Episode: 58


Rebecca McGuinness and Patrick O’Shea from restaurant brand Temple of Seitan

In this episode, we talk Seiten – Yes Seitan, not Satan, with the inspirational Rebecca McGuinness and Patrick O’Shea from Temple of Seitan, the vegan restaurant brand which has taken London by storm.

Setting the standard for incredible vegan fast food in London, the couple, who moved to London from Melbourne, Australia, started off selling their vegan fried ‘chicken’ from a market stall.

Now they are a globally recognised, multi-site brand with multiple takeaway restaurants around London. In conversation with presenter Helen Wilson, Patrick and Rebecca share their amazing vegan business success story.
