Cooley advised Momofuku Goods, a brand of restaurant-grade pantry staples, on its $17.5 million Series A financing led by Siddhi Capital. The new funding will allow Momofuku to expand product offerings and support its growing operations, which includes scaling its team and marketing efforts.
“We spent a decade testing and developing our pantry essentials, ensuring that they were up to the standards we uphold in our restaurants,” David Chang, celebrity chef and founder of Momofuku restaurant group, said in a press statement. “With this investment, I’m looking forward to bringing even more flavor to home cooks’ kitchens.” Founded by the team behind Momofuku restaurants, Momofuku Goods offers a range of products, including chili crunch oil, air-dried noodles, soy sauce, rice vinegar and seasoned salts that are sold online and in more than 2,000 retail stores.
Winston Gu and Yvan-Claude Pierre led the Cooley team, which also included Len Jacoby, JP Oleksiuk, Jonathan Rivinus, Robert Eisenbach, Joyce Kim, Chris Chynoweth, Andrew Mettry, Bomin Kim and Noah Belsky.
