Beany Green set for London expansion after smashing £800k crowdfunding target
Australian restaurant group Beany Green has hit its £800k crowdfunding target in under a week.

Over 220 investors backed the Bondi Bond, which hit its initial £300k target in under 24 hours.

Beany - which started in a transit van on the streets of London - will be using the funding to open two central London sites in 2016.

The Aussies will join eighteen new restaurants - including Jason Atherton, Bone Daddies and D&D London – at the new Victoria Nova development​ when it opens next year.

Co-founder Prue Freeman said the response had been ‘overwhelming and extremely humbling’.

“It’s so exciting to now have more than 200 enthusiastic supporters on board with us for the next stage of the journey,” said Freeman.

“We are committed to creating truly individual destinations with real personality, great coffee and art and big bold healthy food.”

Since 2012, Beany has grown from a 1985 Ford Transit on the streets with KERB to five central London locations including Broadgate Circle, Little Venice (Paddington), Marylebone, Regent’s Place and the Southbank.
