Crussh, the London-based food to go chain, is returning to the expansion trail with new openings in Kensington and Fulham.

The plans, reported by MCA​, Restaurant​’s sister site, come after the healthy food and juice bar group was bought out of administration in January 2023​, leaving it with eight sites.

At the time, the identity of the buyers was not disclosed. However, Companies House shows tech entrepreneur Jason Collins, and Bob Finch, co-founder of venture capital firm Talis Capital, as being among the group’s new investors.

At its pre-pandemic peak Crussh had c.30 sites, but by the time it fell into administration its estate had been reduced to just 11.

A further three closed as part of the pre-pack deal.

At the time, administrators Ian Corfield and Philip Reynolds of FRP Advisory said the business had been ‘significantly impacted’ by the pandemic, but ‘immediately’ found a buyer.

“We are pleased to have secured a positive outcome for a long-established business that has sought to navigate through the range of challenges facing the hospitality and catering sector because of the pandemic,” Corfield said at the time.

“Crussh is a well-known and strong brand, and the deal ensures that trading will be unaffected with the continuation of supply to customers and the vast majority of sites and employees transferring across to the new owners.”
