JustKitchen, a cloud kitchen startup, will start trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange Venture Exchange on Thursday morning. JustKitchen is using cloud kitchens to create the next generation of restaurant franchising “It’s a really convenient way to get into the market and with the ghost kitchen industry in particular, it’s early stage and there’s a lot of runways,” co-founder and chief executive officer Jason Chen told TechCrunch. The Great Reset One of the reasons JustKitchen decided to list on TSX Venture Exchange is Chen’s close ties to the Canadian capital markets, where he worked as an investment banker before moving to Taiwan to launch the startup.

These factors made listing on the board a natural choice for JustKitchen, Chen told TechCrunch.
