Kylo Food Hall in Miami Opens

Kylo Food Hall in Miami Opens

 

If Burger King and Ms. Cheezious got together to create a meal, it would be a short rib melt sandwich complete with fries and a soda.

And if that sounds like fast food made in heaven, you can find it on the menu at Kylo, a new food hall that aims to bring together national and local restaurant brands to create a unique dining experience.

It’s all thanks to the Dark Kitchens & Virtual Restaurant division of Restaurant Brands International (RBI), a multinational fast food holding company that includes brands like Burger King and Popeyes.

According to Luis Maia, who heads the Kylo project as vice president of Dark Kitchens & Virtual Brands for RBI, the new digital-based food hall was designed to combine the best aspects of dark kitchens and traditional restaurants under one roof.

The Kylo food hall allows guests to order from multiple brands with a single order.

This week, the menu will also offer two limited-time mashups between local and global brands. They include a “Popeyes x Spris” chicken sandwich pizza (a marriage of Spris’ artisan Margherita pizza topped with a deconstructed Popeyes chicken sandwich that includes chunks of buttermilk-battered chicken, diced pickles, and a spicy sauce drizzle) and a “Burger King x Ms. Cheezious” short rib melt sandwich (a Ms. Cheezious short rib melt served with Burger King’s classic fries).

Just be sure to act fast, adds Maia, as both items will only be available during the first two weeks of operation.

Those looking to try the new concept can order via kiosk at the downtown Miami location, online via Kylo’s website, the Kylo app, or through food delivery apps including Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Grubhub.

Moving forward, Maia confirms additional locations are in the works, including one in Kendall.

The only question left to ask: Will Kylo be offering additional meal collaborations moving forward?

“In the future, anything is possible,” sums up Maia.
