From our ‘world’s first pop up Pestaurant’ at One New Change in London in August 2013, we’ve literally been popping up all over the UK, from Edinburgh and Liverpool, to Manchester and the London Science Museum.
We have been intriguing visitors with bug treats and daring them to take our ‘Pestaurant Challenge’. This involves trying three different flavours or types of bugs to win an ‘I Survived the Rentokil Pestaurant Challenge’ badge along with a prized bug lollipop!
Not only are we attracting fascinated visitors to our #Pestaurant, it is now winning awards too. Having been short listed in three categories at the annual Golden Hedgehog Awards, we went on to win the gong for ‘Event of the Year 2013’. This has been followed by an In2 SABRE (formerly Silver Sabre) award for ‘Best Live Event 2013’, which is run by The Holmes Group and recognises insight and innovation. We are looking forward to collecting our second award during the Holmes Reports’ Summit, at Kings Place, London in May.
If these awards are any indication, it seems the British public has a curiosity for pests and an appetite for edible insects. So expect to see our #Pestaurant and mini-bug buffets popping up throughout 2014.
