Winnipeg’s Carbone Restaurant Group to scale up with ghost kitchens and pizza robotics concepts


Winnipeg – Carbone Restaurant Group Ltd., a Winnipeg-based franchise restaurant group, will use $2.5 million in financing to scale up its ghost kitchen brands, bricks-and-mortar franchises and robotics concepts.

With four active locations and more than 10 locations in early development, the group plans include opening more than 100 kitchens and restaurant franchises over the next several years.

“We are bringing game-changing concepts and technology into the restaurant industry,” said Benjamin Nasberg, founder and chief executive officer. “This strategic investment will allow us to take CRG to new heights and capitalize on our business development plans.”

The financing, led by Gravitas Securities Inc., comes on the heels of the group securing new development and franchising partners across Canada for its flagship “Fast Fired by Carbone” quick-service restaurant pizza franchise concept.
