Everything You Need to Know About Shared Kitchens

Today we store our photos, stream our movies, and even run our business in the cloud. And more and more often, whether we realize it or not, it’s also where we’re ordering our food. Introducing cloud kitchens, a commercial facility designed for the production of specialty foods for delivery.

Sometimes referred to as shared commissary kitchen, community kitchen, or virtual kitchen, cloud kitchen is run by specialty food brands known as virtual restaurants. You're probably thinking, "This is nothing new," and on the one hand, you're right. Chinese restaurants have capitalized on delivery for decades. And the pizza industry has practically built its business around delivery optimization.

But switching to a delivery-only model has only recently become possible thanks to advances in technology and changing consumer habits. This offers certain advantages over delivery from a traditional brick restaurant. Shared kitchens are centrally licensed commercial food production facilities where one or two to dozens of restaurants take up space to prepare menu items optimized for delivery.

A restaurant can operate multiple brands or virtual restaurants all operating under one roof, or the kitchen can operate as an incubator shared by different vendors. Imagine a large warehouse with many stations (mini-restaurants) with stainless steel prep tables, air vents, ranges, ovens, and sinks, each taking their own orders directly from customers.
