What do I need to do to set up a Sacramento ghost kitchen?

When you get started with CloudKitchens, you’ll need only a few core members of staff to get started. You’ll also be on the hook for your branding and your cuisine. We'll help with the logistics and fulfillment.


Will my kitchen receive orders from multiple food delivery platforms, or is it limited to one?

We will connect you to numerous popular delivery services and platforms in Sacramento. That way, your staff won’t have to deal with confusion or chaos as orders come in. All of your orders will flow neatly into a single app on a single tablet, which we’ll provide.


Why are ghost kitchens more profitable than traditional restaurants?

Ghost kitchens have the potential to be so lucrative because they reduce much of the cost going into the equation. No brick-and-mortar space means little to no construction, or decor, while no front-of-house and dining room staff means far lower labor costs. You save upfront and get started fast, which means you can start reinvesting in your business and expand in the restaurant industry sooner. 


How do I grow my Sacramento ghost kitchen business?

While the traditional restaurant model relies heavily on foot traffic, a ghost kitchen’s business is driven by the internet. CloudKitchens gives you a head start, placing you in an area of the city where many people order delivery, and connecting you to major food delivery platforms. 


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.
