Rebel foods

Cloud kitchen brand Rebel Foods has raised Rs 110 crore ($13.2 million) in debt from Alteria and InnoVen Capital. This is the fifth debt funding for the parent company of EatSure (previously Faasos) after its last equity round in 2021.

The board at Rebel Foods has passed a special resolution to issue 11,000 Series G1 non-convertible debentures at an issue price of Rs 1,00,000 per debenture to raise Rs 110 crore, regulatory filings with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) show.

Orbis Trusteeship (through Alteria) has invested Rs 65 crore while Vistra ITCL (via InnoVen Capital) pumped in Rs 45 crore during the debt round. The tenure of  paying Series G1 debt is up to May 1, 2027.

According to filings, each debenture issued in the debt round shall be entitled to the interest of 13.90% per annum. The interest shall be payable on a monthly basis.

In April last year, it raised Rs 75 crore ($9 million) in debt from Catalyst Trusteeship (Northern Arc) and Stride Ventures. In 2022, the Mumbai-based firm received Rs 230 crore across three debt fundings.

Rebel Foods operates food brands such as Faasos, Behrouz Biryani, Oven Story Pizza, Mandarin Oak, The Good Bowl, and Slay Coffee with more than 450 kitchens in over 70 cities. It has a portfolio of over 45 brands across multiple countries—India, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia and the UK.

The company is planning to take Oven Story Pizza offline and will open 250-300 outlets over the next two-three years.

The Jaydeep Barman-led company entered the unicorn club after a $175 million Series F round led by Qatar Investment Authority in October 2021.  The Peak XV-backed company raised its last equity round of $14.5 million in November 2021.

Rebel Foods’ operating revenue surged to Rs 1,258 crore in FY23 from Rs 856 crore in FY22. According to startup data intelligence platform TheKredible, its losses jumped to Rs 656 crore in FY23 from Rs 564 crore in the previous year.

As per media report, Rebel Foods is planning for an initial public offering (IPO) by 2025, making it the first firm from cloud kitchen space to list on the India stock exchange.
