JARS is a high-volume, hoodless/ventless fast-casual dessert concept leveraging the latest technology both for limited cooking and producing high-quality desserts, shakes, and coffee options without the need for a commercial kitchen. Celebrity Chef Fabio Viviani has combined his favorite desserts, the most creative presentation imaginable, his experience in executing restaurant concepts and his ability to create “Instagrammable” and viral food content…. Welcome to the JARS franchise!
JARS is an exciting experience, featuring decadent desserts from all over the world. Fan favorites include ridiculous chocolate chip cookies, creamy cheesecake, fresh apple pie, Southern peach cobbler, the insane “Gooey Butter Cake” and Fabio’s signature Italian Tiramisu, just to name a few.
Minimal cooking and limited number of actions needed to serve make this concept easy to replicate and execute. JARS does not require an elevated chef or a full kitchen buildout.
No hood or black iron required, with limited need for kitchen. Co-packing and easy assembly drastically reduce ticket times and cut kitchen labor.
90% of the desserts and bases are prepared offsite and shipped frozen or refrigerated. This technique produces results impossible to achieve through any other organizational method. It ensures quality, safety, and consistency in each jar, no matter which JARS location you are visiting.
JARS features over 100 different desserts throughout the year, including fan favorites and weekly features. Customers are able to check the JARS Instagram page weekly to see what flavors have made the list.
