Camile Thai is expanding into the United States through a partnership with Kitchen United Mix.
The Irish-founded Asian food chain has opened two outlets in Chicago as a delivery and takeout-only operation, with plans to open a further three this year.
Under the terms of the partnership, Camile Thai licenses Kitchen United its brand and technology, and they get a local restaurant operator to cook the food in their kitchen.
Camile Thai provides its recipies, logistics, technology, and marketing support.
The Camile Thai and Kitchen United partnership will continue to grow this year, with new locations opening in Chicago River North, Pasadena and Austin.
Camile Thai CEO Brody Sweeney said: “We are excited to bring our concept to the US and work closely with Kitchen United given its definitive leadership position in the ghost kitchen industry, along with an impressive list of existing and prospective operator partners.”
Founded in 2017, Kitchen United is a provider of restaurant hub technology, logistics and turn-key commercial kitchen space.
