We’re here to help

What is a ghost kitchen?

Ghost kitchens, also known as dark kitchens or virtual kitchens, are commissary 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 ghost kitchen in Miami?

At a minimum, your Miami commissary kitchen or ghost kitchen requires a cooking area, multiple storage types, and a streamlined delivery pickup location. It also needs to pass Florida’s health and safety requirements. 

Beyond the basics, you also require a staff who can efficiently handle the work processes of your Miami dark kitchen. When you sign up with our Miami CloudKitchens, we take care of all staffing needs, providing you with a small support team skilled in cooking, food delivery logistics, maintenance, and other tasks. Streamline your ghost kitchen operations for a restaurant designed to grow.

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

Creating a ghost kitchen Miami craves doesn’t need to cost millions like most traditional restaurants in the industry. With CloudKitchens in Miami, virtual restaurant upfront costs are typically three times less, hovering in the tens of thousands and can even be as low as $30k. Build your business with a Miami commissary kitchen and start serving more for less.
