MRBEAST: MrBeast, an award-winning digital content creator, joined forces with Virtual Dining Concepts to create an overnight sensation in 300+ ghost kitchens. Is grocery retail next?

FOOD HALLS: About to surge post-pandemic, these hip, contemporary collections of restaurant stalls are sure to attract forward-looking CPG marketers.

WOW BAO NOW: Wow Bao created a ghost kitchen platform that slides into any restaurant kitchen, vastly expanding the footprint of this restaurant-to-retail brand.
