  • JustKitchen, a ghost kitchen provider headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, is plotting an international expansion with ambitions to open locations in the U.S. this year, specifically targeting the West Coast, according to a press release. The company, which is also in the process of opening a location in Hong Kong, plans to enter Singapore and the Philippines in 2021. JustKitchen could potentially expand into Canada and further into Asia-Pacific in 2022.
