What is Happening?

For those who’ve somehow not heard of Jimmy Donaldson, this 22-year-old YouTube superstar is something truly special.

In addition to reading the entire dictionary and counting from 0 to 100,000, he has given away a private island, donated 100+ cars to people in need and fundraised over $22m to plant over 22m trees.

Jimmy has recently partnered with Virtual Dining Concepts, a dark kitchen that allows personalities and brands like Jimmy to launch virtual restaurants with zero upfront fees. Jimmy’s new business is a delivery-only dining establishment with a menu that’s only accessible through major delivery apps.

What Does it Mean?

Jimmy’s new business model could be the most exciting thing since McDonald’s went mainstream and could likely spark a wave of larger scale partnerships from other internet celebrities.

💡 Alongside dark kitchens we can see numerous white labelling opportunities for businesses to help brands and partners bring their products to life - Just imagine the cloud-based winery or distillery that can help craft your own signature drink line.
