Giggles N’ Hugs Extends Reservation Period for Crowdfunding Campaign

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

Los Angeles, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  – Giggles N’ Hugs, Inc. (OTCQB: GIGL), owner and operator of family-friendly restaurants that bring together high-end, organic food with active, cutting-edge play and entertainment for children, today announced that it is extending the reservation period for early investors in its crowdfunding campaign listed on Wefunder, the largest crowdfunding platform in the country.  

“Los Angeles has been dealing with the worst fires in its history over the past few days. With our Topnaga mall location  less than 4 miles away from the most devastated areas of the Woolsey fire, and with many of our customers, friends, family, and shareholders in the same area, and given the adversity some of them are going through, we thought extending the early reservation period through the end of the week was the right thing to do,” stated Joey Parsi, Founder and co-CEO”.

 “Over the years, many of our customers have asked how they might be able to invest in Giggles N Hugs and participate in our growth. By doing this campaign, we give them the opportunity to do so. Given the fires and the hardship some of them are going through, we felt that it is our duty to provide additional time so that they can focus on this when the time is right over the next few days once things calm down”.

“After the early reservation period closes, the crowdfunding campaign will open up to the general public and the Wefunder community, making the opportunity available to their nearly 200,000 investors. By extending the reservation period, customers, friends, staff and their families, as well as current and prospective shareholders, can now reserve their participation through Friday, November 16, when the campaign opens to the Wefunder community and general public, Parsi concluded.”
