Dan Houghton

In 2007, Dan and Eric quit their jobs at Skype to pursue their shared passion for Mexican food. Fast forward 11 years and Chilango is now a thriving, award-winning brand, on a mission to add flavour to people’s lives. Over 25,000 people a week visit the restaurants to enjoy a range of tasty meals including burritos, tacos, nachos, and salads. Chilango combines the flavours and quality you traditionally associate with a sit-down restaurant with the speed, price-point, and convenience you look for in a quick service restaurant. The best of both worlds. Dan has a First Class Degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University. Dan used to work at Skype with Eric (Partaker, Co-CEO of Chilango). He now focuses on acquiring and opening new restaurants, reviewing the numbers and optimising the business via his love of data science. Dan was named among the Top 30 entrepreneurs in the UK, 35 years old and younger, by Startups Magazine, and among the Top 27 Most Disruptive Entrepreneurs in the UK, by The Telegraph.
