The Coconut Tree is inviting its fans to buy shares in the restaurant group, to help fund its ambitious expansion plans.

Investors in Gloucestershire are being offered a unique opportunity to buy shares in the largest Sri Lankan restaurant group outside of Sri Lanka, The Coconut Tree

With the appetite for Sri Lankan food growing in popularity, the multi-award-winning restaurant group is launching a campaign to raise £1 million, so it can share its unique brand of authentic Sri Lankan food, Cocotails and 'island vibes' with more and more people across the UK. 

Since it was founded in Cheltenham in 2016, The Coconut Tree has expanded across the country and now has nine restaurants in locations including Bristol, Birmingham and Bath — with plans to open two new venues in London as part of its new campaign. 

Its pitch deck promises 'potential for a great return on investment' due to The Coconut Tree's loyal customer base and proven business model, with the group targeting a valuation of £100 million and aiming to grow annual revenue from £6.7 million to £70 million by 2028. 

Shareholders can invest from as little as £10 — and there are a host of perks for investors putting in £100 or more, including discounts off the bill, free Cocotails, free meals, merchandise and invitations to new restaurant openings, too. 

Anyone interested in investing in The Coconut Tree is encouraged to contact Mithra Fernando via The Coconut Tree's website.
