Consumers’ Love Of Takeout Spurs Demand For Ghost Kitchens In Industrial Hubs
Under-used mall and industrial spaces are becoming a hot commodity thanks to the rise of so-called ghost kitchens.
These kitchens, also known as virtual eateries, are often set up in spaces that typically go unused such as basements or car park areas. Industrial landlords have also profited as the sites offer easier, more discreet access for delivery drivers to reach the kitchen.
Such is the case for restaurants like Leafage and Butcher Block, owned by food delivery services company Green Summit Group, in New York. Both eateries are delivery-only and do not have to account for customer seating space in their real estate needs.
