CODE Hospitality founder Adam Hyman has invested in fried chicken sandwich venture Butchies, which opens its first permanent site later this month.
Butchies’ Hatch launches in Camden Market on September 21 after building up a cult following over two years as a street food stall at Broadway Market.
Founded by husband and wife team Garrett and Emer FitzGerald, the concept was voted one of London’s top three street food outfits by Time Out in 2015, and has catered for large private events for Nike, Heineken and Southern Comfort.
Hyman’s CODE Hospitality will provide investment and advice to the duo on their future fundraising and brand development. It is thought the company is working on more investment opportunities in the sector.
The American South-style buttermilk fried chicken is slow-reared, high welfare free-range and sourced exclusively from Fosse Meadows Farm in Leicestershire.
Butchies claims to be the first UK street food trader to use a pressure fryer imported from the US, which reportedly makes for a juicier more flavoursome fried bird.
The menu will offer four free-range chicken sandwiches, served in soft butter-toasted buns and named after some of Garrett’s favourite fictional pop culture characters.
There will also be a vegetarians options as well as a selection of sides including fries and wings.
Butchies’ Hatch will be at the entrance of the recently regenerated Camden Stables Market.
