Hospitality industry poised for booming Easter weekend

This is Stuart Mclean receiving the Top 100 Companies award
We are proud to be listed for the first time in the Grant Thornton’s annual Top 100 Private Companies in Scotland.

Grant Thornton’s annual Scotland Limited report identifies the country’s top 100 limited companies and explores what lies behind their position as Scotland’s most dynamic, fastest growing businesses. In its fifth year, the report also provides a valuable yardstick against which the country can assess its economic performance, and businesses can benchmark themselves against their peers.

The recognition for Zonal comes as the family firm celebrates 40 years since it was founded by Ralph McLean, who developed the first EPoS system for the hospitality sector.  Today, the Edinburgh based company is run by Ralph’s son and chief executive, Stuart McLean.

Stuart said: “I am delighted that Zonal has been recognised as a top 100 private company in Scotland.  My father would be so proud of our success and our growth over the decades through technology innovation and jobs creation here in Scotland and throughout the UK.

Today, we are a major employer with over 650 staff who work tirelessly to make Zonal the success story it is.”

The Scotland Limited report identified that private firms contributed EBITDA of more than £2.7 billion to the economy.

Andrew Howie, managing partner of Grant Thornton Glasgow said: “Scotland Limited offers a degree of optimism and reassurance. The top 100 companies have all demonstrated that our country’s economy is diverse, robust and resilient.”
