Age:
31
Company: Crussh

Australian Fung was poised to return home to set up a smoothie bar before meeting Crussh's founder James Liamont 18 months ago. Liamont convinced him to stay in London and run his chain instead – and it's proved a wise decision for both parties. Under Fung's guidance, Crussh has seen off a number of competitors and opened its ninth store. With turnover up from £1.7m to £2.2m, the company is expecting to break into profit before the end of the year and plans for three new stores are in progress.

2017 update: 

Crussh now has more than 27 stores across London. Funug remained as CEO and managing director of Crussh until June 2016. He now acts as non-exec board advisor. He’s set to appear at the Food Entrepreneur Show 2017 in September.
