Since Dig Inn was founded in 2011 by Adam Eskin, the restaurant has expanded to 15 different locations in New York and Boston. This week, the company announced it has raised $30 million in Series D funding and plans to use the new capital to continue to expand its operations with five to six new locations this year.
In addition to the new openings, the restaurant chain says it plans to build on its culinary training center, add to its leadership team, and build on its technology platform.
The company says that prior to this Series D round, Dig Inn has raised $21.5 million to-date.
With past and current funding, Dig Inn has and will continue to be able to spread its mission of building a community through food. To further push the company philosophy of “farm to lunch,” Dig Inn announced last year that it purchased a farm in upstate New York to help train its chefs and experiment with farming techniques.
