Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    01

    What is a Ghost kitchen?

    Ghost kitchens are commercial cooking facilities that cater to F&B businesses focused on preparing food mainly for takeaway or delivery. As they usually do not have a storefront or seating area, so they are called ghost kitchens or ghost restaurants. They have become increasingly popular as of late with newcomers to the F&B industry and veterans in the sector as well due to their cost-effectiveness and quick start-up time.


    02

    How much does it cost to rent a ghost kitchen?

    Ghost kitchens use much less space than regular brick-and-mortar restaurants, which usually include a huge dine-in area. Since Smart City Kitchens provides kitchen spaces of varying sizes and locations, the cost can range from S$3500 to S$5000.


    03

    How to start /setup a ghost kitchen?

    Ghost kitchens work on a low-cost, high-efficiency model, meaning it is necessary to pick the right area for your business. Smart City Kitchens spoils you for choice with its strategic locations throughout Singapore and has different sized kitchens available for companies that are just starting out and those who are looking to expand their operations to new markets. Having the right amount of staff and kitchen equipment, including specialist tools, is also important to keep in mind when starting a ghost kitchen. In addition, make sure any renovations that need to be done, no matter how small or big, are completed prior to launching your ghost kitchen. Once all these pieces are in place, you can open for business and begin your exciting food-filled adventure from a ghost kitchen facility.

    How much does it cost to start / set up a ghost kitchen?

    The cost to set up a ghost kitchen depends on the individual restaurateurs. Staff, equipment, and ingredients are some of the key areas of investment as they are vital to the success of a ghost kitchen business. Ultimately, as long as all the major components are in place, there is nothing stopping an eatery from reaching new, unprecedented heights from their ghost kitchen.
