US-based restaurant group Fox Restaurant Concepts is reportedly planning to launch two new ghost kitchen restaurants in the US.

While one is a new concept for the chain, the other would be a takeout-only version of its existing restaurant line, Flower Child, according to a report by Azcentral.

The new concept, dubbed Fly Bye, is set to open next month in Phoenix, Arizona.

It will be located at The Yard, a converted motorcycle garage that houses Fox Restaurant Concepts’ Culinary Dropout.

Fly Bye will serve pan pizza, chicken tenders, chicken wings, salads, mozzarella sticks, and a number of house-made dips, in addition to Culinary Dropout’s cheese fondue.

Customers will be able to avail curb-side pickup and contactless delivery through the restaurant’s website, as well as third-party delivery apps.

The takeout-only version of Flower Child is expected to open early next year in Tampa.

Fox Restaurant Concepts is known for popular casual dining concepts such as Culinary Dropout, Zinburger, Blanco, The Green House, and Arrogant Butcher.

Last year, American restaurant company The Cheesecake Factory completed the acquisition of Fox Restaurant Concepts for a total consideration of $308m.

This deal covered FRC’s two brands, including Flower Child, and the remaining stake in North Italia. The acquisition value of $308m included $12m for customary post-closing adjustments.

Fox Restaurant Concepts currently operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of The Cheesecake Factory and has more than 50 restaurant locations across the country.

Recently, US-based fast-casual restaurant chain Chipotle Mexican Grill opened a digital-only restaurant to meet the growing demand for food delivery amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
