The global restaurant industry is going through a tough phase because of the challenges posed by COVID-19. As per Bloomberg, more than 1,10,000 restaurants in United States have closed permanently.
However, the pandemic has led to the boom of cloud kitchen or delivery-only restaurants where there is no concept of dining space.
What makes cloud kitchen an imperative?
More hygiene conscious customers –
The pandemic outbreak has made customers more hygiene conscious as they fear the contraction.
As per ForbesIndia, 72% of the customers prefer to go with the food delivery option because they don’t want to get out of the comfort of their home. Hence it’s the right time for you to invest in cloud kitchens.
Low infrastructure and overhead costs –
As there is no dine-in area in cloud kitchens, you don’t have to spend money on expensive chairs and tables, servers, cleaning boys and cutlery. Unlike restaurants, you neither need to locate your venture in a posh area. Thus you can save an enormous amount of money on rentals as well.
Ease of managing orders –
Investing in a cloud kitchen software or catering app relieves you from the pain of managing orders. Inresto POS, India’s leading cloud based restaurant management system offers the feature of managing orders from multiple platforms such as third party aggregators, websites, apps and many more.
Ease of expansion –
Once your cloud kitchen earns a reputation in the market, it’s quite easy to expand to other locations. You can also prepare semi-cooked food in your cloud kitchen and supply to other small kitchens involved in the business of food delivery.
