For us at Ghost Kitchen Bangladesh, past few months have been very rewarding, Alhamdulillah. Being in the Top 65 list at BIG 2021 and more recently Top 10 at Unicorn Battle is remarkable for a new startup like ours as we are just stepping into 7 months of operations. Within these few months of operation, we have established 4 Brands (Friggy’s, Party Pizza, Wrappo and Haleem Guys), 3 own-kitchens at Tejgaon, Moghbazar and Banani, and 4 Fulfillment Partner kitchens, and the overall response from both the industry and our end-consumers has been amazing.
