Graphite Capital backs MBO of Hawksmoor

Graphite Capital has backed the management buy-out of Hawksmoor, operator of four successful, high-end steak restaurants in London. Hawksmoor was started by childhood friends, Will Beckett and Huw Gott, who have created a distinctly British steakhouse where the provision of consistently high quality beef and strong customer service are paramount. Graphite’s investment provides an exit for the friends and family investors who had funded Hawksmoor’s early expansion.
