What is a cloud kitchen?

Cloud kitchens take restaurants to a whole new place.

A cloud kitchen is a rentable kitchen in a shared space which allow restaurateurs to prepare food for delivery.

Picture a large space with numerous stations (mini-restaurants) of stainless steel prep tables, hood vents, stoves, ovens, and sinks, each with its own orders coming in direct from customers.

In short, cloud kitchens are a branch of a restaurant that offers delivery services only.

They are also referred to as ‘ghost kitchens’, ‘dark kitchens’ or even ‘virtual kitchens’ and thanks to lower real estate and operational costs as well as a new customer base for eateries to explore, they are making growth far more accessible.

Why cloud kitchens?

Cloud kitchens allow chefs to prepare food without having to worry about maintaining the dine-in portion of a brick-and-mortar location.

They are fast becoming a hot trend in the food-delivery arena and it is easy to see why:

  • With no brick-and-mortar restaurant, there are lower upfront and operational costs
  • These kitchens are usually in densely populated areas allowing for more customers & quicker turnaround
    No fear of outgrowing your restaurant space as cloud kitchens are flexible and scalable
  • Cloud kitchens are fully functioning commercial kitchen spaces, so you can hit the ground running with no set up costs

Cloud Kitchen examples:

There are many examples of cloud kitchens across the world from CloudKitchens in San Francisco to Karma Kitchens in London to WeKitchens in Sydney.

What is the future of cloud kitchens?

Whilst many restaurants have suffered due to Covid, but cloud kitchens have been able to weather the Covid-19 storm and as consumers increasingly lean in to getting take away, the cloud-kitchen market will likely get even hotter.

In the current environment and with the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, cloud kitchens or food and beverages outlets backed by a cloud kitchen network have a better chance of survival and are likely the future of the food industry.

And then, into the future restaurants across the world will reappear, and cloud kitchens will also remain – both will survive.
