In 2017, Mobeus Equity Partners invested £2.5m of growth capital into Tapas Revolution, a UK restaurant chain offering Spanish tapas cuisine that was founded by celebrity chef Omar Allibhoy. Following the launch of two new restaurants, Mobeus invested a further £2 million in 2018.

THE BUSINESS

The first Tapas Revolution restaurant opened in 2010 in Shepherd's Bush, London, and on the back of this success, a second site was launched less than a year later in Bluewater. The chain now comprises six restaurants nationwide.

THE DEAL

Mobeus invested £2.5 million in 2017 and followed its money with a further £2 million of growth capital in March 2018.

THE PLAN

Tapas has successfully opened new restaurants in Newcastle and Bath since the original investment. With this new funding, the team will launch in more new locations, starting in Windsor this autumn.

THE PEOPLE

Amit Hindocha led both the original investment and this follow-on round for Mobeus. He sits on the board.
