Cou­ple’s kick­starter ap­peal so they can ex­pand ve­gan ven­ture

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -


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.
