Red Eat Neon Sign Turned on

Technology has taken the world by storm and the restaurant industry has grown by leaps and bounds with it too. According to the National Restaurant Association, industry sales were down $240 billion in 2020 from expected $899 billion. While Covid might’ve put a dent on the revenue of brick-and-mortar, it has also accelerated the growth of Ghost Kitchens and Virtual Concepts. With ghost kitchens, you are renting a dedicated space to execute delivery-only concepts; With virtual concepts, you leverage the operational infrastructure of their restaurant partners across the country to deliver food right to your door. They are similar in many regards with minor differences. Many people have their cynicism because of the word “ghost” or “virtual”, but the food is real and needs to be made somewhere.

Still confused? Well, imagine this – It’s a Friday night and you’re in the mood for nestling in on your own, so you open the app and look for delicious food to get delivered to your door. But here’s the kicker – some of them don’t necessarily have a storefront that offers dine-in experience. In fact, your order went to a ghost kitchen which is basically a delivery and take-out focused arena, and your food could be prepared at a chain restaurant around the corner, or a studio! Ghost kitchen and Virtual Concept have grown exponentially, ever since restaurants started operating multiple brands in one kitchen to alleviate the pressure from Covid. While brick-and-mortar is still going strong, Virtual Dining Concept is on the rise and transforming the landscape of the food industry. Customers want the convenience of food delivery whereas restaurants want additional streams of revenue – it’s certainly a win-win situation.
