About the Opportunity

STACKED, originated in Sydney Australia. The brand was founded by partners, and long-standing friends Steven Khawaga and Danny Assabgy. 

The vision was spurred by a notable lack of Corner sandwich shops, that served real food made from real and locally sourced ingredients. Very few had taken the concept on at mass, and even fewer had surrounded their concept around serving real, fresh and locally sourced products. 

Operating with a vision that centres itself around real food and ingredients, the brand decided to keep it real and focus on the food. By sourcing its ingredients locally, the brand found its major point of difference. 

Combining founders Danny and Steven's various backgrounds in hospitality, business and equity STACKED opened its door in December 2020, and unlike many businesses during the global pandemic, remained open.

The remainder of the brand's 6 stores were opened shortly after in 2021.

Since then, STACKED has combined its deep care for ethically sourcing food locally to successfully bring real food to its customers, with extensive knowledge of where its produce comes from.

The brand now looks to expand further throughout Australia
