Ghost kitchens

Your secret sauce for franchise growth

The Dickey's Barbecue story

"CloudKitchens is the future. The early bird gets the worm, and we wanted to be one of the early adapters staying ahead of the delivery trend. It was a big headache trying to get new locations open in a pandemic, but CloudKitchens was a lightbulb moment for us. It’s been our solution to COVID. In a typical restaurant buildout it can be upwards of $500K-$1M and can take 2 years. With CloudKitchens, you see ROI at a much faster rate, and with no long buildout process. It’s move-in ready and plug-and-play."
