KuPP Shortlisted for Revo Gold Awards 2017

On Wednesday 6th December we attended the prestigious Revo Gold Awards where we were a finalist for Food, Beverage or Leisure Operator of the Year.

The Gold Awards celebrate the very best examples of development, investment and asset management and the category that we were shortlisted for recognises the operator that has demonstrated continuous innovation as well as an outstanding and differentiated customer proposition.

Although we didn’t win, we were proud to have been in attendance and to be shortlisted within this category alongside such established brands as D&D London, Dishoom, Franco Manca and Pret A Manger was a great honour in itself.

We had a wonderful evening in the company of our industry peers and would like to offer our warmest congratulations to Dishoom for winning the award. We hope to be involved in many more awards like this in the future.

KuPP Shortlisted for The Casual Dining Awards 2018

 KuPP Shortlisted for Casual Dining Restaurant and Pub Awards 2018

The results are in and KuPP has been shortlisted in no less than three categories at the Casual Dining Restaurant and Pub Awards 2018. KuPP were successful at the 2017 Casual Dining Restaurant and Pub Awards where they scooped the Menu Innovation Award for their Nordic inspired menu.

It has been a busy month for the brand who won Best All Day Menu at the Eat Out Awards earlier this month and have been shortlisted for Food, Beverage or Leisure Operator of the Year at the prestigious Revo Gold Awards taking place in early December.

KuPP has been shortlisted in the Best New Restaurant Site category for their Oxford venue which opened on the rooftop of John Lewis in the brand new Westgate development in early October. Partnering with John Lewis, KuPP has signed on to a standalone lease rather than taking a concession which is a first for both brands. There is natural synergy in this partnership with John Lewis having championed Scandinavian design for many years and KuPP’s Nordic inspired casual dining concept.

Making the decision to partner with KuPP is in line with the much publicised aim of John Lewis MD, Paula Nickolds, to place a renewed focus on “experience” and increasing dwell time in their stores. Improving their food and beverage options to include KuPP on their rooftop was pivotal in providing their Oxford customers with the best experience possible. Bookings for KuPP Oxford can be made via the first ever John Lewis Experience Desk, offering shoppers a welcome respite in the rooftop café, bar and restaurant.

KuPP’s Southampton venue which opened in Westquay in July this year has been shortlisted in the Best Designed Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year category which was entered into by Jones Architecture and Design. This was the first KuPP venue designed by Jones AD who have signed on for another KuPP venue planned to open in 2018.

The KuPP brand as a whole has been shortlisted for Independent Restaurant of the Year alongside stiff competition that includes Alston Bar & Beef, Arepa and Co and Framptons Café Bar and Kitchen. A relatively young brand, having launched their first venue in London’s Merchant Square in 2015, KuPP has made an impressive start when it comes to industry awards which points to a bright future ahead with a string of sites planned to open in 2018.

Steve Cox, Managing Director of KuPP, said: “It has been an extremely busy year for us and it is tremendously exciting to have been shortlisted in categories that specifically highlight the new venues that we opened in Southampton and Oxford as well as the KuPP brand as a whole. We have really enjoyed working so closely with both Jones AD and John Lewis this year and look forward to working with them again in the future.

None of this would ever be possible without the amazing people involved and I am immensely proud of the entire KuPP Team. They have done a fantastic job over the last year and the fact that KuPP has been shortlisted for these awards is a real testament to that.

I feel confident looking forward to our expansion plans for 2018 knowing that I have the support of such a great team who are as passionate about the KuPP brand as I am. As we like to say, KuPP is all that we love. Shared.”

KuPP, Nordic inspired all day casual dining concept, has scooped their second industry award of the year, taking home Best All Day Menu at the Eat Out Awards 2017 held in London on 01 November.

What the judges say..."Judges described this ambitious and successful concept as "genuine all day innovation". KuPP Offers an innovative menu that is Nordic-inspired, using techniques such as curing, pickling and smoking as a basis for many of its dishes".

“Proving that Scandinavia has taken the London food scene by storm this year, Nordic-inspired restaurant chain, KuPP. was praised for its vast food offering and ‘strong social dining element’. Offering customers ‘a place to meet and socialise, to drink, dine, graze & share’. KuPP’s three restaurants are typically Nordic, with dishes ‘perfect for grazing and sharing’ from breakfast to lunch, afternoon snacks and dinner. Lying at the heart of the brand, the concept has been praised for its menu innovation over the past 12 months, having introduced a new lunchtime menu, driven sales through its bottomless brunch and Nordic-inspired cocktail menus and promoting both special and seasonal menus.”

Share your Christmas with KuPP.


For most of us Christmas conjures up images of friends and family together around the table and against a backdrop of twinkling fairy lights and a crackling fire. Our Nordic friends call this feeling ‘hygge’ (pronounced hue-guh). A concept that we love. So in the spirit of Christmas and hygge our menus are designed to be generously laid out on the table for a festive feast where everyone can graze, share and tuck in together.

This is the way we love eating with our friends and family. It's all we love. Shared.

KuPP Christmas menus available from 24th November to 24th December 2017.
