Tossed

Healthy eating chain Tossed opened what it claims are the UK’s first cash-free food outlets earlier this year.

Founder Vincent McKevitt, who calls himself the “top tosser”, started the business at a site in Paddington in 2005. Following a trial in March, he plans to roll-out the cashless model to all 26 stores.

Funding came via Santander in 2013, with the bank investing £1.5m.

Customers can order online and pick up their food at express collection points in-store, or browse for what they want and then pay via self-service touchscreens or the mobile app. McKevitt believes the model will help the business speed up production and ultimately become more efficient.
