Which had TIC Tac delivery on their 2021 bingo card? If you did, congratulations and please let me in on your divination secrets. Virtual Dining Concepts announced on Friday that it is partnering with the social video app to launch hundreds of delivery-only locations in 2022, according to Bloomberg.

While it might seem odd, menu and restaurant development company Virtual Dining Concepts has experience in merging the worlds of restaurants and video platforms. The company has partnered with YouTuber MrBeast to create MrBeast Burger, the same type of delivery-only service that it provides with TikTok.

The “locations” will not be traditional TikTok brand restaurants. Rather, existing restaurants can partner with VDC, using existing restaurant equipment to create the dishes offered by TikTok Kitchen. These meals are then delivered by one of the major food delivery companies like DoorDash or GrubHub.

When CNET reached out to TikTok for comment, a spokesperson said the company would have more details to announce as the spring launch approaches.

For those of us who are not inclined to cook, service is a way to check famous dishes from the app without risking a kitchen fire. VDC expects 300 TikTok kitchens to open in March, with 1,000 locations planned by the end of 2022.
