Crowdfunding campaign launched to open a sushi truck in Gloucestershire and it sounds amazing

Forget burgers and pizza as a Gloucestershire restaurant is set to bring something fresh to the festival scene. Japanese restaurant Soushi, located in Castle Street in Cirencester, has launched a Kickstarter campaign[1] for ‘a custom-made commercial kitchen on wheels.’ The truck would deliver ‘fresh sushi around the county’ including festivals, weddings and even dinner parties.

They have currently raised GBP13,960 of their GBP40,000 goal with 10 days left of fundraising.

The campaign says: “For the last nine years we’ve loved serving authentic popular Japanese food at our restaurant in Cirencester.

“There really is no better feeling than seeing our food put a smile on people’s faces.

“Our loyal customers mean so much to us and we’ve been blown away by how far people come just to eat our food. “So when we found out that we couldn’t continue our restaurant at our current premises, we thought, rather than make you come to us, we owed it to you to hit the road and come to you!

“Imagine being three days into a festival and stumbling across our truck where our lovely chef makes you a fresh healthy sushi roll right in front of you.” With new and innovative options arriving at festivals in recent years, Soushi want to be part of the ‘revolution.’

What the truck could look like

Offerings at the food truck would include pan-fried gyoza, yakitori skewers, ramen, teriyaki and katsu burgers.

The GBP40,000 target covers the costs for an ‘extensive extraction system, gas supply, 6-burner hob and oven, refrigeration, freezers, deep fryers, a griddle, storage, steriliser and washup area with water.’

Incentives for those backing the campaign include a DIY Sushi Making Kit for those who pledge GBP25 or more to a party for 100 people with the new food truck if you give over GBP5,000. The truck also has the backing of Andrew Kojima – former MasterChef finalist and owner of Japanese restaurant Koj in Regent Street, Cheltenham. He tweeted: “Sushi and Japanese food truck for the Cotswolds?

Hell yeah! I have backed you! Good luck Soushi.”
