The Scran Man

Blake Bentley, aged 22, took out a £5,000 loan for his business, The Scran Man, in March 2021.

The business, based in Great Barr in Birmingham, is dedicated to bringing customers authentic, fresh and tasty American street food such as Philly cheesesteaks, fried chicken and signature burgers. The Scran Man Grill also showcases its cooking skills and picture-perfect food to thousands of followers across their ever-growing TikTok, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Blake Bentley, Founder of The Scran Man, said

“My business journey started four years ago with the simple aim of selling unique, inventive food that I loved to make for people in my local area.


With the finance that I received back in 2021, I’ve been able to grow at a much faster rate than I ever thought possible and it has helped me take the business to a whole new level. My hobby turned side hustle has now rapidly grown into a thriving takeaway hotspot that foodies across the region have sought out and I have even more exciting plans for the future.”
