Houston foodies have a new option to satisfy their cravings for the variety of cuisines the city is known for with Kitchen United MIX now open in the Heights.

Founded by restaurant owners and operators in Pasadena, Calif. in 2017, Kitchen United MIX was created to serve customers through off-premise dining available through take-out or delivery. Over the last five years, the multi-restaurant ordering platform has expanded to 14 locations across the country including one in Houston inside the Kroger at 1035 N. Shepherd Drive in the Heights that opened early this year.

“We have been excited about the Houston market since 2017 when we launched, we were just looking for the right venue,” said Cassandra Luong, marketing program manager at Kitchen United MIX. “This Kroger on Shepherd is such a good location given the area demographics and size of the store itself. What’s really cool is that by the end of this year, Texas will be the state that has the most Kitchen United MIX locations.”

The Houston location features concepts from more than 15 restaurants, ranging from sushi to sandwiches to plant-based burgers. The food is all restaurant quality and includes well-loved brands plus newer start-up concepts.

“That includes barbecue from Burns Original BBQ which is a local brand, burgers from Fuddruckers, and breakfast burritos from Bad-Ass Breakfast Burritos,” Luong said. “Plus, Fuku just launched in the Houston location which is spicy fried chicken sandwiches by celebrity chef David Chang, so it’s a great variety.”

The Kitchen United MIX concept is meant to be seamless for not only the consumer, but also for those interested in expanding or breaking into the industry. Restaurant owners can lease space inside a Kitchen United MIX location, which also includes time efficient and labor-related ways to expand their presence faster.

“We handle a lot of the front-of-house management and some back-of-house items like sanitizing and cleaning,” Luong said. “That’s an easier way for a restaurant to break through and start serving more customers.”

On the consumer side, anyone can order from Kitchen United MIX for delivery or take-out, including from multiple restaurants on one order with only one delivery fee. Plus, customers can order ahead of time, do their grocery shopping at Kroger, and then grab their take-out from one or more restaurants at Kitchen United MIX.

“If you want sushi and your friend wants barbecue, you can get that in one ticket, with one delivery fee,” Luong said. “What’s really great about the Houston location is that we are located inside Kroger. It’s a great spot for people who want to do groceries and [grab] takeout in one spot.”

Customers can order food directly from Kitchen United MIX’s website at www.kitchenunited.com, in person at the store inside Kroger, or on the brand’s mobile app.
