VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 10, 2021 /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, is pleased to announce that it has been engaged by the New Taipei Kings, a men’s professional basketball team (“New Taipei Kings” or the “Team“) in New Taipei City, Taiwan, to create and launch the “King’s Menu” virtual food brand for its customers. The King’s Menu will enable fans of the New Taipei Kings to place food orders for consumption while watching a game in person at the Team’s stadium or by delivery from the comfort of their own homes. The Company will also be designing special food items with select Team players.
JustKitchen has also agreed to sponsor the New Taipei Kings for the current season, which will include its logo being featured on the Team’s electronic scoreboard during games and on social media, among other placements. The New Taipei Kings were founded by its Chairman, Walter Wang, and joined the P. LEAGUE+ (“PLG“) professional basketball league in 2021. The Team is the first professional basketball franchise in New Taipei City, which is the most populated city in Taiwan with approximately four million residents. Average game attendance for the 2020-2021 season across the PLG was 82.4% and the PLG has significant media exposure with a total reach, including both traditional and new media, of over 226 million people.
“Entering the world of sports is both an exciting business opportunity for the Company and a fun new application of JustKitchen’s technology and services. Working with the New Taipei Kings to develop the King’s Menu in order to serve their fans in the stadium and at home opens up a new segment of the market for us,” said Jason Chen, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. “JustKitchen is also honoured to sponsor the New Taipei Kings as a way to build an even stronger relationship with the Team and its players. I view this new relationship as the start of a potentially significant line of business via a new target market for our Company,” added Mr. Chen.
JustKitchen is primarily an operator of ghost kitchens specializing in the development and marketing of proprietary and franchised delivery-only food brands for customers.
