Questions?We are here to help.

Are commercial kitchens common in Milwaukee?

Recently, commercial kitchens have been picking up steam in Cream City. From big-name chains to independent local restaurants, many establishments are now delivering food made in dark kitchens to happy customers. As long as the public demand for take-out remains consistent, commercial kitchens will continue to thrive.

What is a ghost kitchen?

A ghost kitchen is a professional kitchen that’s built to serve a delivery-only customer base. Ghost kitchens do not have attached dining rooms for in-person dining, public-facing signage, or storefront space. In fact, you’ve probably walked by some before without even realizing it. For this reason, they’re sometimes also referred to as “dark kitchens.”

CloudKitchens ghost kitchens take the pain out of opening a delivery-only business, with dedicated facilities, onsite staff to help with fulfillment and maintenance, and proprietary technology that streamlines the whole process.

How much does it cost to get started in a Milwaukee commercial kitchen?

With CloudKitchens, you can start cooking in a commercial kitchen space for as little as $30K.

Compared to the $500K to $1 million+ it can take to launch a sit-down brick-and-mortar restaurant, cooking out of a ghost kitchen is the smart financial choice. After all, the less you spend on opening and overhead, the sooner you can start turning a profit.

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).
