Food Delivery Startup C3 Will Be Based In Miami, Creating 1,000 Jobs

Developer Sam Nazarian has announced plans to build a new food delivery startup based in Miami called C3, according to the Herald.

Up to 1,000 new jobs will be created by the company in Miami over the next few years.

C3 will be based at Cocowalk in Coconut Grove.

The company’s technological headquarters will also be in Miami, with up to 100 tech workers expected to be hired.

C3’s brands include Umami Burger, Krispy Rice, Sam’s Crispy Chicken, Plant Nation and EllaMia.

The company wants to use underutilized space in places such as hotels and malls, with a single kitchen that will service multiple brands all owned by C3. Consumers ordering delivery will be able to have food from multiple brands delivered together.

C3 is also building its own app called CITIZENS GO, with the goal of it becoming an alternative to third-party delivery apps.

Nazarian was a partner in developing projects in Miami including SLS and Hyde.

Back office employees with actual tech outsourced to talent in a city that has actual engineering focused universities

So true, the lack of local tech talent due to there being no good universities for engineering in the area means that most tech workers will either have to work for these companies remote or be relocated from other cities

You need to get educated on Miami education. FIU is the 4th largest University in the USA by enrollment, and graduates more black and hispanic engineerss than any other university in the USA. The Engineering Center which houses a part of the College of Engineering and Computing and is the home of FIU’s Motorola Nanofabrication Research Facility.

The university is classified among “R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity.”

A simple google search for “top engineering schools in the US” reveals that FIU doesn’t even make it on any of those lists and in the entire state of Florida only UF ranks around the low end of the Top 50 on average: https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-engineering-schools/eng-rankings You’re drinking some great kool aid if you think that FIU is an engineering school

Kudos Anonymous. You have searched Google.

#1. I never said that Florida International University was an “Engineering School”.
#2. Your Appeal to Authority with the hyperlink in your post does not address the undergraduate program at all.
#3. The fact that FIU graduates more black and Hispanic engineers than any other school is a fact. A fact, that some on this board did not know.
#4. Granted, Just because there is a high number of graduates of that program does not guarantee that they are all excellent.
#5. Many have posted there there is “No” engineering talent in Miami. or that there are “No” Universities to fill the talent pipeline. “NO” and “Zero” create a simple burden of proof. Find one talented engineer, and one University, I win.

As it turns out. These tech companies are moving here BECAUSE Miami has advanced significantly in the last decade on the education and talent issues. While it happens right in front our faces, I get it, some less talented people will not even see it. The talented people are here, more are moving here, and the 4th graders today will be in our workforce in 10 years or less.

You will be completely shocked to learn, that Florida International University is top 20 Universities in the nation for patents.

Keep riding that Miami tech hype train, you’ll be surprised by its destination! You probably also believe that Mana is about to develop the downtown and do amazing things with his Nikola Tesla Innovation Center lol, I can tell you’ve never been to MIT, Stanford, or the Bay Area

^^^ The taxes I pay have been going towards going to things like schools for that little bastard you made and don’t spend a dime to take care of. Unlike you who floated on a raft made out of coconuts to this country, I was born in this city, probably before your daddy’s nuts dropped. You probably poo poo on the MetroMover because you have nothing but a bicycle to get around and you’re mad that it doesn’t go to the places you need to go.

So this company will basically operate “ghost kitchens” in vacant big box spaces, rather than tearing them down and utilizing the land for something less disposable like an apartment complex. As if reusing them for diploma mill charter schools and Evangelical congregations wasn’t ghetto enough.

Pfft…..1,000 jobs!?!? 200 from Blackstone…1,500 here, 2,500 there.
I’ll believe it when I see it!

If Miami wants to be a world class city, they need metrovoers from my sofa to Wynwood (with 45 stops along the way so it goes every single place that I want). And other people who have child seats and cars and things…well they need to get their cars off the roads! We need more pedestrian friendly tunnels if Miami is going to be world class

Even the NYC subway doesn’t go everywhere you want, you still have to walk quite a bit to your destination.

All of that “job creation” news from these companies is a bunch of hype to get them various incentives from the local government to benefit their financial engineering. I’ll believe it when I see it too

Perhaps they can do it better. I’ve had some bad luck with Uber eats personally, maybe your experience has been different.

Idk how in the world you think your experience would be any better with a brand new company when the whole purpose of Uber eats is to have drivers available, good luck finding a driver in whatever area you live in on time.

For Miami to be a true world class city we need ACTUAL transportion that is expensive, elevated, and paid for my someone else. Like a Metromover that goes directly to 800-LUCKY and ends next to my XBox remote.

The Miami “World Class” city just had two mass shootings within the past 48 hours. One with 7 people shot in Wynwood and another with 25 people shot in Miami Gardens. This city doesn’t even have a handle on crime. Same goes for transit infrastructure & high tech education. The city regularly ranks as one with the worst cost of living vs wage levels. You can’t walk anywhere around downtown, brickell, and beyond without encountering all the homelessness. There’s nothing “World Class” about Miami

Agreed! There’s a number of issues (and people) holding us back from becoming a truly world class city. The crime is completely out of control as another shooting just happened in broad daylight in Midtown no less: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/midtown/article251806238.html It doesn’t matter how fancy developers try to make places when that crime element is in those very places committing robberies, shootings, etc Miami still has a long way to go, it’s becoming too wild west like it was back in the late 70s / early 80s

For real, it’s getting out of control, 4 shootings (all with multiple victims each) in 4 days if you include that crazy one from Thursday by the casino where the person was hanging out of the car while shooting. Goodness knows how the rest of this week will turn out

It wasn’t just 4 mass shootings, it was 6 this past weekend in Miami! https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article251807258.html There was just a drive by shooting with at least 2 other people killed in North Miami. The city is completely out of control
