49 square catering

Mark reached out to us when the pandemic first started in March 2020. 49 Square Catering was one of the largest caterers in the Bay Area when he approached us. As COVID took over the world and shut down businesses, catering came to a standstill. Mark had the kitchen, the staff, and the expertise to cook world-class food, but Mark did not know how to succeed on delivery or online. Forward Kitchens currently powers ten digital storefronts for him through which we have brought him $26,141.17 last week on track for $1.3 million in revenue run rate. Mark tells us that most of his other catering colleagues went bankrupt, but because of Forward Kitchens Mark has been able to keep his lights open.

KO SISters seoul food

Sandy and her brother opened their food truck, KO Sisters Seoul Food, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in May 2020. They had watched how the food truck movement became more and more popular in Portland, and decided to take a leap of faith to start the business during unprecedented times. With a newly built food truck and Sandy's expertise in the kitchen, the only thing missing was the know-how on how to succeed in delivery and online. Forward Kitchens currently powers a single digital storefront for KO Sisters Seoul Food which has brought them on track for $100,000 in revenue run rate. Business has been going so well that the siblings are opening a second location in mid-November. The new location will be also powered by Forward Kitchens on opening day.

R'Jabs

R'jabs wings is a two-location minority-owned business outside Atlanta, Georgia. When they became interested in virtual restaurants they connected with Forward Kitchens with some skepticism about the concept. Within just two weeks they had launched 3 virtual brands at their flagship location and were selling more than double the delivery orders than with just their Physical brand. They added 3 virtual brands at their second location shortly after and now across their business 6-7 out of every 10 orders they get are from their virtual brands.

babaz grill

Musab started his business when a close friend from Michigan encouraged him to start his own restaurant four years ago. When he began his virtual restaurants with Forward Kitchens, he was skeptical at the volume of orders he would receive due to experience working with other companies with a similar service. Within the first week of launching his first three virtual restaurants with Forward Kitchens, they outperformed all virtual concepts he is currently running. Now, 85% of the delivery orders Musab receives are from Forward Kitchens virtual brands.

leo’s coney island hoover

Leo's Coney Island is a franchise focusing on making bar food to keep things quick and simple. With over 70 different locations across the country, the Hoover Road location in Warren, Michigan sought new ways to bring in more revenue streams for their company. They looked to different companies to drive sales such but none have been as impactful or as responsive as Forward Kitchens.

Since launching multiple brands with Forward Kitchens, the Leo's Coney Island team was overwhelmed with the success and the volume of orders they had received especially with cuisines they had never worked with before such as Vegan Burgers. Without Forward Kitchens, they would lose about a quarter of their current revenues. They would definitely recommend Forward Kitchens to other restaurants and even other Leo's Coney Island franchises.
