What are dark kitchens?

Delivery only kitchens are also known as dark, satellite, virtual, cloud and ghost kitchens. If you are a delivery only food business needing a space to prepare orders, or if you receive an influx of takeaway orders and don’t want to interrupt restaurant operations, this could be the answer to your prayers.

Unlike a traditional restaurant, our remote and customisable kitchen spaces don’t have  bricks and mortar restaurants attached, so you can cut running costs, reduce your carbon footprint and design a practical satellite kitchen layout. They are also a fantastic stepping stone food industry startups looking to perfect their brand or concept without high costs.

Restaurant brands using commercial catering units usually trade on popular food delivery companies such as UberEats, Deliveroo, and now, Deliveroo Editions. So say goodbye to expensive overheads and hello to a wider customer pool with our convenient delivery kitchens.
