“This is the first time The ONE Group is partnering with a ghost kitchen concept like REEF, so we’re excited to open in Austin to discover potential growth opportunities this partnership can unlock,” says Emanuel “Manny” Hilario, President and CEO of The ONE Group. “Customers can expect the same quality food they’d get in any of our restaurants, delivered to their doors quickly and efficiently. Our menus will be comprised of fan-favorite dishes like Kona Grill’s variety of sushi offerings and the KG Cheeseburger and Bao Boxes from Bao Yum – we’re looking forward to creating even more affinity for these brands in and around Austin,” continued Hilario.
