JustKitchen Adds Famous BistroRYU Black Curry to Brand Portfolio

Taiwan Consumers Can Now Access BistroRYU’s Black Curry Through Multiple Third-Party Delivery Services

VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 6, 2022 /CNW/ – Just Kitchen Holdings Corp. (“JustKitchen” or the “Company”) ( TSXV: JK) (OTCQB: JKHCF) (FRA: 68Z), an operator of ghost kitchens specializing in the development of delivery-only food brands, announces that BistroRYU Black Curry (“BistroRYU“) was launched to consumers in Taiwan on August 17, 2022 via the JustKitchen app as well as via its network of third party delivery service providers.

BistroRYU is a famous Japanese restaurant located in Hakata, Fukuoka. JustKitchen began working with BistroRYU in February of 2022 via a brand swap agreement with TGAL Inc. pursuant to which the Company gained access to the Japanese local hero brand.

BistroRYU is known for its black curry which includes the flavour of pork bones, chicken bones, many spices, and vegetables. Black curry gets its name because all the ingredients are melted together, creating a black-coloured curry which has become popular over the years for its colour and taste. BistroRYU has grown from one store location to approximately 70 cloud kitchens in Japan.

Since being launched by the Company, consumers in Taiwan are now able to enjoy BistroRYU black curry dishes in the comfort of their own homes or at the office through JustKitchen’s delivery partners including Ubereats and Foodpanda. To celebrate the launch of BistroRYU, the Company offered customers a 20% discount on applicable food orders.

Management Commentary

“Adding BistroRYU to our brand portfolio is a win for our customers, based on how popular it is in Japan. Black curry is a delicious and unique product. Being able to offer it to consumers in Taiwan is part of what differentiates JustKitchen from the competition,” said Jason Chen, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. “Indian inspired cuisine with a Japanese twist isn’t something that most people experience every day. It’s fun to bring a brand like BistroRYU to our home market and offer it to our loyal customers,” added. Mr. Chen.
