FORT WORTH, TX / ACCESSWIRE / June 12, 2023 / Muscle Maker, Inc. (MMI), the "Company" (Nasdaq:GRIL), today announced it has named David Errington to its Board of Directors.

Mr. Errington is the second nomination to be named of the final three board member seats.

"We are thrilled to welcome David to the Muscle Maker board," commented MMI CEO Michael Roper. "His expertise in the sustainability and environmental sector, particularly in the GCC region, will bring valuable insights as MMI continues to grow into a global, food-focused organization."

As disclosed in an 8K filing on November 18, 2022, MMI and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sadot LLC, entered into a service agreement whereby Sadot engaged Aggia LLC FZ to perform services related to the purchase of and sale of physical food commodities. Upon Sadot generating certain net income targets, Aggia has the right to nominate up to eight directors and would be issued shares of common stock. Based on successfully meeting previous income targets, Aggia has already appointed sevenDirectors to the MMI board. By crossing the $9.9 million threshold, AGGIA has the right to nominate three final candidates to the MMI board of directors. Once the three nominations are approved, AGGIA will have appointed all eight board members as per the service agreement, bringing the current size of the MMI board of directors to 15. The complete Aggia agreements can be viewed in our 8K filing posted on November 18, 2022.

About Muscle Maker, Inc.

In late 2022, MMI began its evolution from a consumer-focused, U.S. restaurant business into a global, food-focused organization with two distinct business units:

Sadot LLC

MMI's largest operating unit is its newly-created subsidiary, Sadot LLC. Sadot is an international agri-foods company engaged in trading and shipping food (and feed) commodities such as soybean meal, wheat and corn. Sadot was formed in partnership with Aggia LLC FZ, a Dubai based, international consulting firm that provides services to companies operating in the global food supply chain.

MMI Restaurant Group

MMI's legacy business is our limited collection of 50+ restaurants, including Pokémoto Hawaiian Poké & Boba Tea and Muscle Maker Grill, and our subscription, fresh-prep meal service, Superfit Foods, with 30+ points of distribution plus in-home and national delivery. All three concepts compete in the growing healthier-for-you segment. National franchise development of the Pokémoto concept is the key growth driver with more than 50 franchise units already in the 2023 pipeline.

MMI continues to grow in size, diversity of operations, as well as in human and financial capital, but the principles that guided the Company remain the same - sourcing and providing healthier foods. For more information please visit www.musclemakerinc.com.
