On April 22nd, 2019 The Joseph Richard Group, under their newest venture Meal Ticket Brands, is set to open 100 restaurants in one day across the Fraser Valley. With strategic partnerships already in place, expansion into Greater Vancouver and across Canada will not be far behind. These delivery-only restaurant concepts reflect The Joseph Richard Group’s continued diversification and expansion as an innovative leader in the restaurant and hospitality industry. The company has been in research and development for over a year, curating popular foods and fine-tuning menu offerings.
These ‘Ghost Restaurants’ will service customers through an online-only delivery concept, operating with increased efficiencies to streamline the operations process. The concept allows for brands to build out a number of cuisines, effectively optimizing their ability to cater to the ever-changing tastes and trends of consumers.
The Joseph Richard Group continues to lead the way in the Canadian restaurant industry, shattering records to launch a concept that has yet to be done before on such a mass scale. By repurposing traditional kitchen spaces in already operating businesses, this new concept will benefit the stores they are housed in as well as their culinary teams by allowing them to diversify even further. Even more, the guests will be the biggest benefactor by having an even wider variety of top-level offerings available by delivery to their homes.
“We’re very excited to be at the forefront of innovation for the restaurant industry. This launch is a testament to the continued popularity of food delivery services. Through innovative technology and an incredible team, we’ve been able to disrupt the status quo and offer a new way for our customers to enjoy a variety of unique cuisines”, explains Ryan Moreno, CEO of The Joseph Richard Group.
Among the fifteen restaurant concepts in research and development, Meal Ticket Brands includes a variety of offerings that were carefully conceptualized by the team at The Joseph Richard Group. Brands include Obey Poke, STAK’D Sandwich Co., Frsh Frys, Power Plants, and Sweet Tooth Desserts. Each concept’s menu has been carefully designed by the distinguished JRG culinary team.
“Ghost restaurants allow us to continuously curate menu items to society’s constant changing tastes and trends”, explains Andy Slinn, JRG Executive Chef. “From Poke bowls to Fried Chicken, guests can enjoy foods that fit their taste while maintaining the quality and standard that The Joseph Richard Group is proud to stand behind”.
Moreno adds, “Chef David Jorge, one of our corporate Chefs and Master Chef Canada winner, has cultivated a menu based on his winning dish, the Master Chicken, made famous on the popular CTV show. Now our guests will be able to have MasterChef quality food in the comfort of their own home. When would that have been possible before?”
To increase the reach of the launch and add some fun to an already exciting announcement JRG has partnered with some like-minded business’ to spread the word of these 100 new concepts. The first 1000 guests beginning on April 22nd will receive VIP access to their Free Meal Ticket.
