Dragon's Den chairs

hungryhouse in the Dragons’ Den

In 2007, one year after the official launch of hungryhouse.co.uk, founders Shane Lake and Tony Charles got their big break by appearing on Dragons’ Den. Their impressive presentation piqued the interest of the Dragons, securing the future of hungryhouse – though it wasn’t as simple as a handshake. Watch the original presentation and read more about the coverage here:

    oh well, how wrong the dragons were… especially the first two. arrogant twats, especially that lady. that’s exactly how take-away works, she has no idea. probably only eats at expensive french crap restaurants.

    I bet the investors who said “i’m out” now hugely regret doing so!

    I hate ‘Just Eat’ with a passion and since they took over Meal 2 Go, things have became so limited. I’m pleased to see Hungary House growing, it really does grind me because I like using sites to order – looking through menu’s is messy and why would a normal person keep more than their few favourites?

    Considering Just Eat swallows up other companies like ‘Fill my Belly’. I hope you guys stick to your guns and continue to grow!

    This is far more a community site, with much of the same offerings – If I was you guys, I’d offer rewards like ‘Meal 2 Go’ did and treat your customers with respect. So far, I haven’t had to complain and there’s no annoying bugs like the previous site I mentioned. Also, my bank account looks healthier – considering I’m no longer occasionally being charged 3 times, which was unknown to me at the time of ordering.
