London food tech Growth Kitchen raises £3m

London-based food technology start-up Growth Kitchen has raised £3 million.

The funding came from a group of strategic investors led by PactVC, including the co-founders of on-demand grocery delivery company Gorillas, Ronny Shibley, Jörg Kattner, and Felix Chrobog, who was also general manager for Deliveroo.

Growth Kitchen provides ‘dark kitchens’, which allow restaurants to outsource their recipes and provide delivery options in areas where they don’t have restaurants.

The start-up claims their clients include London restaurants such as Tortilla, Tai Kitchen, and The Athenian, and that they have two hubs which support 20+ restaurants.

The company is on track to open 40 new hubs within the next two years across the UK and key European markets, making it the default growth partner for high-delivery-volume restaurants across Europe.

“In a world where we take Ubers and watch Netflix, we’ve accepted cooking as the norm for too long. Building on the success of food delivery apps, we are introducing a step-change in how we eat,” said Máté Kun, co-founder of Growth Kitchen. “We transform high-order-volume restaurants into delivery powerhouses by making it very easy for them to scale through our satellite kitchen network.”

“With technology and data at their fingertips, our restaurant partners are becoming fully delivery optimised, providing a consistent, affordable experience to their customers, in a sustainable way and in an environment where employees actually want to come to work. We are thrilled to receive support from pioneers in the food delivery industry such as Ronny, creators of future-proof real estate, like Robert and those leaders disrupting the way we use technology, such as Jonathan.”

He added: “With this backing, we have been able to build a team and establish ourselves as the preferred partner of the best delivery restaurants.”
