The Boise food scene

Spaghetti - ghost kitchen

Boise is the state’s largest city with many fast-growing suburbs all around it and is known for attracting millennials and young families. Since millennials (along with gen Z-ers) are driving a significant segment of the food delivery industry, now is the perfect time to cater to a rapidly growing population of hungry, delivery-ready locals. And with a newly declared title like one of “America's Next Great Food Cities,” you’ll want to get in on this expansion with a commercial kitchen Boise residents deserve—now possible in a matter of weeks, not months or years.

CloudKitchens also helps you slash overhead costs, so you can get started with as little as $30k capital. You don’t need to worry about paying for front-of-house staff, expensive decor, or a sprawling dining room that you struggle to fill. Ghost kitchen businesses may be able to break even in as little as 6 months, compared to the years-long haul of a traditional restaurant model.

Ghost kitchen restaurateurs will use one single tablet to fulfill all orders. The tablet will collect important data and use it to provide personalized feedback, allowing you to boost sales, grow your business, and give hungry Boise customers exactly what they’re looking for. CloudKitchens uses real-world data to choose their Boise commercial kitchen facility locations, zeroing in on areas in which people order the most food for delivery.

You can reach the Boise State University students in Southeast Boise, the eclectic assortment of Central Bench residents who love the area because of its cultural richness, and the many locals in population-dense Downtown Boise. We provide the space, you whip up the food, and Boise locals enjoy quick and easy access to delicious meals—it’s a win for everybody.

What is a ghost kitchen?

Ghost kitchens, also known as dark kitchens or virtual kitchens, are commercial kitchens built for food delivery. They’re located within the delivery radius of a high volume of online customers, rather than high foot traffic areas. With ghost kitchens, there’s no physical storefront or dining area, so you only need a few back-of-house staff members to fulfill online orders.

How does a ghost kitchen work?

In a ghost kitchen, your restaurant is focused on delivery rather than dine-in. When eaters order your food online, you’ll prepare it from your ghost kitchen, and hand it off to a fulfillment team to get the order over to the right delivery driver. This gives restaurateurs a low cost, high efficiency model to get the most out of delivery.

Are ghost kitchens profitable?

Yes. Ghost kitchens allow restaurateurs to increase profitability by maintaining the essential elements of a restaurant while cutting costs on labor, overhead, and wasted food while reaching a higher volume of customers ordering online. Plus, you can run multiple virtual brands out of a single ghost kitchen to increase revenue without the extra overhead.

Why are ghost kitchens so popular?

Ghost kitchens are rising in popularity because they’re a lower cost alternative to operating a traditional restaurant. They’re also focused on delivery, which has grown 300% faster than dine-in since 2014. That means restaurateurs are using ghost kitchens to future-proof their business and accelerate growth.

How does a ghost kitchen help your restaurant grow?

Ghost kitchens help restaurateurs grow their business by doing delivery right. The way we dine has changed, and ghost kitchens allow restaurant operators to capture food delivery demand without sacrificing their bottom line. They’re also a great way to expand to new markets without spending time and money on a traditional restaurant buildout. You can easily expand your restaurant brand to different cities across the country such as Los Angeles or New York.

How much do ghost kitchens cost?

The cost of ghost kitchens varies by market, space, and services. Compared to a traditional restaurant, they’re a much lower cost alternative on both upfront capital and ongoing operating costs. You can get started in a ghost kitchen with as little as $30K, instead of $1M+ for brick and mortar buildout.
