The Utah food scene

Tacos - ghost kitchen

Utah is the place where natural beauty, arts and culture, and hospitality meet. Hungry people await, gathered in Utah’s metropolitan centers (like Salt Lake and Park City), communities around national parks (like Zion and Arches), and countless centers of worship (which put on plenty of functions in need of catering). From the luxury ski lodges that house locals and tourists alike to university campuses teeming with hungry students, there are scores of food business opportunities across Utah. Find them with CloudKitchens. 

It doesn’t matter what kind of cuisine you’re looking to create. Open a to-go soda shop and sell warm chocolate chip cookies, milkshakes, fry sauce, and funeral potatoes; start a delivery pizzeria and create specialty pies; or introduce Utahns to a totally new type of food. Whatever you’re selling, CloudKitchens is here to turn your food delivery service dreams into a reality with your own virtual restaurant or ghost kitchen. 

Whether you’re crafting appetizers for hob-nobbing filmmakers and celebrities at Sundance Film Festival, cooking up comfort food for hungry hikers, or serving Beehive State staples to students at BYU, you have quality cuisine to share with the good people of Utah—and that’s what you should focus on. Avoid the headaches of traditional restaurant construction, permitting, staffing, and running a brick-and-mortar location. Open a ghost or virtual kitchen with CloudKitchens, and start filling orders in as little as four weeks.

It’s our mission to make the restaurant industry more profitable, less risky, and more enjoyable for everyone involved. Schedule an appointment to view a ghost kitchen space and create a ghost or commissary kitchen Utahns everywhere are bound to adore.

That way, passionate chefs and cooks can create incredible meals in an ideal environment without any bureaucratic stress getting in the way.
