Upscale Family Restaurant, Giggles n' Hugs Expands With New Location at
Glendale Galleria

The Kid-Themed Restaurant Signs a Ten-Year Commercial Lease with Scheduled
Opening During the Fall of 2013

Los Angeles, May 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LOS ANGELES, Calif., - (May  29, 
2013) - Giggles N' Hugs, Inc. (OTCQB: GIGL) expands its kid-themed  restaurant 
to include a new  location at the Glendale  Galleria in Glendale,  California. 
The 6,000-square-foot upscale family restaurant and play space is scheduled to
open fall of 2013. The company's  solely-owned subsidiary, GNH CC, Inc.,  has 
signed a  ten-year commercial  lease with  one of  Southern California's  most 
prominent shopping  centers. Glendale  Galleria is  owned by  General  Growth 
Properties (GGP).

Giggles N'  Hugs is  the  pioneer and  only  restaurant that  brings  together 
high-end, organic food with the play elements and entertainment for  children. 
Giggles N' Hugs offers a safe, comfortable and family-friendly atmosphere with
a play area dedicated to children ages  ten and younger. The restaurant has  a 
high-quality menu made  from fresh,  organic foods  that are  enjoyed by  both 
children and adults. With nightly entertainment such as magic shows, concerts,
puppet shows, face painting  and arts and crafts,  Giggles N' Hugs has  become 
the number one destination for families  wanting healthy food in a casual  and 
fun atmosphere.

"We are very excited to expand to our newest location in the Glendale Galleria
in partnership with  GGP," said  Joey Parsi, Chairman  and CEO  of Giggles  N' 
Hugs. "We believe  this lease will  be the  first of many  new locations  with 
them. Our goal is and  has been to expand this  concept to as many  locations 
throughout the country as we can," he added. "We believe that everyone  needs 
some Giggles N' Hugs and with this  newest location, we are confident that  we 
are on the right path."

Parsi and his  wife, Dorsa founded  Giggles N'  Hugs in 2007  after what  they 
describe as  a  "void  in  the marketplace"  for  restaurants  that  encourage 
children to be themselves and play while parents can enjoy a quality meal in a
casual setting, without having made to feel uncomfortable as is often the case
when dining out with young children.

In addition to its family-friendly vibe, Giggles N' Hugs is also known for its
own creation, Mom's Tricky Treat Sauce which hides pureed vegetables in  kids' 
favorite meals such as pizza, pastas and macaroni and cheese.

Giggles N' Hugs plans to extend  the quality experience of its  differentiated 
concept into on-brand products that can be sold within physical locations  and 
through outside retail  partners. The  items will  include branded  children's 
clothing, frozen foods (with Mom's  Tricky Treat Sauce), coloring books,  toys 
and other children-related products.

Giggles N' Hugs has  become a "hot spot"  for all parents including  Hollywood 
celebrities such as Adam Sandler,  Mark Wahlberg, Halle Berry, Nicole  Kidman, 
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, among others. They have also been featured in
many news  and  entertainment  publications such  as  Bloomberg  Businessweek, 
Forbes, People Magazine, US Magazine, the New York Post and others.

Scheduled to open  its newest  location before  the holidays  at the  Glendale 
Galleria, Giggles N' Hugs is expected to perform as strong as, if not  better, 
than the other locations in its portfolio.
