“We are so excited to partner with Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen at our Parliament location,” said Adam Armeland, CEO and co-founder of Kitchen Hub.

“A huge part of our mission is to offer a wide variety of fan-favourite restaurants and make them available in a broader geographic range within the city. Chubby’s is well established in the downtown core, and now east-enders can also enjoy their iconic dishes.”

This would be Chubby’s second location in the city, something its chef de cuisine, Andrea Di Mauro, is excited about.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to inspire and grow Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen as we begin operating with Kitchen Hub,” said Di Mauro.

“A lot of the daily headaches of running a business are already taken care of and the chefs can focus on what we do best – cook amazing dishes for people who are excited about our food.”

As for Kitchen Hub, this virtual food hall has established a strong grasp in this particular market after opening their first location at 935 The Queensway in Etobicoke, just weeks before the first pandemic-related lockdowns in Toronto.

“There was already a demand for virtual food halls before COVID-19, and the pandemic simply accelerated public awareness and the embracing of this convenient concept,” said Mathew Abramsky, co-founder, CFO, and head of Real Estate of Kitchen Hub.

“There has been a significant cultural shift surrounding takeout and virtual food halls will continue to thrive post-pandemic.”

Delivery and pick-up orders for Kitchen Hub are available via Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes, and DoorDash.
