Questions?We are here to help.

Are ghost kitchens gaining traction in Orange County?

They sure are. An ever-growing number of restaurants on delivery apps are already operating out of ghost kitchens. Why? As rent prices continue to rise in OC, these dark kitchens offer food entrepreneurs and chefs a low-cost alternative to starting a restaurant—a venture that can cost $1 million or more.

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.

What do I need to get started?

Investment-wise, you can get started with CloudKitchens for around 30k. You and your staff (usually 4-6 people) will be able to keep costs low as you focus on creating your menu and brand identity. 

How much does a commercial kitchen cost in the OC?

Because no two virtual kitchens are the same, providing an exact estimate is challenging. Variables like equipment needs and location can cause costs to fluctuate.

With that said, when you partner with CloudKitchens, you can get started in an Orange County commercial kitchen for as little as $30K.

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).
