Scottish software-as-a-service start-up Spoonfed has won a second round of funding worth £585,000 from angel investment syndicate Equity Gap, private US and Channel Islands investors and the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise, to accelerate international growth and take the company into profit.
Launched in 2013, Spoonfed has provided its drop off catering software to customers throughout the UK including high-street chains, independent sandwich retailers and contract catering businesses and has also won contracts in USA, Canada and Australia.
The technology has enabled clients to unlock new markets with automated business processing of office catering orders.
The investment will be used to drive additional sales of the technology in the UK and internationally, create new jobs and establish a foothold in the Far East and mainland Europe.
Spoonfed was founded by Willie Biggart and Murray McNicol who owned and operated a catering business delivering meeting room food to offices. They developed the software to automate processes to save time, reduce mistakes and increase margins.
