The Minnesota food scene

Tacos - ghost kitchen

Minnesota is more than stunning natural scenery and starry night skies (though those things are pretty great, too). Metropolitan centers like Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, and St. Cloud are home to millions of hungry Minnesotans. Whether you’re feeding University students on the campus of Carleton College, catering to tourists who have worked up an appetite canoeing on the lakes, or delivering dinner to the many hardworking folks who call Minnesota home, CloudKitchens is happy to help make it all possible. 

Minnesota’s cuisine is a rich tapestry. You can find all kinds of delicious food in the North Star State—indigenous dishes made with local wild rice and root vegetables, breaded freshwater walleye (the state fish), tater tot hotdish, and Scandinavian lefse are just a few of the options. Whether you’re following in the footsteps of those who came before you or bringing a completely new taste to the table, Minnesotans are eager to eat what you’re dishing up.  

Join the thriving East Asian scene in St. Paul’s Hmongtown, sling out juicy Lucy burgers, or serve up Swedish meatballs in style. CloudKitchens in Minnesota allows you to create incredible cuisine without worrying about maintaining a dining room, payrolling waitstaff, or spending a fortune on brick-and-mortar expenses - all through your own ghost kitchen.

With a starting investment of just 30k and in as little as four weeks, you can break into the restaurant industry, open your virtual restaurant, and start delivering delicious food to eager customers across the state. There’s no reason to wait. Schedule a tour of a CloudKitchens facility in Minnesota today and discover how your food business can be the best in the Midwest.
