Bubble& raising £100,000 investment to launch first restaurant site in Southsea

Launching off the back of sell-out markets, festivals and private events, Bubble& plans to open a 45-seater casual dining restaurant in Southsea, Portmsouth.

A local favourite on the street food scene, Bubble& has reinvented the British classic, bubble and squeak, and they are on a mission to create an iconic restaurant brand.

Bubble& was founded in August 2013 by Rupert Smith and Marita Lietz. Rupert has been a chef for over 25 years and Marita’s background is in business development, sales & PR.

Co-founders Rupert and Marita are thrilled to be raising investment for their first site on Crowdcube, the world’s leading equity crowdfunding investment platform.

Inspired by his desire to put this classic back on the menu with a gourmet tweak, Rupert is excited about his Crowdcube campaign.

“Crowdfunding gives people who love our food and brand an opportunity to become shareholders in our company. We’re offering some amazing rewards, too.”

Bubble& is seeking £100,000 investment to fit out the restaurant and kitchen, undertake refurbishment, pay admin fees and give them some working capital to get started.

Marita, with 15 years’ experience in business development, sales & PR, is eager to drive the brand forward.

“People ask us on a daily basis: ‘Where is your restaurant?’ It’s time to take that next big step.”

You can now view Bubble&’s Exclusive Access pitch on Crowdcube before it goes live to the public on Monday 20th March. You can invest from £10.
