Porky’s BBQ to launch Crowdcube campaign

Porky’s BBQ, a London-based BBQ restaurant chain with five sites across the capital, is seeking GBP650,000 in investment via Crowdcube for its next phase of growth. The campaign will last 30 days and launches on 18 May. 

Porky’s BBQ is a family-run, Memphis-style restaurant with sites in Camden, Shoreditch, Bankside, Crouch End and a recently opened site in Chelsea. With around GBP100,000 turnover a week in London, the brand wishes to use this crowd sourced investment to open two more sites this year alone. 

This will be the business’s first effort to gain outside investment after self-funding an impressive first three years of growth. The target raise will be GBP650,000 in exchange for 8.2 per cent of the business, and it will launch on 18 May via Crowdcube – the platform that has helped Brewdog fund its well-publicised Equity for Punks scheme.

The husband and wife team behind Porky’s developed the concept after they visited Memphis on an American roadtrip.
