FAQ

Questions?We are here to help.

How much does it cost to open a commercial kitchen in Sacramento?

Although your expenses can vary depending on the equipment and staff you need, you can get started in a centrally located CloudKitchen for as little as $30K.

Compare that figure to the typical restaurant startup cost ($500K to $1 million+), and it’s easy to see why dark kitchens are taking the food delivery industry by storm.


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 long does it take to get set up in a Sacramento ghost kitchen?

When you partner with CloudKitchens, you can start sending out orders from a commercial kitchen in as few as six weeks. Getting going in a virtual kitchen is much faster than opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant, as most of the inspections and permits have already been handled.


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).
