The Company Will Operate a Ghost Kitchen within Jialong Technology to Provide Catered Food for Corporate Employees as well as Branded Meals to Other Huanke Road Manufacturers
VANCOUVER, BC, April 14, 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, is pleased to announce the opening of an exclusive ghost kitchen location at Jialong Technology Inc. (“JT“) within the Taoyuan Environmental Science and Technology Park (the “Taoyuan Tech Park“), which is the only area of its kind in Northern Taiwan. The Company will also provide JustKitchen-branded meals to other manufacturers located in the Taoyuan Technology Industrial Zone. Located in the Gold Coast area of Guanyin District, Taoyuan City, the Taoyuan Tech Park’s key areas of focus include the manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment, metal and machinery.
The level of local demand for catered food has been assessed by Company management as high, and JustKitchen will be the only vendor working to provide ready-to-eat meals to Huanke Road manufacturers in the Taoyuan Technology Industrial Zone. Similar to the Company’s recently announced arrangements in the Hsinchu Science Park, the exclusive location within JT’s offices positions JustKitchen to further expand its business-to-business service offering. Pursuant to the terms of the commercial arrangement, JT will provide all capital expenditures for the ghost kitchen while the Company will pay JT for rent, water and electricity via a profit-sharing mechanism.
The Taoyuan Tech Park is a newer, ecologically focused industrial zone that is approximately 77 acres in size. It is situated on a beautiful coastline and its surrounding environment, landscape and seaside features offer an enriching environment that foster professional ingenuity and technological innovation. The Taoyuan Tech Park is located across Baiyu Lane, Guanyin Lane and Dataan Lane, Guanyin District, Taoyuan City. The north of the Guanyin Urban Planning Area is Baiyu District, the south is Tangwei District, and it is adjacent to the Dataan Binhai Industrial Special Zone.
“Securing an exclusive ghost kitchen location within the Taoyuan Tech Park and being able to provide a high volume of JustKitchen-branded meals to JT’s employees, as well as those of other manufacturers in the area by way of remote ordering technology, is yet another opportunity for us to showcase JKOS,” said Jason Chen, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. “This contract allows us to broaden the distribution network of our brands in a way that is light on capital expenditures yet reaches a large number of captive customers. I credit this agility to our maturing tech stack and robust brand portfolio,” 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.
