The GG Hospitality group spearheaded the Hotel Football brand alongside Gary Neville. Giggs is set to entertain guests at the charity event, with his sporting tales in a Q&A session.
Café Football opened its first site in Westfield Stratford in 2013, with the second opened at Manchester United. A third is set to open at the National Football Museum, also in Manchester. Michelin-starred chef Michael O’Hare was appointed creative director at the group at the beginning of the year.
GG Hospitality also plans to extended its hotel brand and restaurant chain Café Football into Europe and Asia. The pair co-own the business with Singaporean-based Rowsley Limited.
The group has said it believes there is scope for 5,000 new rooms around the globe and it will open its first overseas restaurant in Singapore in 2017.
The Hospitality Action event is just one of several annual star-studded evenings helping to raise money for the industry cause.
Giggs said: “I am delighted to have been asked to be part of Hospitality Action’s second Sporting Legends Lunch at Hotel Football. The work that is done is vital in helping individuals through difficult and often debilitating circumstances and it is important to know people are not on their own and there is support out there”.
Hospitality Action chief executive, Penny Moore, said: “We look forward to hosting an unforgettable afternoon of entertainment in Manchester. Funds raised will allow us to directly assist those who work, or have worked, within the UK hospitality sector and find themselves in crisis.
“People can be affected by anything from life altering illnesses to poverty and domestic violence, preventing them from working and supporting themselves. Events like this help deliver real positive changes to those in need.”
Similarly, Michelin-starred chefs Raymond Blanc, Bruno Loubet and Ashley Palmer-Watts are to collaborate for the annual Hospitality Action fundraising dinner at Brasserie Joel, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on 5 December.
