Cooking delicious food is one job. Running a restaurant is another. With CloudKitchens, cooking can be your top priority. 

Our food delivery-only model can help you overcome the limitations of physical restaurants, leaving your virtual kitchen with more customers, savings, and room for growth. For cooks across Buffalo, NY, ghost kitchen spaces are the secret sauce to complement all your main dishes. 

Instead of spending eight months or more trying to open a restaurant, you can get started in weeks, not months. With inclusive services and spaces, you can start a CloudKitchen with as little as 30K starting capital. You bring your cooking skills, and we’ll help you build out the rest of your kitchen space.

At CloudKitchens, we care about helping your business grow. That’s why we pick central ghost kitchen locations across Buffalo. The more dining room tables within reach, the more orders your virtual kitchen can fulfill. And like a personal commissary kitchen, you can even run multiple brands out of one space.

Unlike restaurant locations, you don’t have to worry about a slew of unpredictable overhead expenses, from cleaning fees to utilities. Our inclusive monthly payments cover cleaning, maintenance, utilities, and several operational services at each location. Instead, you can focus on bringing your best food to Buffalo. 

With so many delivery apps to list your business on, the logistics can be complicated. CloudKitchens provides a simple solution—a single app for all delivery platforms. From our proprietary software, you can access all online orders and review vital customer data to help improve operations.


FAQ

Questions?
We're here to help

What is a ghost kitchen?

Ghost kitchens, also known as dark kitchens or virtual kitchens, are commercial kitchens built for delivery. They’re located within the delivery radius of a high volume of online customers, rather than high foot traffic areas. With ghost kitchens there’s no physical storefront or dining area, so you only need a few back-of-house staff members to fulfill online orders.


How does a ghost kitchen work?

In a ghost kitchen, your restaurant is focused on delivery rather than dine-in. When eaters order your food online, you’ll prepare it from your ghost kitchen, and hand it off to a fulfillment team to get the order over to the right delivery driver. This gives restaurateurs a low cost, high efficiency model to get the most out of delivery.


Are ghost kitchens profitable?

Yes. Ghost kitchens allow restaurateurs to increase profitability by cutting costs on labor, overhead, and wasted food while reaching a higher volume of customers ordering online. Plus, you can run multiple virtual brands out of a single ghost kitchen to increase revenue without the extra overhead.


Why are ghost kitchens so popular?

Ghost kitchens are rising in popularity because they’re a lower cost alternative to operating a traditional restaurant. They’re also focused on delivery, which has grown 300% faster than dine-in since 2014. That means restaurateurs are using ghost kitchens to future-proof their business and accelerate growth.


How does a ghost kitchen help your restaurant grow?

Ghost kitchens help restaurateurs grow their business by doing delivery right. The way we dine has changed, and ghost kitchens allow restaurant operators to capture delivery demand without sacrificing their bottom line. They’re also a great way to expand to new markets without spending time and money on a traditional restaurant buildout.


How much do ghost kitchens cost?

The cost of ghost kitchens varies by market, space, and services. Compared to a traditional restaurant, they’re a much lower cost alternative on both upfront capital and ongoing operating costs. You can get started in a ghost kitchen with as little as $30K, instead of $1M+ for brick and mortar buildout.
