Favourite PH Dish: It changes daily as I like every food under the sun … but at present it is the Salt Beef Sandwich.

Most Favourite Movie: Again very difficult …. Changes with my mood … Breakfast at Tiffanys is an all time fav … so is Close Encounters of the Third Kind … Kill Bill is a cracker of a film both Volumes …. loved my teenage years of movies like the Breakfast Club … to many to really make a sensible choice!

Peter Cording

In May 2014, we saw ‘The return of a Planet Hollywood London Legend, Peter Cording’ who came back to his ‘second home’ in the position of Assistant General Manager.

Fast forward a year and we have ‘The rise of a Planet Hollywood London Legend, Peter Cording’ who as of …. now is General Manager of Planet Hollywood London.


For those who do not know, Pete has worked with the company for over a decade, primarily in the role of Senior Restaurant Manager at Planet Hollywood, but also for 18 months in one of our other operations, the fine dining restaurant ‘Rama’ at 50 St James.


His understanding of the day to day running of our business is second to none and he is a tremendous asset to the team. Pete brings his outstanding operational ability, presence, energy and fantastic people skills to our environment on a daily basis.

Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris

VITOR CARVALHO

It was with great pleasure that as of 18th May 2015, Vitor Carvalho returned to the Planet Hollywood family as Assistant General Manager for Disneyland Paris.


Vitor had worked with the company for over a decade, primarily in the role of Senior Restaurant Manager at Planet Hollywood London, but he also worked as a Restaurant Manager in Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, New York, Paris and also helped out for four months in Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris in 2009 while the new Planet Hollywood in London was being built.


After 3 years working in the UAE setting up two restaurant operations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for Shake Shack as General Manager, we offered Vitor the opportunity to return to Europe and join the Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris team and we were delighted when he accepted the opportunity and challenge.


Some of you may remember Vitor and will have worked with him before. His operational ability, high energy, presence and people skills bring enormous benefit to the Disneyland Paris restaurant. He is a tremendous asset to our brand and we are delighted to have him back in the team!

A BIG GOOD BYE TO DOUGLAS INMAN

A big Good Bye to Douglas Inman, Director of Finance & Administration for both Planet Hollywood and Earl of Sandwich, Disneyland Paris, who is leaving us for pastures new.


Douglas has worked with us at DLP for the past four years and has in that time made a big impact and outstanding contribution to both businesses.


He has a fabulous opportunity in a high level position of COO with a firm in central Paris, which is also far closer to his home and he feels it is an offer he can't refuse.


Please join us in wishing Douglas the best of luck for his future role. He will be sorely missed.
