Couple’s kickstarter appeal so they can expand vegan venture
A NEW vegan food hatch could be open soon in Cheltenham.
But the couple behind the planned venture say it can only happen with the public’s help.
Liam Swan and Tilly Leighton launched their vegan food business, Seitan’s Grill, in July 2017.
Focussing on plant-based products, they made food from home for all kinds of events - such as weddings and music festivals. They served vegan organic burgers with a junk food twist.
But now they are trying to raise £12,000, through a crowdfunding appeal, so they can expand their business by opening a commercial kitchen and hatch on Cheltenham’s Lansdown Industrial Estate.
It would enable the couple to continue supplying their food commercially but also to have an outlet for the public to pop in and enjoy a meal and a cup of coffee.
Liam and Tilly live in Ruspidge, near Cinderford in the Forest of Dean but previously lived in Cheltenham and would like to move back to the town.
Liam said: “I’ve got a lot of time for Cheltenham. It’s where I did my degree and it’s a developing town.”
The deadline for the crowdfunding campaign is December 8.
