PHOENIX — Thirsty Lion Gastropub in Chandler has launched a new venture to bring different culinary experiences to customers all from one location.

Central Kitchen, an online food hall, will offer takeout and delivery options from five different restaurants at the convenience of one website.

Customers can choose food options from Thirsty Lion, Soy Joy, Southern Jewel, Killer Wings or Pizza and Spice.

All five of the restaurants’ menus are cooked out of the Thirsty Lion’s kitchen and can be picked up at the Chandler location. Orders can also be delivered through Postmates, GrubHub, Uber Eats and DoorDash.

“We’ve been fostering the idea of a kitchen focused on takeout and delivery for the last year,” said John Plew, president and CEO of Thirsty Lion, said in a press release “The pandemic put the process into hyper speed, and we saw this as the perfect opportunity to pivot with the climate and launch an idea that aligns with current consumer demands.

“Central Kitchen fills a need in the restaurant space by providing multiple culinary offerings from one hub. Guests can order the food that everyone in their home is craving under one ticket.”

Thirsty Lion first launched the concept in Oregon last fall, and has since expanded it to Colorado, Texas and now Arizona.
