Delivery-Only TGI Fridays Go Burgers Collection and Cali Vibe Bento Brand Also Launched by the Company
VANCOUVER, BC, July 15, 2021 /CNW/ – Just Kitchen Holdings Corp. (“JustKitchen” or the “Company”) (TSXV: JK) (OTC: JKHCF) (Frankfurt: 68Z), an operator of ghost kitchens specializing in the development of delivery-only food brands, is pleased to announce that it has recently opened its 20th ghost kitchen across the Company, located in the special municipality of Taoyuan, Taiwan (the “Taoyuan Spoke“). The Company has also launched two new delivery-only offerings including the TGI Fridays Go Burgers Collection (“TGIF Go Burgers Collection“) and the Cali Vibe proprietary bento food brand (“Cali Vibe Bento“) (collectively, the “Two New Menus“).
20th Ghost Kitchen:
The Taoyuan Spoke marks the Company’s 19th location in Taiwan and 20th in total when including the previously announced North Point location in Hong Kong that became operational in mid-June. Taoyuan is the fifth largest city in Taiwan due to its proximity to the neighbouring city of Taipei and is home to the country’s international airport. The Taoyuan Spoke is expected to serve customers working in technology and entrepreneurship, which are the major sectors of focus in Taoyuan.
Two New Menus – TGI Fridays Go Burgers Collection and Cali Vibes Bento:
The Two New Menus currently form part of JustKitchen’s total offering of approximately 25 proprietary and third-party food menus. They are currently available via the JustKitchen app and other third-party delivery platforms to customers in the vicinity of select JustKitchen ghost kitchen locations.
The delivery-only TGIF Go Burgers Collection was developed in cooperation with TGI Fridays based on the Company’s existing relationship with the global enterprise. The TGIF Go Burgers Collection adds three new TGI Fridays hamburgers to its TGIF Go offering, for the Company to strive to capture the most frequently ordered American food items on third-party delivery applications.
The Cali Vibe Bento brand was created in-house by JustKitchen and the menu features healthy bento items for people who want smaller portions of protein for their diets. The brand also offers lower price points, starting at $5.35 per item. The Cali Vibe Bento brand is intended to fill a demand gap identified by the JustKitchen team for lower-priced bento items, especially for customers outside of Taipei.
“The opening of our 20th ghost kitchen, being our 19th Spoke location in Taiwan, is another milestone that I’m proud to highlight. I am happy that we are approaching our goal of having 22 Spokes in Taiwan by the end of 2021 significantly ahead of schedule,” said Jason Chen, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. “JustKitchen’s rapid growth continues through the recent launch of the TGI Fridays Go Burgers Collection and the Cali Vibe Bento proprietary food menu. I would like to commend the efforts of our multi-functional team as they identify gaps in the market and then worked hard to develop and deploy these new items quickly for the benefit of our customers,” added Mr. Chen.
