Multi-award winning La Favorita Delivered is Scotland’s largest and fastest growing independent Italian pizza delivery company. It was born out of a long established Edinburgh Italian restaurant group in 2011 and has grown exponentially since then.

Having firmly cemented ourselves within the Edinburgh food scene with 4 busy stores and a loyal customer base, we’re now extending our reach westward where we were recently awarded Best Pizza at the Scottish Italian Awards. We are currently focused on opening 2 stores in Glasgow in early 2015, with plans to eventually open 50 stores throughout the UK.

Our pizzas use only the finest ingredients available, such as Scottish corn-fed free range chicken, high grade Italian salami and San Marzano DOP tomatoes.  At La Favorita Delivered, we’re very proud to offer our customers a premium product and exceptional service. We’ve taken great care to put our customer experience at the forefront of all we do and deliver only the very best product. That’s why we’ve gone to the trouble of commissioning bespoke pizza ovens, sourcing flour that is now milled exclusively to our specification, developing a special (secret) dough recipe and branding a large fleet of Fiat 500 delivery vehicles.

As part of our expansion strategy, the company is seeking to raise between £200k (for 5% of the business) and £400k (for 10% of the business).  The price per share will be fixed whatever the final total reached.

In addition to receiving shares in the company, investors in La Favorita Delivered will receive vouchers to the value of 10% of their investment which can be used when ordering from any of the company's pizzerias.
