Notes:

Wood-fired pizzeria chain Dough & Co is to open its fourth and fifth restaurants in East Anglia

Chris Sharman opened teh first Dough & Co in Sudbury in the summer of 2018, progressing with sites in Colchester and Bishop Stortford.

Now he is expanding his successful business, opening a restaurant in Halstead in October and another in the former Patisserie Valerie in Bury St Edmunds.

Sharman, an ex-chef and young entrepreneur, started the business in a horse box more than two years ago after 14 years working in fine dining.

He dropped out of school before completing work experience and training to become a chef, working at Michelin star restaurants alongside the likes of Marco Pierre White, and catering for big events at venues including Newmarket Racecourse.

The dough for the wood-fired pizzas is his own recipe, made with nothing but Italian flour, fresh yeast, olive oil and water, and all the toppings have been sourced from the finest suppliers.

Mr Sharman wants to open 50 restaurants, and said although his success has been “surreal”, he won’t be finished until he hits his target.

He also plans to open sites in Ipswich and Chelmsford.
