My Million Pound Menu champs Tiger Bites have gone and landed a huge gig with takeaway giant Deliveroo after appearing on the BBC series.
The ‘Asian-fusion’ restaurant famous for the signature bao was backed by Deliveroo founder Will Shu on the programme, who has now snapped up the small startup company.
‘I’m really pleased to give [Tiger Bites] the space to grow their business and bring great food to more people, helping them on their journey to opening a bricks and mortar restaurant,’ Shu enthused.
Scott de Lima, co-founder of Tiger Bites with Lacey Miles, said: “It can be tough taking the next step in this industry, especially with the huge up-front costs of fitting and opening a restaurant, but delivery means more people can try our baos letting the food speak for itself.’
And viewers were chuffed:
My Million Pound Menu is fronted by First Dates hero Fred Siriex and follows competing restaurants sizzling it out for investment from some of the most influential names in the food industry, and has so far proven to be a winning platform.
