Happy Meal has been a big player in the fast food industry for a while, and now the company is set to get even bigger.
According to the company, Happy Meal, the first food delivery startup to enter the food delivery market, has been awarded a $2.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to expand its operations in the South and Southwest regions.
The grant is part of the National Food Infrastructure program, which supports food service companies to invest in their supply chain and grow their businesses.
The Food and Drug Administration has been working with Happy Meal on a variety of new technologies to enhance its delivery capabilities, according to Happy Meal.
These include “advanced imaging technology” and “enhanced delivery vehicles.”
The company plans to use the grant to launch new delivery vehicles, including a “small, high-speed, low-cost vehicle,” and to launch “a new delivery truck,” according to the announcement.
This could help the company reach more customers faster and better.
In addition to the $2 million grant, Happy Feast said it is also in talks with the USDA and the Food and Consumer Protection Bureau.
Happy Meal also said it will be working with its partner in the delivery market to develop a mobile app for customers to purchase meal kits and other meals.
The company has received funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which is focused on helping small businesses achieve success.
