Gozney, a British manufacturer of professional wood and gas stone ovens, announced it is planning to launch an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube next month. The company reported it is seeking to raise £500,000 through the funding round in order to accelerate its expansion into key overseas territories and launch new, innovative consumer products.
Since its 2011 inception by inventor and entrepreneur Tom Gozney, Gozney claims it has become the UK market leader in premium restaurant pizza ovens and residential fire and stone ovens. The company also claims to be a trusted partner of the best in the industry, boasting an impressive client list including Franco Manca, Pizza Pilgrims, and Homeslice. Gozney explained its growth was fuelled by the 2016 launch of Roccbox, a portable fire and stone oven.
Gozney noted that in addition to supporting international expansion, the campaign funding will focus on new product development, building on the success of Roccbox and other leading oven ranges. This includes a range of premium-grade ovens with application for home and restaurant use, as well as a disruptive range of related, but unique products for outdoor dining and the B2B market. Tom Gozney, Founder and CEO at Gozney stated:
“Gozney is the true pioneer in the art of fire and stone cooking. Our vision is to bring people together to share unique cooking and dining experiences. We’ve reached an exciting juncture in this journey and are excited to deliver the next stage of growth for the business.”
“We’re confident that this crowdfunding campaign will take us one step closer to realising our ambitions by enabling the delivery of the products our consumers want. It also gives our audiences the opportunity to become an integral part of the company’s future and success. We truly believe that Gozney ovens are inspiring a food revolution and with new markets opening and products in the pipeline – the future of Gozney is looking bright.”
