dimbleby.
 
In this London Live interview, he tells Evening Standard Business Commentator Chris Blackhurst that Leon has now expanded to include 21 restaurants and has ambitious expansion plans. He says there will eventually be “one big natural fast food chain in the world” and that his team want that to be Leon.
 
The Leon chain is named after his father and Mr Vincent says the founders' original ethos was to ask “if God did fast food?”.
 
When asked about healthy school meals, Mr Vincent, who advises the government on school nutrition, says “it's about the leadership of the Headteacher almost more than the law”.
