Liverpool’, health-focused Chinese restaurant Green Kitchen has launched a £200,000 fund-raise on crowdfunding platform Crowdcube to fund expansion plans. The company, founded by Liang Zhang and Stewart Parker, is offering 11.61% equity in return for the investment.
Green Kitchen began as a food delivery service in 2015 before opening its first restaurant last year near Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium. It plans to open more sites in Liverpool later this year before launching other cities.
The prospectus states: “Green Kitchen aims to develop a UK healthy Chinese fast food chain by promoting our healthy eating concept. Our central kitchen-based business model enables us to standardise the food and get better quality control with calorie and nutrition information available for our food. We can expand quickly because no kitchen needs to be built while opening a site, thus cost is low. Our central kitchen is 1,400 square feet, which we predict is capable of supplying food for up to eight Green Kitchen restaurants in Liverpool. We want to build another three to five sites including a flagship store in Liverpool before we start expanding to cities such as Manchester and Birmingham. We also envisage motorway service station sites and drive-thrus in the future.”
