Dark Kitchens / Virtual Restaurants
Dark Kitchens (or Virtual Restaurants) is a term even some veteran online food junkies may not be familiar with. Their defining feature is that unlike traditional restaurants, they possess no location open to the public, they instead rely on delivering their food to their customers. They operate their business entirely online, allowing for a full e-dining experience. These Kitchens do not welcome clients to come in for dining or collecting takeaway food, but instead operate on a “delivery only” system. Dark Kitchens’ ominous name stems from term “Dark Stores” pioneered by the likes of Amazon or ASOS, these smart kitchens allow for a rapid and inexpensive growth of a restaurant or takeaway without factoring in location costs.
