First Foods Group Exceeds 7-Figure Milestone
NEW YORK, NY, April 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — First Foods Group, Inc. (OTCQB: FIFG) (the “Company”), a fully reporting Company with growing interests in the food and food service industry, is pleased to provide an update regarding the achievement of its 7-figure capital milestone.
As of today, the Company has put to work $400,000 of related party debt financing, $365,000 of unrelated party equity financing, and over $235,000 of income and deferred revenue derived from its burgeoning merchant cash advance business. Up until very recently in its relatively short history, the Company was exclusively self-funded, but has now secured a number of six-figure investors. Currently, First Foods Group has just over 17 million shares outstanding, 790,000 preferred warrants outstanding, and no convertible debt.
In just six months, the Company’s Funding Division has participated in 55 merchant advance deals for over $460,000. The Company has used its merchant advance proceeds to more than double its original cash outlay for new deals. “Our capital raising strategy, combined with short-term merchant advance payback, provides financial flexibility that keeps the Company nimble and able to quickly respond to promising business opportunities, such as our Holy Cacao subsidiary that is currently in negotiation with manufacturers to produce high-end chocolate edibles,” stated Mark Keeley, CFO.
“We believe this is a significant achievement for First Foods Group,” stated Harold Kestenbaum, CEO. “To have achieved this level of proof-of-concept with a significant and growing revenue component is affirming and we intend to more vigorously pursue investment and operational opportunities.”
Members of the Company’s Board of Directors have contributed their own personal capital to launch its current operations.
“We are committed to growing this Company the right way, as demonstrated by the significant time we have dedicated and the personal money we have deployed,” said Kestenbaum. “By doing so, we have created opportunity without entertaining some of the usual pitfalls that can be detrimental to the long-term success of a developing public company.”
