This is a sustainable fast-food company. They are building a sustainable and healthier version at a triple A location of the yellow M and that other king. The startup believes that the essence of fast food contains the building blocks for a successful formula that gets the masses to switch to plant-based and healthier consumption.
So they are simply realizing the next fast-food chain.
The company does this by copying what already works well and improving what needs to be improved. They have great exclusive recipes, a great brand, but most of all it is the people behind (the company) that make the difference. The startup will open its first restaurant, which they call Bases, in mid 2023. After that, the company wants to increase the number of bases tenfold within five years, growing to a total of 100 locations in 10 years’ time.
The goal is to bring plant-based from niche to mainstream in the best possible way: quick, affordable and consistent.
The firm sells directly to customers through their own physical restaurants. First location is a triple A location in the city center of Rotterdam (opening mid 2023).
The company has a very healthy margin (i.e., 67% in the first year and growing afterwards) on products and is turning green numbers right from the opening of the first restaurant. All numbers including P&L, cash flow etc. are available upon request.
