Don’t Be Afraid: Growing Your Business With Ghost Kitchens
Opening a new restaurant is notoriously difficult.
Real estate and hospitality attorney Herman Lipkis authored an article for Modern Restaurant Management on the opportunities "ghost kitchens" present new restaurant owners. Instead of traditional brick and mortar locations, ghost kitchens—also known as "mobile" or "dark" kitchens which are fully equipped commercial grade facilities outfitted in tractor trailer trucks—are a creative and cost-effective way to expand a restaurant or food business.
Mr. Lipkis provides details on the advantages and limitations of ghost kitchens, as well as the proper leases, licenses and permits required for operation.
