Commenting on the Company’s results, Zalmi Duchman, Home Bistro’s CEO, stated, “We are extremely excited that orders for our core business continued to grow by over 30% despite temporarily reallocating our resources to focus on recently achieved major milestones that will serve to shape the Company’s immediate and long-term future -

  • The Company announced on April 13, 2021 its plan to transition to fresh meal delivery utilizing vacuum skin-packaging technology and began delivering freshly prepared meals in mid-July, of its private label Home Bistro and “Iron Chef” Cat Cora brands, while launching the Dana Falk “Hungry Fan” brand.
  • During the second and third quarters of this year, we worked on completing the acquisition of Model Meals which added a West Coast production facility to Home Bistro’s operations in addition to over $2 million in annual revenue generated via distribution to only three states. Withs its assimilation into Home Bistro, distribution of Model Meals cuisine is scheduled to be expanded to all 48 contiguous states by October 2021.
  • In response to the increase in production, our continual recruitment of celebrity chefs and onboarding of our newest celebrity chefs - including Ayesha Curry, Claudia Sandoval and Roblé Ali, the Company recently relocated its East Coast operations to a state-of-the-art, 5,000 square foot food production and fulfillment facility in south Florida.”

Mr. Duchman added, “We should expect to see a significant acceleration of revenue into the fourth quarter, historically the Company’s busiest time of year, as we expand Model Meals to nationwide distribution, begin simultaneous distribution of all five of our current celebrity chef meal brands, and implement a planned increase in our marketing spend. This is an exciting time in the evolution of Home Bistro.”
