Hummus Bros: the pop-ups taking over the capital

Hummus Bros began life in 2005 when two college friends decided they were tired of eating sandwiches and salads, but still wanted something healthy to eat.

Since then, they’ve opened up four branches of their chain and operate more than 50 pop-ups each month in corporate canteens. 

Christian explained what’s next for the company, including their plans to launch a brand of supermarket hummus that doesn’t contain preservatives. 

After a successful crowdfunding campaign, which saw them raise almost £25,000 more than their initial £150,000 aim, Hummus Bros launched a new app to ensure customers wouldn’t have to wait for their food.

They’d been battling queues owing to the recent increasing popularity of hummus and Mediterranean food. 

Christian also explained why he used crowdfunding over more traditional methods of raising money.
