Josh Kleiner, Owner at Sandwich Sandwich said: ‘It is difficult to put into words how much being announced as the winner of the Uber Eats Restaurant of the Year Awards means to us. 

‘The process has been so exciting from start to finish and it has been incredible to take part alongside the other finalists. Big shout out to our restaurant team back home in Bristol, our family and of course Uber Eats for the support in getting us to this moment. This investment will make our ambitions to grow as a family business a reality.’

Matthew Price, Regional General Manager of Uber Eats in UKI and Northern Europe said: ‘Huge congratulations to Sandwich Sandwich, the winner of our Restaurant of the Year, who saw off stiff competition from thousands of other restaurants to be crowned the winner! 

‘It has been a very challenging time for small restaurants up and down the country which have faced skyrocketing food costs and energy bills. We want to play our role in helping to support and champion the best small businesses and under-represented groups within the restaurant industry through our awards.’

This year’s Awards has focused on supporting the independent businesses who have been at the coalface of the difficult economic conditions the country has faced.

A recent Uber Eats survey of its restaurant partners found that 65 per cent of merchants feel they are short staffed, while 70 per cent cite inflation and 64 per cent energy costs as being amongst their primary business concerns.

Sandwich, Sandwich beat out regional winners from across the country.

In London, Broritto’s has been named the best.
