Brighton duo behind UK’s first frozen yoghurt shop launch crowdfunding campaign

Founders of frozen yogurt retailer Lick Yogurt, Ky Wright and Owain Williams, have launched a crowdfunding campaign giving fans of their brand he chance to become ‘shareholders’ in the growing business.

The duo started making and selling frozen yogurt together at school, and now run an award winning, nationally stocked frozen yogurt brand.

In 2006, Ky and Owain moved from Tenby to Brighton to open up the UK’s first frozen yogurt store (pictured below), which they closed in 2013 to focus on retail and export.

The retailer’s ‘Lick tubs’ are now available in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado, Yo! Sushi, Budgens and Wholefoods among many other places all over the UK.

Lick within the fastest growing category in a market worth over £1.1bn and plan to begin exporting their frozen yogurt this year. So far, the pair have raised almost £80k of their £200k target.

In a statement crowdfunding platform CrowdCube, the duo said: “We want as many people from Brighton as possible to be share holders. Since the shop opened, Brighton’s unique ‘vibe’ has been a big influence in everything we’ve done and achieved, and so the more connected we are to the place and people, the better we feel.”
