But what do you need to start your own ghost kitchen? Keep reading below for some items, and contact Laurel Kitchens in Los Angeles to get started today!
What You Need to Start a Ghost Kitchen
First and foremost, you will need cooking equipment for your ghost kitchen. After all, that's how you make the product for your food business. Depending on the commercial space you lease, this may or may not come with an oven, stove, griddle, fryer, food prep area, and more. Laurel Kitchens leaves food equipment to each tenant for complete customization possibilities.
Food Storage Areas
You'll need dedicated food storage methods, containers, and spaces. In the food business, you'll need a dry storage area, a refrigerator, and a freezer for long-term storage. Laurel Kitchens in Los Angeles offers a shared walk-in cooler and freezer for your use, as well as shared dry storage space.
Food Safety Standards
Ensuring food safety is paramount in the food industry. This entails not only storing food properly, but also having the dedicated space to prep items, such as meat, is important too. Laurel Kitchens offers prep sinks, hand sinks, and compartment sinks so that you can ensure germs are kept at bay and your customers are safe.
Delivery Methods & Options
Ghost kitchens are those that prepare food and sell it elsewhere, from online to food delivery. Thus, you'll need to figure out your delivery method. You can outsource your delivery, using GrubHub for example. Or, you can ship your food. Our ghost kitchen offers parking and food delivery access, which is important for your vehicles.
Starting your own business is exciting and thrilling. Laurel Kitchens is here every step of the way. We offer administration support when you need it, and we've provided a great space to make your own with the items you'll need. Get started today!
