FAQ

Questions?We are here to help.

What's required to start a restaurant in Atlanta?

Dine-in, delivery-only, commissary kitchen or commercial kitchen, Atlanta restaurateurs need to check off many vital to-dos before opening any food service operation. Thankfully, CloudKitchens has either already taken care of or can guide you through the standard restaurant requirements:

- Zoning/Building – Opening a food service business requires an adequate location for a new restaurant and the proper zoning and construction permits

- Business license – The City of Atlanta grants business licenses to qualified vendors

- Food service establishment permit – Potential restaurant entities must pass food and safety inspections in order to be granted an operation permit from the Georgia Department of Public Health

- Insurance – Obtaining adequate insurance coverage protects both the business owner and their future patrons (for dine-in restaurants)

These four requirements are just the beginning. Traditional restaurants will also need to take care of important matters such as staffing, purchasing equipment and supplies, financing, marketing, and more.

When you open a delivery-only kitchen through CloudKitchens, you cut through costly, time-consuming red tape with ease. Reach out to our team today to learn how to get your kitchen up and running in as little as six weeks, with an initial investment in the tens of thousands rather than millions.


What is a ghost kitchen?

Atlanta is already home to plenty of ghost kitchens (also referred to as dark kitchens). These spaces allow chefs and entrepreneurs to cater directly to an online audience and keep costs low, since ghost kitchens do not have an associated in-person dining room. 

They’re the perfect answer to today’s preference for convenient delivery. You can serve the same delicious food to an even larger audience for a fraction of the cost.


Are commercial kitchens profitable?

Thanks to their comparatively low overhead, commercial kitchens have the potential to turn an incredible profit. A commercial kitchen’s profitability depends on several factors, like the location, branding, and operating systems at play.


How does a commercial kitchen help your existing restaurant grow?

Operating a commercial kitchen concept and business model allows restaurant owners to serve a wider clientele while minimizing overhead. Commercial kitchens also give you the flexibility to try out new menus or even new restaurants, all within one commercial kitchen space.


How much do commercial kitchens cost?

The cost of opening and operating a commercial kitchen will vary. When you work with CloudKitchens, you can get your ghost kitchen up and running with an investment as low as $30k (compared to the average $1 million for a brick-and-mortar, traditional restaurant).
