First Foods Group Retains Cannabis Business Expert Robert Hunt

Hunt will Explore Natural Synergies and Opportunities for First Foods in the Legal Cannabis Industry

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 23, 2017) - First Foods Group, Inc. (OTCQB: FIFG) (the "Company"), a current, SEC reporting Company with growing interests in the food and food service industry, is pleased to announce the signing of cannabis business expert Robert Hunt, Esq. to identify opportunities in the legal cannabis industry where First Foods' management, expertise, and relationships could have significant impact.

Rob Hunt is one of the preeminent consultants in the legalized marijuana industry. He has proven effective to his client base due to his well-rounded expertise in cannabis policy, law, legislation, and finance. Rob has been instrumental in several of the best known and most successful cannabis businesses in operation today.

Hunt will work closely with First Foods Group's management team, which is led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Harold Kestenbaum who has previously served on the Board of Directors for pizza chain Sbarro and as Franchise Counsel for national brands including 1-800-FLOWERS, Nathan's Famous, and Five Guys.

"Rob Hunt is perhaps the best possible fit to be our ambassador to the cannabis industry," stated Harold Kestenbaum. "He has both the credibility and contacts to help us pursue successes in the near-term while helping us articulate and officiate a revenue producing cannabis component of First Foods' overall business plan."

"The growth of the legal cannabis industry is accelerating rapidly, but there is a dearth of creative and identifiable brands that define the alternative means of consumption category," stated Hunt. "By leveraging the combination of management and cannabis experience on this team, First Foods has the opportunity to curate an experience that has never been seen before in the cannabis space. Personally, I believe that I have the network and background to bring this vision to market, which should drive value to the companies we select to work with and ultimately, to First Foods shareholders."
