Bonnie Gull hits crowdfunding target
Seafood restaurant group Bonnie Gull has hit its £200,000 crowdfunding target to further expand across the UK.

The company will use the funding to help launch the first permanent site of its 'quality chippy' brand Salt ‘n’ Sauce at the Westgate Oxford development.

It is also planning to improve its two Bonnie Gull restaurants in London's Fitzrovia and Soho and look at opening further sites in and outside the capital.

The team say they want Salt ‘n’ Sauce to become one of the UK’s leading fish and chip brands, filling a ‘void in the fast food industry for a sexier, high quality chippy’ with a menu including beer battered North sea haddock and triple cooked beef dripping chunky chips.

Bonnie Gull has now gone in to overfunding with five days of the crowdfunding campaign remaining.

“The further into overfunding we get the better as it may enable us to open another BG venture sooner than we anticipated," the Bonnie Gull team wrote on their crowdfunding page last week.

"There are some interesting opportunities that have come our way since we announced our fundraising and what we can do depends on how much we raise.”

The seafood group started out as a London pop-up before opening its first permanent Fitzrovia restaurant in 2012, followed by a site in Soho in 2016.

It also launched a ‘seaside cafe’ site in Exmouth Market in 2014, but it closed last year.
