Aviary Hospitality partners with Daizun Investments

Aviary Hospitality, owners of the award-winning Chicken & Blues and Flamingo Café Bar brands across Bournemouth and Poole, have announced a strategic partnership with Daizun Investments as they look to expand their estate in 2023, with further food and beverage concepts in development.

Daizun Investments, founded as a family office, was established to deploy its own capital to offer flexible funding options to British SMEs, as well as supporting innovative start-ups. With a combined 50+ years’ experience in the property and investment banking sectors, Daizun is operated with an entrepreneurial mindset, having built a variety of successful businesses themselves. 

David Rogers, co-founder Daizun Investments: ‘We’re a boutique investment company with an entrepreneurial background and so we relish working with founders to help finance their growth and brands. We were quick to see the high-impact model Steve and Joshua have implemented across both Chicken & Blues and Flamingo and confident in coming on board to help fund their expansion. We very much look forward to seeing the brands continue to thrive in what are undoubtedly difficult times in the sector at present.’

Steve Crawford, co-founder Aviary Hospitality: ‘Having shown resilience throughout the pandemic, we remain ambitious and buoyant despite the headwinds of the current macroeconomic climate. By partnering with Daizun Investments, we unlock a series of opportunities for expansion, starting with our recently announced acquisition of James and White Group. We’re thrilled that Daizun’s team shares our vision for continuing to grow Aviary Hospitality into an exciting company that attracts exceptional talent, and provides guests with unique, shareable, and memorable experiences’.
