So you're looking to start a ghost kitchen? Fantastic! We here at Laurel Kitchens in Los Angeles could not be more thrilled. Ghost kitchens are rising in popularity for many reasons, and given the fact that most Americans eat out at least once a week, this is a great space to make your mark. Below, we'll take a look at some reasons to start a ghost kitchen. Schedule a tour of our commercial kitchens for lease today!
Reasons to Start a Ghost Kitchen
Rather than leasing out a prime location for a restaurant and all of the space you'll need for seating, instead, you can lease out a much smaller space, which can save you a bundle in rent. You also won't have to hire as many employees to serve people, either. You'll also save on miscellaneous item costs, such as menu printing, tables, and chairs, and more.
Appeal To Delivery & Online Orders
When you're running a full-service restaurant, you have to appeal to those walking through your door looking for a dining experience, as well as take out and delivery. By focusing on the convenience factor, you'll be in a better position to market to those solely looking for food delivery rather than everyone.
A ghost kitchen business model is a lot easier to implement than a full-service kitchen. You don't have to work around employees' schedules, nor is there as much backend work to do when you are running a larger-scale business. You can open your food delivery or catering business a lot sooner, too. This means less work on your part overall. You'll have less taxes to pay, less payroll to process, and fewer staff worries.
Additional Income for Existing Restaurants
Existing restaurants are not left out of the ghost kitchen hubbub. Many restaurants are branching off, using ghost kitchens to launch their own online business or food delivery business. Ghost kitchens can be a great way to franchise, or they are a great way to expand your business without leasing a larger building.
