FAQ

Questions?We are here to help.

What is a virtual kitchen?

A virtual kitchen is a commercial kitchen space that fulfills delivery orders without an attached restaurant dining room. The “virtual” moniker refers to the online ordering system that most virtual kitchens utilize (as opposed to telephone ordering).


How does a virtual kitchen work?

A virtual kitchen takes online orders through a proprietary interface (like the CloudKitchens system) or multiple applications. The orders are prepared in a dedicated kitchen, then delivered to customers via courier.


What is the difference between a ghost kitchen vs. virtual kitchen?

The terms “ghost kitchen,” “cloud kitchen,” “virtual kitchen,” “virtual restaurant,” and “dark kitchen” are fairly interchangeable. While there’s some disagreement about the semantics, all of these terms basically refer to commercial kitchens that serve a delivery-only clientele, typically through a food delivery app such as Uber Eats or DoorDash.


Are virtual kitchens profitable?

Virtual kitchens have the potential to be very profitable. The cost of running a virtual kitchen is much lower than running a traditional restaurant, allowing restaurant owners to keep overhead down and profits up.


How much do virtual kitchens cost?

Virtual kitchens vary in terms of start-up costs. You can open a CloudKitchens virtual kitchen for an upfront investment of only $30k—a price point significantly lower than the million dollars or more required to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant.
