FAQ

Questions?We are here to help.

Is it better to open a restaurant in Orlando or start a ghost kitchen?

If you have the $1 million+ that’s often needed to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant, welcoming diners can be a lot of fun. But aside from the astronomical costs, serving customers in a physical space comes with all kinds of challenges. There’s hiring, design choices, a lease, constant table bussing—the list goes on.

If all you want to do is get your food and culinary expertise in front of people (and make a name for yourself while doing it), a ghost kitchen is a fantastic alternative. Starting out in one of our kitchens allows you to skip the multi-month startup time and begin cooking for hungry customers in just weeks. Best of all, our kitchens are affordable, low-maintenance, and conveniently located.


How do ghost kitchens work?

Despite the name, there’s nothing scary about ghost kitchens. Also known as virtual or dark kitchens, these kitchen spaces simply give food entrepreneurs, chefs and restaurateurs a low-risk opportunity to start a new food concept. How?

By removing the “dine-in” aspect of traditional restaurants and focusing solely on delivery through a food delivery app. When the non-food-related details are out of the picture, food production becomes much simpler—and much more affordable.


Who can use our commissary kitchen in Orlando?

Our commissary/ghost kitchen facilities are available to use by anyone looking to launch or expand their food business! Orlando caterers, bakers, food truck owners and other culinary entrepreneurs can take advantage of our commissary kitchens for rent! Your individual space comes with everything you need to get started including storage space for  ingredients and other food preparation necessities.


What will I need to open my commissary kitchen in Orlando?

When you partner with CloudKitchens, you’ll need as little as $30K to get started in one of our commissary kitchens. Along with that small investment for your food business, you’ll want to prepare:

  • Your menu
  • Your logo and branding
  • A team (usually 3–6 people)
  • Any necessary licenses and permits (we can help with this!)
