The Dallas food scene

Spaghetti - ghost kitchen

Opening a commercial kitchen or restaurant in a metropolitan hotspot isn’t always easy. Property costs, maintenance, and employee salaries are just a few of the things that make Dallas restaurants tricky to maintain. That’s why ghost kitchens in Dallas are turning the industry on its head. 

Unlike a traditional brick-and-mortar restaurant, it’s easy to open a ghost kitchen. Dallas food business owners can get started in as little as four weeks and hit the ground running with fresh food and fast takeout delivery.

The restaurant industry is changing. With takeout as the new norm, food business owners can reach new audiences with a conveniently located ghost kitchen. Dallas hotspots make the perfect location for food delivery services, which is why all of our ghost kitchens are strategically placed in high-traffic areas. 

If you’re looking to cut costs, a Dallas ghost kitchen is the way to go. A business owner or restaurateur can scale back with a small team—no servers or hosts—limited expenses—goodbye maintenance and real estate costs— to help maximize sales. With CloudKitchens, a chef can feed more customers and earn more revenue than ever before!

With all those incoming orders from delivery app requests, you’ll need the right technology. That’s why every ghost kitchen is complete with all-in-one tablets that help manage the entire process. No need to search high and low for customers—they’ll find you! 

CloudKitchens makes the food delivery business easy. Your virtual restaurant’s next home is right around the corner. All you have to do is get started.

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 can be profitable. 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.

What are the requirements to set up a Dallas ghost kitchen?

Compared to a traditional restaurant, not much! To get started with CloudKitchens, you’ll need an initial investment of at least $30k, 4-6 core members of staff, and six weeks available to set up. From there, we’re firing on all cylinders. We’ll attend to all of your start-up needs while you finesse your menu. 

Will I need to connect my business to food delivery platforms?

We’ll take care of that for you. When you partner with CloudKitchens in Dallas, you’ll receive a tablet and a single, streamlined app that receives orders from multiple major third party delivery apps and platforms.
