With the acquisition of Kitchen United, Nazarian further establishes his position as the unrivaled leader in the encompassing digital-and-actualized restaurant landscape with an unwavering dedication to revolutionizing the industry at-large.

EXECUTIVE QUOTES

Sam Nazarian, Founder and CEO, Everybody Eats & sbe stated, “I cannot begin to describe the excitement I have in announcing Everybody Eats- our new company built upon C3 and the acquisitions of Kitchen United assets and Nextbite. Since starting C3 in 2019, I have been watching other industry leaders such as Nextbite and Kitchen United in their journeys to change the virtual culinary industry. These companies have had incredible ideas and unbelievable instincts but just not enough capital to ultimately disrupt the market. Everybody Eats is the solution; we have created an all-encompassing platform built upon the ideas of the three best thought-leaders in the industry. This is an unbelievable turning point for the industry as I believe the connectivity of a new audience through food is one of the most exciting parts of what we do at Everybody Eats, and we look forward to continuing to change the future of food-tech under the dynamic leadership of Geoff Madding, our new COO.”

Chief Operating Officer Geoff Madding stated, “I am incredibly excited to join the Everybody Eats team, continuing the journey I began during my time at Nextbite, to disrupt, innovate, and ultimately, help evolve the culinary industry. With Sam Nazarian’s vision and our team’s dedication, I have no doubt that we will leverage the amazing work done by C3, Kitchen United, Nextbite over the past several years to create the leading company in the disruptive culinary space.”

KITCHEN UNITED

Since its founding in 2017, Kitchen United became a formidable player in the culinary tech space, becoming a ghost kitchen commissary operator that traditionally combined elements of delivery technology, real estate, and virtual restaurant brands in its operations model. With the sale of ghost kitchen assets to C3, Kitchen United will seek to pivot to a software business.

OWNING THE INDUSTRY

This announcement comes on the heels of C3’s acquisition of NextBite, a leading global lifestyle platform known for establishing and building food delivery concepts, in 2023 to create Nextbite by sbe – an independently operated subsidiary of the renowned hospitality company that will revolutionize the restaurant industry pipeline. sbe took over 20 established and notable brands including popular, licensed entities such as Fuku, Packed Bowls by Wiz Khalifa, Nestle Toll House Cookies, Super Mega Dilla, Thrilled Cheese and Nathan’s Famous; as well as the former company’s fulfillment partners.

This announcement also is amongst other newly-announced, high-profile initiatives including sbe’s recently-announced equity partnership with global music icon, Marc Anthony and his company Magnus as well as the partnership with world-renowned actress Sofia Vergara and her son, Manolo Vergara to launch innovated LatinX culinary brand, TOMA, a concept that masterfully harmonizes flavors and elements from Latin America and plans of becoming a disruptor in the LatinX Consumer Packaged Goods category. These two partnerships aim to show sbe and Everybody Eats commitment to expanding and connecting food and hospitality with the Hispanic community.
