New York-based ghost kitchen company Zuul has announced that it has received $9 million in funding.
It plans to use the money to expand across New York City.
The company currently services brands that deliver to both residential and commercial customers throughout downtown Manhattan, working from its Vandam Street flagship location.
With this expansion it hopes to enter new high-demand areas across the city’s five boroughs.
“By raising this additional capital, Zuul can continue to play a central role in the restaurant industry’s accelerating shift toward delivery while addressing the challenges this shift presents,” said Corey Manicone, co-founder and CEO of Zuul.
“We partner with restaurants to improve the experience end-to-end. As Zuul expands, so too can our members dynamically scale and drive attractive incremental unit economics.”
Meanwhile, Sean Fitzgibbons, co-founder and CBO of Zuul, also noted: “Zuul’s physical and digital infrastructure provides the differentiated value layer in the tech-enabled food delivery evolution. This is reflected by the waiting list of brands who have already committed to partnering with Zuul at future locations across NYC.”
The company provides a scalable, plug-and-play infrastructure around its kitchens, including onsite operational support and a proprietary digital marketplace to support demand generation. The comprehensive suite of services extends the delivery capabilities of restaurants and virtual brands.
