Erpingham House, renowned for its 'Insta-friendly' interiors created for taking selfies, has announced it is crowdfunding to open in 'the vegan capital of the UK.'
Situated in a beautiful period building on Tombland, and renowned for its pink interiors loved by people posting on social media like Facebook and Instagram, the restaurant is expanding into Brighton with a £250,000 crowdfunding initiative to raise 15% of the overall cost. Money raised will also go towards improvements to the Norwich venue.
Brighton is renowned for its vegan restaurants, with more such places to dine per 100,000 people than in any other city in the UK.
Loui Blake, MD of Erpingham House, said: "Five years ago, I was working in the city in a fast-paced marketing role, always on the go, when I suffered what many people in a similar situation do - burn out. It was then that I decided to adopt a plant-based diet, and travel the world, before bringing the foods and drinks I fell in love with to my home city.
"Since opening in early 2018, the response has been phenomenal, which is why we feel there is an appetite to take it further and look to pastures new. While our Norwich site will always be close to my heart, we have big plans for the Erpingham House brand, and I'm excited to see what the future brings."
Erpingham House specialises in vegan food from 'Insta-friendly' lattes and smoothies, to 'build your own buddha bowls.' The crowdfunding will initially open to private investors on Thursday, August 1 before going public a month later, on September 1.
