THE BIGGEST THANK YOU FROM US!
It’s been an unbelievable few weeks and a very busy few months, and we’re still clinging on to summer with a few more special events coming up over the next month or so! We’ve spent the last twelve months learning, meeting, testing, refining, laughing, crying and pretty much everything in between. The Vurger Co was officially “born” on 11th July 2016 and almost a year to the day exactly, on 6th July 2017, we closed our very first crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube.com, 77 hours after it launched.
We set out to raise £180k, but after reaching that in less than two days, and with the campaign proving so popular with so many wonderful people, we decided to allow the campaign to overfund to £300k. This money will enable us to push The Vurger Co from pop up to permanent, and get the doors open to our very first restaurant. The additional funding will also give us a great springboard and hopefully see the number of restaurants grow in the coming years.
When we began ........
When we started a year ago, we had absolutely no idea what was going to happen. We had a mountain of knowledge and experience to climb, we had so many reasons (and people!) to think we were absolutely crazy, but one thing was absolutely crystal clear for us.
Plant-based food is here to stay and it’s going to change the future of the way we eat, all over the world.
The opportunity to create fun, natural, delicious and accessible plant-based food is unlimited and we felt a burning desire to try and bring our dreams to life. It’s certainly not easy but it’s the most rewarding and fulfilling work we have ever done in our whole careers and it’s made possible by the support, hard work and encouragement of our team, our customers, our suppliers and now our incredible investors!
Really, we cannot thank you all enough. Because of you, we are already working on finding and opening The Vurger Co, in its own permanent home finally, and we couldn’t possibly be more excited to share it with you soon.

We promised as part of our campaign that everybody who invested would have their name on our wall .... so we have entered each name into a name cloud to generate the image of our logo.
The size of each name is automatically generated and bears no judgement on how much investment has been made.
We view each investor equally, and see each and every one of you as an essential part of our journey to take The Vurger Co to the next level!
