FAQ

Questions? 
We’re here to help

What are the requirements to set up a ghost kitchen in Oceanside, CA?

An Oceanside ghost kitchen has to be for delivery only, so your establishment can’t have a dining area for customers. Beyond that, California has a strict list of licenses and permits needed to operate a commercial kitchen within the state. Luckily, CloudKitchens takes care of all this back-end paperwork, so your kitchen is ready to use right away.


Does CloudKitchens provide the delivery drivers among their support staff?

Your operation will rely on popular third-party delivery apps, all of which have their own drivers, ready to fulfill your orders. We connect your ghost kitchen to those delivery apps and process all orders through a single, seamless platform. 


Which Oceanside, CA neighborhood is best for a ghost kitchen?

When you choose your delivery kitchen location, keep in mind the customers you want to serve. Low-key fare like chicken tenders and wings are great for the beachfront, while healthy meals attract parents in residential neighborhoods who order out for family dinners. 

When you sign up, the CloudKitchens team helps you find the best location for you—always in areas with high delivery demand.


Can I choose my own staff?

To simplify the startup process, all our ghost kitchens come with top-notch teams, well-versed in the local scene. That said, you’re welcome to hire team members based on your restaurant’s specific needs. 


How profitable will my Oceanside, CA CloudKitchen be?

With the savings you’ll have from eliminating front-of-house staff, property tax, and other startup costs, you’ll be well-positioned to break even and start turning a profit. 


Will I have to manage orders from multiple platforms?

Nope. Even though we use a variety of third-party delivery apps, our integrated technology allows you to manage all orders on a single tablet.


How do I run a successful ghost kitchen in Oceanside, CA?

Food delivery service in Oceanside should cater to both locals and seasonal tourists. Once you establish your place in the coastal food scene, you can build a community of satisfied repeat customers and even start to expand your brand from the same low-cost kitchen.
