    JustKitchen is using cloud kitchens to create the next generation of restaurant franchising

    JustKitchen operates cloud kitchens, but the company goes beyond providing cooking facilities for delivery meals. Instead, it sees food as a content play, with recipes and branding instead of music or shows as the content, and wants to create the next iteration of food franchises. JustKitchen currently operates its "hub and spoke" model in Taiwan, with plans to expand four other Asian markets, including Hong Kong and Singapore, and the United States this year.

    Chinese phone maker Honor partners with key chip suppliers after Huawei split

    Chinese budget phone maker Honor has signed partnerships with major chip suppliers such as Intel and Qualcomm after being spun off from under-fire parent Huawei Technologies in a bid to save it last year, it said on Friday. As Chief Executive George Zhao launched the View40, Honor's first phone model since the split, Honor said in a statement it now had its own deals with some tech firms. "They wanted to show they are Huawei reborn so that customers can trust them to have the same quality Huawei was aiming for," said Nicole Peng, VP of Mobility at Canalys, a consultancy.
