What's a Ghost Kitchen?

 

Ghost kitchens, also known as cloud kitchens, are delivery-only restaurants. There are no dining rooms, tables, or chairs. There is just a kitchen. The only way customers can order from ghost kitchens is through delivery apps like Uber Eats and GrubHub. The food is also delivered by these services.

 

Ghost kitchens have begun popping up across the country thanks to the proliferation and popularity of these delivery apps. Restaurant businesses either build their own ghost kitchens or rent from businesses that contain multiple kitchen commissary spaces in one building like Kitchen United and CloudKitchens.

 

Often, a ghost kitchen business isn't cooking and selling just one brand and menu. They can put several brands on delivery apps and use one kitchen in which to cook it all.

 

Established restaurants and food trucks looking to create a delivery-only business outside their restaurants use ghost kitchens. Entrepreneurs use them as a less-expensive way to test a concept or create a full-fledged business.

 

You may have heard the term virtual restaurant. This is not a ghost or cloud kitchen. According to the New York Times, a virtual restaurant is "attached to real-life restaurants... but make different cuisines specifically for the delivery apps."
