The Florida food scene

Tacos - ghost kitchen

As anyone from the Sunshine State can tell you, Florida is a thriving melting pot of tastes and cultures. From Cuban sandwiches and stone crab claws to “Floribbean” fusion dishes and citrus-inspired desserts, Florida’s food scene is full of fantastic flavor.

When you work with CloudKitchens to open a ghost kitchen in Florida, you can contribute to an incredible culinary landscape without the risk a brick-and-mortar restaurant entails. With a minimum investment of $30k, and an accelerated construction and permitting process, you can start fulfilling orders—and delivering delicious flavors—in as little as four weeks.

CloudKitchens’ facilities are located in strategic, population-dense areas, so you’ll be able to serve the widest possible array of clientele. Whether you’re cooking up traditional seafood, frying gator bites, or slinging stir-fry, Florida’s pristine beaches, massive theme parks, and buzzing city centers are full of people who are hungry for your food.  

So, dish out pinks in Boca Raton, serve oysters on the Panhandle, or box up fresh fish tacos and deliver them to Tampa Bay afterparties, Tallahassee tailgates, and Orlando hotel rooms. No matter what you’re cooking, there’s someone hungry in Florida ready to chow down. 

When you work with CloudKitchens, you have the power of an experienced partner by your side. We’ll help you with all the permits, inspections, and equipment you need to run a successful delivery endeavor in Florida. Meanwhile, you can focus on your passions—creating incredible food, and feeding happy customers.

We’re here to help

What are the requirements to set up a ghost kitchen operation in Florida?

Food service operations are regulated by three separate bodies in Florida: the Florida Department of Health, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, and the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Wherever you're located in Florida—Central Florida, South Florida, etc.—to set up your Florida ghost kitchen, you’ll need to secure the requisite permits, certifications, and inspections from these agencies.

CloudKitchens can help you check off all the boxes before you open up for business so you don’t have to search “commissary kitchen Florida rules.” We’ll handle the bulk of the red-tape requirements and keep you up to speed as everything progresses.

How much does it cost to start a ghost kitchen operation in Florida?

It can be fairly expensive to start a new food business. In fact, building a brand new commercial kitchen (Florida-based or otherwise) from the ground up can set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

CloudKitchens found a better way. Our alternative to a traditional restaurant concept allows passionate cooks to get started in the restaurant industry for as little as 30k. With a modest upfront investment, you’ll have access to a permitted kitchen, complete with maintenance, cleaning, and order fulfillment. Start a ghost kitchen in Florida that residents can’t wait to try!
