Danciger joined Wyevale in December 2013 from Marks & Spencer, where he was head of hospitality. Wyevale is rolling out a series of refurbs of its cafes.

The 151-chain now has three catering brands including Botanic Kitchen, a "restaurant offering the garden on a plate" that launched in early 2015, as well as Coffee Ground "micro-roasting artisan coffee shops" and Garden Kitchen Restaurants "bringing a sparkle". Wyevale has also introduced Costa Coffees into many of its centres.

Wyevale said: "As WGC considers the right management structure to drive continued future growth, we have decided to simplify our garden centre and food & beverage operational structures to offer a seamless experience across our customers' whole visit.

"As a result of this restructure and after two successful years transforming our restaurants, coffee shops and cafés, Jason Danciger, F&B Director, will be leaving the business, as he is keen to pursue his interests in the restaurant industry. 

"Jason has been absolutely instrumental in the design and launch of our new Botanic Kitchen, Garden Kitchen and Coffee Ground concepts, as well as creating a fantastic partnership to roll out Costa units across WGC.

"Jason has transformed the look, feel and quality of our food and beverage offering across the business, and we'd like to thank him for his support and creativity and wish him well for the future."
