Idea

Founded in 2011, Grind has become one of the most exciting and fastest growing hospitably brands in London. Since its £1.3m Crowdcube bond raise in 2015, Grind has grown to nine locations, plus a coffee roastery in Shoreditch, generating run-rate revenues of £8.5m per year, and like for like sales up 31% for the first 5 months of FY18.

The Grind brand punches above its weight and our digital following surpasses many household names like Pret a Manger, Byron and Pizza Express. We have over 90,000 Instagram followers generating 2 million digital impressions per month, and our own mobile ordering app and loyalty scheme with over 22,000 members.

In the next year, our 200-strong team will make 1 million cups of coffee, smash 80,000 avocados, break 500,000 eggs and serve 75,000 of our famous Grind Espresso Martinis.

We plan to grow over the next 5 years by:

- Opening 10 new Grind owned restaurants, following the tried and tested all-day all-night experience we have refined at London Grind

- Expanding Nationally & Internationally, opening 15 café-bars in train stations and airports across UK & Europe with our exclusive franchise partner

- Launching supermarket-grade coffee tins and other consumer coffee products, bringing Grind into your home

There are shareholder & commercial loans.
