The Minneapolis food scene

Spaghetti - ghost kitchen

CloudKitchens is the simple alternative to sit-down eateries that often waste precious space, time, and money. Our delivery-only kitchens are set up instead for restaurateur success, offering an affordable, convenient, and wide-reaching business model. 

With a Minneapolis ghost kitchen, your business can launch in weeks, instead of the months or even years it takes to build a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Our low-capital, efficient buildout process means you as a chef can start cooking ASAP—no waiting on construction blueprints or business loans. You bring your cooking skills, and we open the kitchen door.

While a shared Minneapolis commissary kitchen space may be located on the outskirts of town, ghost kitchens are only placed in central locations with plenty of delivery traffic, so you can reach more households and eager customers. Even better, our commercial kitchens can host multiple enterprises, meaning you can serve different menus from one location to even more virtual kitchen customers.

While you focus on flavor profiles and ingredients, our Minneapolis ghost kitchen options include the operational services you need, from security and cleaning to utilities and basic equipment. That way, your top focus is cooking, not budgeting. And unlike most brick-and-mortar restaurants, CloudKitchens operations can break even in as few as six months—now that’s a winning recipe.

Delivery-only operations are the future—and so is our proprietary technology. With each Minneapolis commercial kitchen, chefs have access to our exclusive app, which funnels orders from different delivery services into one convenient platform. Your team can also view performance data reports, helping you tweak your business for peak success.

Leave behind the brick-and-mortar obstacles that weigh down traditional restaurants with CloudKitchens in Minneapolis. Between affordable payments and easy access to customers, our delivery kitchens are today’s smart choice for tomorrow’s success.

FAQ

Questions? 
We’re here to help

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.
