What are the pros of using a virtual kitchen?
Virtual kitchen solutions have become a disrupter in the food and beverage industry. This is because of shifts in consumer behaviour coupled with technological advancements, all of which was expedited by the COVID pandemic.
By owning and operating a virtual kitchen in Singapore you will be able to be one step ahead of your F&B competitors. As of 2020, Singapore’s food delivery market is worth over $1 billion. Countless restaurants have tried to adapt, but have found it’s easier said than done. Virtual kitchens offer a pragmatic solution and are primed to help businesses in Singapore adapt, grow, and scale under the new norm.
But most importantly, running a virtual kitchen allows you to reduce your businesses’ overhead by drastically cutting the cost of your rent, as well as the need for more employees. Going virtual means going lean, and by eliminating the FOH experience you can lower your overhead and focus on growing, and scaling, your very own food empire.
