Pep&Pepper is a fast-casual restaurant offering quality dishes with an a la carte cuisine touch. Our menu is fully customizable. The guests can create their favorite plate by combining one type of meat, the preferred garnish and salad. These three carefully prepared ingredients turn a simple meal into a delightful experience. The incredible taste of our marinated meat, the variety of garnishes (mashed potatoes, wedges, cooked vegetables, pasta, black rice, white rice) or the fact that each portion is individually cooked in a separate pan are among the reasons why our guests choose to embark on a Pep&Pepper culinary journey.

We desire a trustworthy relation with our customers and that is why chefs prepare all the dishes in front of them. Everyday our guests can see how the pasta is made fresh in the glassed-in manufacture. Focusing on the customer’s personal preference, we carefully craft our menus for maximum choice and taste. Pepp&Pepper offers the best balance between the minimum waiting time an the utmost delight of savor. Food is our passion! That is why every restaurant we open is a success story.

Through delicious and balanced meals Pep&Pepper aims to be the alternative in the food scene and one more reason for change in people’s dietary choices.To serve the best coffee under strict supervision of an internationally awarded champion led team of baristas and combine it with a unique brand environment and an honest brand voice.
Pep and Pepper strives to a place known for deliciously balanced meals great for an evening out or a lunch on the go.
Home-Style means food prepared on the spot, just for you. Although we’re fast-casual, great care goes into each dish. We only use tender and lean meat left to marinate for up to 12 hours, after a secret recipe with more than 14 condiments. Each day we prepare fresh pasta using eggs and natural ingredients: semolina flour, salt, and olive oil. With every order we serve a delicious and balanced meal that leaves you with a sense of well-being.

“The Tasty Brands team has helped me enormously with my business. They brought far more than cash to the table. I especially appreciated their network and relationships with suppliers, which had been a challenge as a fledgling company.”

Florin DanciCEO, Founder Nectario - Fresh Juice

"Working with the Tasty Brands team has helped Ebriza pilot and scale our innovative HORECA technology, going global quickly. The insights, access, network, and support the team has provided have been instrumental in improving our product and strategy to take our tech startup to the next level."

Cristian DinescuCEO, Cofounder Ebriza

"We're more than happy about working with the Tasty Business Venture Capital team. They are very open to entrepreneurs, and practice respect in the competitive environment and understand that the market offers opportunities on multiple segments. We’re glad to have them as a partner and we look forward to our future together."

Dani TiseCofounder Noodle Pack

“After the guys from SaladBox/Tasty Business invested in Donuterie, we were able to begin developing our franchise network at lightning speed. Their advising support helped us get things done quickly and properly. We’ve been able to open in more than 20 locations in under 18 months. As we continue to expand our operations and product offerings, their advising and support has been invaluable.”

Marius MunteanuCEO, Cofounder Donuterie

"We’ve known the Tasty Brands team for years, working with them on different projects and later through co-investments in tech startups addressing the HORECA industry. The TB team is driven by passion, vision, and integrity--and this shines through in the results they have achieved. This fund is going to make a big impact on the HORECA industry in Romania, and beyond."

Bogdan ColceriuPartner, Risky Business Ventures

“Having provided consulting and management services to companies wishing to expand their business across borders for more than 10 years, I can surely say that when presented with a business opportunity, I can immediately evaluate its potential. That’s why when one of my employees showed me Salad Box and it’s phenomenal growth – I knew I have to fly to Romania and talk with these guys. From that first talk, we began a strategic partnership growing Salad Box in the UK and Scandinavia.”

Kent MosbechDirector, Green UK Scandi Ltd

"The Tasty Brands team was an enormous support in helping us scale the Narcoffee concept. With their support on operational best practices, marketing,branding, product, customer service training, and more we were able to go international in under a year!"

Ionut TemianCEO Narcoffee

"After visiting Cluj and meeting the Salad Box team, and tasting the food, I was confident this business model and product would thrive in Ireland. Becoming Master Franchiser for Ireland is a great responsibility, but the Salad Box team have been great and reliable partners helping us overcome the challenges. The future for the Salad Box brand in Ireland looks very strong with consistent openings expected with both current and new franchisee partners."
