A Shared Kitchen is a centralized commercial food production plant where any restaurants rent kitchen space to optimize delivery. One kitchen may house multiple brands or the so-called virtual restaurant operating under one roof. It’s like a large warehouse with several stations of their own steel prep tables, stoves, sinks, or hood vents with orders coming directly from customers. The Shared Kitchen allows the restaurant to launch multiple brands utilizing the same kitchen infrastructure and resources.
Shared Kitchens are also adaptable, where you can even launch a brand just for a season. For instance, you could offer a salad brand for summer and poutine for winter, letting you take advantage of each type of food’s seasonal demand without enduring any downturn.
Operating a Shared Kitchen
Running Shared Kitchen needs a kitchen space to rent, licensed brand, delivery app visibility, etc. In short, all operational requirements of a virtual restaurant must be provided by the Shared Kitchen. Renting a coworking space and incubator for food producers to multiple third-party brands could turn you a profit with lower overheads, better efficiency, brand exposure through a delivery app, etc. This model also involves keeping the property in order by providing pest control, security services, kitchen equipment maintenance, and other resources like paper towels and cleaning supplies.
