|Richard & Barbara Posner, British expatriates originally from London, share a wealth of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Throughout the 1980's they created and operated one of the most successful & popular restaurants in London's Mayfair.
Relocating to Sarasota, Florida in 1990, they missed familiar flavors and harbored the vision of eventually introducing the pleasures of top quality British Pies - ancient & gastro-pub modern - to the American market.
On a return trip to the United Kingdom in 2002, Richard and Barbara were delighted to find that, at last, Pasties, Pork Pies and Sausage Rolls... long considered just nostalgic, low key fare... had been reborn as alternative "Fast Food", and long lines of demand were everywhere.
It galvanized a unique concept... More, Better, Tastier, Flakier!
With a great variety of options, and with a more creative, skillful and imaginative approach, 4 & 20 expanded a simple menu into a selection of outstanding variety, to suit every varied and diverse taste.
The first 4 & 20 Pasty Company Emporium.
Our new-wave Pasty, Pie & Sausage Roll Bakery opened on Swift Road, Sarasota, Florida in 2003 and became an instant success with the local British and expatriate communities.
We are delighted that the products also caught on fast with American consumers.
"Each week hundreds of customers visit us for a take-out hot lunch, dinner or picnic.
We also have patrons who regularly make 150 mile, and more, round trips to our atmospheric store, which makes us very proud! They stock up on our selection of frozen Pasties & Pies, succulent Pork Sausages, Back Bacon and other traditional items, all sourced from dedicated American artisan butchers, which makes their trip really worthwhile."
