Tim Allen will no longer be executive director of Food and Beverage at Select Property Group in central Manchester.

On December 28, former executive chef of the Wild Rabbit, Tim Allen posted a message to his instagram account announcing that the Manchester plans with Select Property Group had fallen through.

In the post he writes, "Life is full of twists and turns......Manchester is no more unfortunately - however, watch this space exciting news on the way for 2018."

In the same post, Tim used a quote taken from Select Property Group confirming the news.

The quote says, "We have been working with chef Tim Allen for the last 3 months on a new restaurant concept in Manchester.
After full and careful joint consideration we have concluded that the economics of this operation do not work for either party.
We thank Tim for his extremely valuable contribution to the project during his time with us and we wish him every success in all his future endeavours". 

In his new post as executive director of Food and Beverage, Tim would have worked with each of Select’s customer focused brand teams focusing on their food and beverage offering.

At the time Tim said: “Having built a reputation for producing quality food and operating successful businesses, launching the joint venture restaurant, as well as honing Select’s food and beverage approach is a logical step in my career and I can’t wait to get started.

“My focus is simple. I want to produce consistent, quality food with products that are treat well and taste incredible. What we’re creating on Chapel Street will be amazing and that’s only just the beginning.”

Group CEO, Mark Stott, had added: “We have people across Select that are experts in their disciplines, so we needed someone with exceptional talent to come on board and drive our Food and Beverage operations. Tim has the same energy, vision and creativity as Select and it’s great to have him on board.”

Prior to his positions at The Wild Rabbit and Launceston Place, Tim was senior sous chef at the two-Michelin-starred Whatley Manor in the Cotswolds, where he spent seven years under head chef Martin Burge. He previously spent four years with John Burton-Race, first at L’Ortolan and then at The Landmark. He also appeared on BBC2’s Great British Menu in 2015.
