Tait Walker Assists The Naked Deli in Securing Investment of £2.5 Million

Our North East member firm, Tait Walker have assisted The Naked Deli Limited with a £2.5 million growth capital investment.

Launched in 2014, The Naked Deli operates a number of sites in Newcastle, offering a health-conscious and clean-eating dining experience, with a tasty range of gluten and dairy-free, vegan and paleo dishes. The first site opened in Heaton and after a strong social media campaign, reached full capacity in the first week.

The Company will use the investment to bolster systems and infrastructure, and to continue the rollout of additional sites around the UK. They also managed to boost their team with the appointment of John Upton as Chairman, who joined from LEON where he was Managing Director and, prior to LEON, a member of the senior team at McDonald’s UK. Upton adds significant sector and roll-out expertise and experience.

Chris McCourt, Associate Partner, Tait Walker Corporate Finance, commented: “It is a pleasure to have been able to help the founders of The Naked Deli raise the finance that will enable them to fulfil their ambition to scale up the business. With the support of Foresight and experience of John Upton, I have no doubt The Naked Deli will go from strength to strength, and we look forward to continuing to work with the team.”
