Popular fried chicken chain, Fuku, spearheaded by Momofuku chef and restauranteur David Chang, is now available for delivery in Miami through a variety of third party apps.
Fuku has had a stand alone outpost at Hard Rock Stadium since 2017, but it quietly opened under the radar for delivery in Miami — and a variety of other cities — last week. It is selling its food out of a ghost kitchen, which are generally designed to create food exclusively for delivery apps and don’t have a storefront.
According to Eater Portland, who also just got a surprise Fuku outpost, the new locations are part of a deal with Reef Kitchens, which used to be called ParkJockey, a Miami-based company with a billion dollar valuation that has its hands in food, real estate, and technology projects. Reef Kitchen has recently gotten into the delivery game, housing trailer “restaurants” on parking lots it owns and utilizing licensing deals with brands looking to make a large footprint nationwide quickly. The Miami location of Fuku is run out of a ghost kitchen site in Downtown (201 SW 2nd Avenue) near the Miami River that also has kitchens selling items like all day breakfast items and pasta.
As of now, no official announcement regarding a partnership or licensing deal from Fuku or Reef Kitchen has been announced yet — aside from a few coy answers on Instagram.
Fuku is now available for delivery daily on UberEats, DoorDash, and Postmates.
