Kricket continues to make its acclaimed dishes delivery favourites with Growth Kitchen
London-based Indian-inspired restaurant will use the partnership to optimise its delivery-only offering.
London, 30th May 2022 — Growth Kitchen, the leading food-tech startup operating smart satellite kitchen networks, today announces a partnership with the modern Indian group, Kricket. The restaurant, backed by White Rabbit Fund, has joined Growth Kitchen’s body of top food brands in its Bermondsey hub as part of its plans to focus on the quality of its delivery operations.
Leading the new-wave Indian food movement, the passionate team behind Kricket, founded by Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell in a shipping container in Pop Brixton in 2015, has always been focused on offering affordable, accessible modern Indian food in London. Having already launched delivery at its brick-and-mortar locations in Brixton and White City, as well as exploring delivery-only kitchens before the pandemic, the restaurant was able to respond quickly to address the uplift in online orders.
Growth Kitchen was able to offer the Indian group a large kitchen, with all the technology and support needed, located in an area with a hip crowd in the borough of Southwark — serving adjoining Tower Bridge, Walworth, Camberwell and Peckham. Launching the hub, Kricket was the first kitchen to open in the Bermondsey location and they are already benchmarking well against total sales across existing sites.
“When we looked at our location insights for our Bermondsey hub and could see the area was missing a strong Indian food player, we immediately thought of Kricket,” said Máté Kun, co-founder of Growth Kitchen. “Its contemporary twist on Indian takeaway is such a cool concept and when the numbers came back strong, we knew they could do really well with us.”
Rik Campbell, Co-founder of Kricket, added: “As a growing brand, it’s important that we focus on the sites that are working hardest for us and our Bermondsey kitchen with Growth Kitchen is one of our highest performing locations. We are delighted to be partnering with Growth Kitchen. The operational efficiencies in their set-up, combined with their impressive location intelligence, meant opening was quick and easy. We look forward to furthering our relationship in the future.”
