Giggles N' Hugs is the first and only restaurant that brings together high-end, organic food with active, cutting-edge play and entertainment for children. Every Giggles N' Hugs location offers an upscale, family-friendly atmosphere with a dedicated play area that children 10 and younger absolutely love. We feature high-quality menus made from fresh and local foods, nightly entertainment such as magic shows, concerts, puppet shows and face painting, and hugely popular party packages for families that want to do something special.

GIGL’s unique restaurant concept has earned top reviews from many respected publications and generated strong foot traffic. The popularity of Giggles n’ Hugs has led to an agreement with one of the U.S.’s largest mall operators, Westfield Group, and the Company is operating at breakeven point, and its sales were up 7.2% in 1H17.

Similar agreements have also been worked out with the U.S.’s 2nd largest mall operator, General Growth Properties. At this location, the Company generated positive cash flow of 30% in 1H17 and sales were up by 12.4%.

With GIGL planning to increase an additional 4-5 locations in 2018, investors have the opportunity to invest in a rapidly growing restaurant operator with one of the industry’s highest potential ROIs and EBITDA margins.
