Burger Bear, the London-based pop-up burger concept led by Tom Reaney, has achieved its target of raising £30k through online-funding platform Kickstarter to open a permanent site in two stacked used cargo containers in Shoreditch.
Reaney, who was looking to raise the funds by 14 March, has raised just under £32k so far for the project with still nine days of fundraising to go.
He said of the new project: “Expect panoramic views of Red Market and its street art from the glass-walled overhanging upper container. The vibe? Down and dirty street food, as ever. You can still take away like the good old days. And if you care to linger – downstairs or up – it’s a high-stalled, neon-lined, diner-style Paradise! (the Burger Bear kind).
“The interior will be built largely from second-hand, reclaimed materials, by volunteers, so it’s as sustainable and cheap to do as feasibly possible.”
