“We believe in the strategy and vision of Ghost Kitchen and are very excited to be the first retailer to partner with Ghost Kitchens,” said Sam Hamam, senior director of licensees at Walmart Canada. “We’re always looking for ways to improve our customers’ shopping experience through better access to affordable products, services and brands.”
The pandemic has helped Ghost Kitchen Brands expand as Canadian consumers look for a seamless integration of restaurant offerings, seamless experiences, and the convenience of well-known restaurant and consumer goods brands. The company’s lean processes and cutting-edge technologies enable it to operate dozens of international brands under one banner. “Our goal is to open a ghost kitchen every 12 km across Canada and reach every Canadian in every urban market within 30 minutes, 24 hours a day,” added Marc Choy, President of GKB.
