Feast It, the end-to-end catering booking platform, has secured £680,000 investment.
Feast It aims to use this increased investment for national expansion and to broaden its supply base beyond food and drink.
In the past year, Feast It has grown 400% and in that time has secured a total of £1million investment.
Founded by childhood best friends Digby Vollrath and Hugo Campbell, Feast It was originally built on a simple idea to bring catering in to the 21st century.
Digby Vollrath, co-founder of Feast It says: “The UK events industry was worth over £42.3bn in 2017, with catering alone valued over £1.5bn. Match this with an ever-increasing appetite for exciting and quality food at any event, it’s not surprising we’ve seen an explosion in consumer demand for the very best suppliers.
“There are over 7,000 companies offering catering in the UK and with so much choice and noise in the industry, there is a clear need for a platform to make people’s lives easier.
“Feast It hand picks the best possible suppliers, big or small, with the simple aim of taking the hassle out of organising events. We’ve done everything from a 20 person dinner party to a 40,000 person festival so far!”
Co-founder Hugo Campbell adds: “From my perspective, the most satisfying part of Feast It has been the feedback we’ve received from event organisers, from those organising their 100th corporate event to first time brides organising small weddings, saying that we’ve allowed them to relax in the build up to the event.
“Event organising can be hugely stressful, so if we’re helping people on that front, while bringing great food at the same time, job done!”
