Ready Burger, a plant-based fast food company, has exceeded its £1.5m crowdfunding target within hours of launching the campaign.
The group has now raised over £1.75m from almost 350 investors, with 29 days still left to go on its Crowdcube campaign.
Providing burgers described as “fast food that’s better for your health, better for the planet and better for your wallet”, Ready Burger currently trades out of a single restaurant in Crouch End.
However, the group will launch an additional London site at Finchley Road later on in Summer 2021.
Ready Burger, which had a pre-money valuation of £6.9m and a share price of £4.80, was co-founded by Max Miller and Adam Clark.
While Miller founded Make Space and acted as a director at Make No Bones, Clark has served as the chef of boxer Anthony Joshua.
With a focus on sustainability, the group’s plant based burgers emit 92% less greenhouse gas emissions than a beef burger, use 70% less water, and require 93% land.
