What are dark kitchens?

Dark kitchens are also known as satellite, ghost, cloud and virtual kitchens. If you are a delivery only restaurant 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.

Our remote and customisable facilities don’t have a restaurant 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 for startups looking for perfect their brand or concept without high costs.

Restaurant brands using commercial catering units usually trade on popular food delivery companies such as Uber Eats and Deliveroo. So say goodbye to expensive overheads and hello to a broader customer pool with our facilities.
