ShiftPixy Labs Ghost Kitchen also to be located in Miami area
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY), a California-based gig engagement platform provider, today announced that the Company will be relocating its corporate headquarters to the city of Miami, Florida. The relocation is part of ShiftPixy’s strategy, along with ShiftPixy Labs, to expand its business into the thriving East Coast restaurant industry. Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that the new ShiftPixy Labs Ghost Kitchen will also be located in the Miami area. The location was selected due to the Miami area’s rich and diverse food culture, which the Company expects to provide a strong customer base for both the Ghost Kitchen Incubator Project and the Incubator Contest. After the relocation, ShiftPixy’s Irvine, California office will remain open to continue serving the Company’s growing West Coast customer base.
“Since our launch in 2015, we’ve been proud to call the city of Irvine our home. Here, ShiftPixy has been able to build a strong customer base throughout the West Coast, and the Company’s beginnings in the great state of California will always be important to us,” said ShiftPixy Co-Founder and CEO Scott Absher. “With that said, we are excited to begin the Company’s next growth chapter in the thriving city of Miami. Establishing our new headquarters in one of the East Coast’s largest cities will provide the perfect foothold from which to launch our expansion to cities up and down the Eastern Seaboard.”
Mr. Absher went on to say, “Miami has long been on our roadmap because of inquiries we have from operators in Europe and Latin America, and the city is ideal as our base not only for Eastern US expansion, but for new markets beyond our borders. I’m also excited to be so close to our new Ghost Kitchen venture, and we look forward to sharing more exciting news and details in the coming weeks and months.”
Through ShiftPixy Labs, the Company expects to provide additional layers of services and engagement, from business start-up clear through to customer meal delivery. The new functionality builds on the traditional ShiftPixy gig engagement platform, which empowers restaurant operators to take full advantage of their human capital with cutting-edge tools to handle payroll, compliance and native delivery.
The Company’s new corporate address will be as follows:
501 Brickell Key Drive
Miami, Florida 33131
