A ghost kitchen, also known as a commissary kitchen, is a kitchen equipped to prepare delivery-only meals. Many restaurants are now using a ghost kitchen to prepare restaurant-quality meals for on-the-go dining.
If you are thinking of opening up a ghost kitchen of your own, there are a few things to keep in mind. First off, you will need to decide what type of cuisine you will be specializing in.
Depending on what type of food you will be preparing, you will need specific equipment to cook certain foods. For example, if you will be cooking and serving BBQ cuisine, you will need a professional-quality smoker and grill. You will also likely need a deep fryer so you can serve traditional sides such as French fries with your main course of BBQ meats.

If you are pretty confident in your recipes and cooking skills, your competition shouldn’t scare you. A ghost kitchen is easier to start up since there aren’t as many costs to open the doors. It is also possible to get up-and-running in as quickly as a week rather than months.
The Benefits of a Ghost Kitchen
There are several benefits to running a ghost kitchen. For one, your ghost kitchen can be located anywhere, so you don’t have to foot the bill for high rent to be centrally located.
You also get to avoid all of the costs that come with accommodating a dining room such as tables, chairs, high rent for the additional space, and wages for front-of-house staff.
There is also a very high demand for delivery food, so you don’t have to “sell” your product. The money you save by not setting up a physical restaurant can be invested in other potential income streams such as marketing campaigns and digital branding.
