“We invest most of our funding into supply chain technology, food design, and hiring talent. This will continue in 2021, as we are just fifteen months old and we are still perfecting our business model. Scaling units is certainly one important objective for us, but we are also investing in streamlining our processes and systems to achieve profitability. We look forward to even more milestones in this next stage of the company’s growth.”

“Each of our new brands brings innovative cuisines to the market and we are excited to see how our customers respond. We are excited to relaunch in Kuwait after the pandemic lockdown measures prevented us from scaling earlier this year. It’s a great market for delivery where product innovation is valued by the consumer. We plan on re-opening in January with 7 kitchens and on covering over 75% of Kuwait by the end of Q2-2021 with our new brands,”
