  • £3.95m revenue to YE January 2018 and 68% group gross profit margin

  • 5x award winner (including two silver SIBA awards in 2018)

Idea

We started life in July 2012 with a dream of creating the ultimate craft beer and food experience. We wanted to create a place where people would come and be free to enjoy themselves, to drink, eat, dance, connect, and share, in an environment that was stimulating and fun. So we opened CRATE, a microbrewery and pizzeria, producing full-flavoured and accessible beers alongside hand rolled pizzas. We now have the chance to turn our already wonderful space into a true mecca for craft beer fans and a proper hub for creativity.

Your investment will allow us to

- Add a state of the art brewery for experimentation and innovation, where we can let creativity run wild.

- Open a new restaurant with dishes inspired by a new culinary thinking

- Open a new event space and launch a year-round programme of cultural events

- Transform our taproom from its current 4000sq ft to 8000sq ft of fun.

- Build 1000 sq ft of affordable workspace to act as an incubator for talent.

Having just secured a national listing in nearly 1500 Tesco stores we are also looking for funding to spread the word of what we do to the rest of the UK.

CRATE achieved £3.95m turnover in FY 2018 with an EBITDA of £88k. We recently invested in sales & marketing heads and extended the lease on our venue, the White Building, to set the foundations for future growth.
