NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helbiz Kitchen, a part of Helbiz (NASDAQ: HLBZ), is bringing its ghost kitchen offerings to the United States thanks to a partnership announced today with Kitchen United, a leading ghost kitchen network in the U.S. The partnership will initially bring Helbiz Kitchen to two cities allowing users to order from a diverse set of menus.
Starting in January, users in New York City (307 West 38th St and 30 Vandam Avenue) and Austin (8023 Burnet Rd) will be able to order their favorite food items from either the Helbiz Kitchen app or Kitchen United MIX app onsite kiosk, or website - kitchenunited.com. In each of these cities, Helbiz will bring their diverse set of menus created in Milan — Burger & Sons, Pokaii, Pomodòro, Wabisabi, What the Farm, and La Bottega del Gelato — allowing anyone to satiate their food cravings.
“Since the first days of Helbiz Kitchen, our goal has been to expand it to the United States,” said Salvatore Palella, CEO of Helbiz. “We are excited for people in NYC and Austin to experience the cuisine that we have perfected in Milan. Our mission of making Helbiz a super-app by consolidating needs will be built on the dual foundation of mobility and food delivery. It is advanced faster by partnerships with market leaders like Kitchen United who will help continue our high standards of service.”
“With our proprietary, leading-edge technology, Kitchen United MIX is revolutionizing the way people order takeout and we couldn't be more excited to welcome Helbiz Kitchen and its incredible variety of cuisines to our NYC and Austin facilities.,” said Kitchen United Chief Executive Officer Michael Montagano. “Families and groups who can't agree on what to have for lunch or dinner love the ability to order foods from different restaurants, all in one easy order.”
When available, users can download the Helbiz app on the Apple Store or Google Play. When it becomes available in cities that Helbiz has micro-mobility offerings, users will be able to use the same app to solve their daily transportation and food needs.
