FAQ

Questions?We are here to help.

How much does it cost to start a ghost kitchen in Boston?

With CloudKitchens, getting started in a virtual kitchen can cost as little as $30,000, depending on your location, the space, and the available services. That figure stands in stark contrast with the average cost of opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant, which can easily climb to more than $1 million.


What is a ghost kitchen?

Whether you call them ghost kitchens, virtual kitchens, or dark kitchens, these food establishments offer chefs all the benefits of a professional restaurant—without the “restaurant” part. Essentially, ghost kitchens are just kitchens; there’s no public seating in sight.

Instead, a virtual kitchen caters to online food delivery and pick-up orders. Built in high-volume areas with plentiful parking and convenient take-out windows, dark kitchens offer a cost-effective way to serve the masses.


Are ghost kitchens popular in Boston?

 Because ghost kitchens are “invisible” to the average diner, you wouldn’t know it by looking. But yes—ghost kitchens are becoming increasingly popular in Boston (and across the country). Why? 

Virtual kitchens are exploding in popularity because they offer easy access to the online food delivery industry, which has continued to expand after the pandemic.


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).
