Calling All Not Dogs Fans! We’ve Launched Our First Crowdfunding Campaign!

Today marks the launch of our first crowdfunding campaign to help us secure a location for the very first Not Dogs restaurant!

After spending 18 months on the road serving up the Not Dogs menu, meeting lots of new fans, gathering feedback and taking lots of #sausageselfie pictures, we are on a mission to take Not Dogs from one little travelling food truck to restaurants all over the UK – and hopefully beyond!

We are determined to open up our first restaurant in 2016, and we need your help to make it happen next year!

For those of you not familiar with Crowdfunder, it’s a popular portal for young businesses to harness the power of their community to help them bring valuable projects to life. In return we reward your investment (no matter how little) with unique and once-in-a lifetime rewards!

To view our Crowdfunder page head to this link to find out more about the campaign and to help us on our mission:


Funds raised on Crowdfunder will go towards our plans in 2016 to launch the first Not Dogs restaurant and will directly be put towards helping us to secure that must-have location for our first permanent home.

Our target is £10,000 and we have six weeks to hit it. If we don’t reach our target we won’t receive any funds (and you will receive your money back from Crowdfunder), however if we do hit the magic £10,000, ‘Stretch Funding’ will open which allows us to accept further funds for the remaining six weeks.

Anything from £10 to £1000 is accepted by Crowdfunder and to thank you for your support we have a number of exclusive rewards for your generosity including…
  • Your name forever imprinted on the 'Sausage Selfie Wall' in the first restaurant
  • 20% discount every time you visit Not Dogs
  • Exclusive branded merchandise
  • An Invitation to our first ambassador party
  • A behind-the-scenes tour and exclusive menu-tasting session with Katie & Jane
  • An invitation to the exclusive Not Dogs launch party!
  • The ultimate reward is the 'Not Dogs for Life' membership card! Your exclusive card will allow you to enjoy Not Dogs for life, on us!
  • A very exclusive reward is the naming of your very own Not Dog menu item so you can eat your namesake time and time again!
To find out how to unlock these rewards head to our Crowdfunder page here: 

Not Dogs

As it’s that wonderful time of the year, each of these rewards would be a thoughtful Christmas present for a Not Dog fan!

Our mission is to have a Not Dogs restaurant in every major city which we hope passionately will grow to become the fast-food fix of choice among not just vegetarians, but meat-eaters too, with the added benefit of being much kinder to the environment, animals, and you!

We would love for you to show your support and help us kick-start our mission so that one day you’ll have a Not Dogs fix near you. Even just sharing our Crowdfunding page with your friends and family will be so valuable to us.

Thank you for reading, and if you are already a Not Dog fan – we can’t thank you enough for all the support you have all shown us since we began.

See you for a #SausageSelfie soon :)
