NEW YORK and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Treasure Global Inc (NASDAQ: TGL) (“TGI”, or the “Company”), an innovative e-commerce platform providing seamless technology enabled solutions for lifestyle needs, today announced that it has signed its previously announced licensing agreement with Morganfield’s Holding Sdn Bhd (“Morganfield’s”), a restaurant chain specializing in comfort food and American-style barbecue, in which Morganfield’s has granted TGI an exclusive worldwide license to grant sub-licensees to third parties to use Morganfield’s trademarks for the restaurant business. Pursuant to the agreement, Morganfield’s will also adopt TGI’s digital food & beverage (“F&B”) management system, TAZTE, in its nine franchisees in Malaysia, China, and Singapore, accelerating the rollout of TAZTE in the region.
“At TGI we believe the future is digital. With that in mind, we have set out to transform the F&B industry with TAZTE, our innovative digital F&B management system that improves efficiency of both the front and back operations of the F&B industry. TAZTE provides partnered merchants in Southeast Asia with an integrated technology ecosystem to manage their systems more efficiently with automated solutions for all F&B business and customer needs, reducing manual processes and superseding conventional point-of-sale programs,” said Sam Teo, Chief Executive Officer of TGI. “Through our licensing agreement with Morganfield’s, not only will TAZTE be adopted into their nine existing franchisees, but TGI will have the opportunity to grant sub-licensees to third parties to open additional Morganfield’s restaurants in the region that will also adopt TAZTE. TGI will act as master franchisor by managing brand loyalty and raw material supply to accelerate this process of expansion for TAZTE. This agreement will provide TGI with additional revenue streams including start-up fees from new locations, monthly licensing fees, and supply chain.”
“Further, TGI plans to replicate this process with additional popular F&B brands in Southeast Asia to become the largest F&B chain, without owning any bricks-and-mortar. We believe this strategy will help us to expand the use of our innovative solutions more rapidly as well as to capture data on vital components of supply chain to better understand, improve, and innovate our solutions and future solutions,” concluded Mr. Teo.
