Cloud kitchen company Fork N Knife has raised $800,000 in its seed funding round to expand its business in European and African markets by the end of this year, according to a report by Zawya.

The capital was raised from a group of angel investors and institutions outside the Middle East.

The news agency quoted Fork N Knife co-founder and CEO Yasser Nasr-Aldinas saying: “Having been in the cloud kitchen industry for eight years, I saw the need for a new model that solves the real challenges faced by restaurant owners.

“We decided to challenge the conventions by offering our CAAS model, which completely removes the fixed costs that eat up the profits of restaurant owners.

“We also leverage technology to enhance the food production process and support our partners to excel in the growing food market.”

The company will use the proceeds to support its mission of advancing the food tech sector through its “Cooking As A Service” (CAAS) model.

Fork N Knife claims that its CAAS model allows restaurant and food concept developers to scale their businesses without any upfront investment.

“We have also started negotiations for our Series A funding round, which shows the strong interest and trust in our innovative approach to cloud kitchens.”
