San Carlo Visit Abbey College Manchester

Abbey College Manchester enjoyed a taste of Italy as Marcello Distefano, managing director of San Carlo, the biggest family owned restaurant business in the UK, visited the college. Marcello was given a tour of the college and our new facilities, he said the art studio and the business classrooms brought back happy memories for him.

Marcello then gave an engaging and entertaining talk to our business students, talking about his business’ humble beginnings, its later success, current operations and gave some hints about their future plans, before a quick Q&A session with the students. The students were very inspired by Marcello’s talk and many are still talking about it days later.

Marcello said he really enjoyed himself and that he found our students engaging, intelligent and fun. At the end of his visit he was presented with a small token of appreciation. We look forward to our next meeting with Marcello in the future.

Abbey College Manchester is part of the Abbey DLD Group of Colleges.
