The crowdfund campaign will launched yesterday (12 May) and will close on the 8 June.
Patricia Trijbits launched her first Where The Pancakes Are site in Flat Iron Square in 2016 and opened a second in Charlotte Street during the pandemic.
The brand specialises in buttermilk pancakes, with options including Classic American (Swaledale Butcher’s streaky bacon, blueberries and maple syrup).
“Our pancakes are so well loved by our customers, we are excited to continue our expansion across the UK to bring our pancakes to as many people as possible - I like to think of it as spreading the pancake love,” says Trijbits.
“With pancakes such a versatile and often healthy meal option, there is no reason why we shouldn’t all be enjoying them all more regularly.”
