JustKitchen, a ghost kitchen provider headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, is plotting an international expansion with ambitions to open locations in the U.S. this year, specifically targeting the West Coast, according to a press release. The company, which is also in the process of opening a location in Hong Kong, plans to enter Singapore and the Philippines in 2021. JustKitchen could potentially expand into Canada and further into Asia-Pacific in 2022.
The company’s American expansion will begin with Seattle and several California cities where it already has partners and kitchen infrastructure, according to TechCrunch.
JustKitchen’s U.S. entrance comes as several American restaurant brands, such as Saladworks, Nathan’s Famous and Applebee’s, look to grow via ghost kitchens and are deepening their investments in these models.
