while many restaurants have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the revenue of food delivery services is on the rise. In order to respond the emerging needs of consumers, cloud kitchens have sprung up. In this issue, we will introduce the development of cloud kitchens.

Restaurants are Facing an Era of Transformation

Food delivery service has become a new norm for many people, not only due to apps and smart phones in our daily lives, but also how it had changed the way we consume. Especially after the pandemic caused by COVID-19, restaurant businesses are suffering around the globe, since there has been a tremendous loss in business revenue to cover rent, labor and other fixed costs, but on the contrary, the demand for food take-out and delivery services had reached all-time high.

In the U.S.A., there were a total of 26,160 restaurants reported closed during March to July, 2020, and out of which, 16,000 restaurants were closed permanently. In Japan, there was an estimate of 70% of the country’s restaurants that were affected by the pandemic. However, food business had slowly switched to deliver services. Uber Eats’ 2020 Q1 financial report shows 55% growth in revenue (approximately 47 billion USD), and 8.2 billion USD in profit, which had also increased 53%. And in Q2, profit had reached 8.85 billion USD, which reached 103% growth since same time last year.

Hence, cloud kitchen was created as a new solution to the traditional F&B business, a new model that’s not restricted by space or rent.

The Rise of Food Delivery Services & Cloud Kitchens

Also known as “Virtual Kitchens”, Cloud kitchens lack of dine-in areas, but solely focus on take-out or delivery services through different apps. And when the rent and other fixed costs are lowered, kitchens can put the focuses back on “food and preparation”, which allows many brands to be created in a single kitchen, as rest of the work could be out-sourced to logistic companies or other services.

Cloud kitchens are also considered as food manufacturing facilities, which could be carefully planned in advance and scaled, with elevated hygienic standards, product consistency, productivity and efficiency, in order to produce high quality foods at reasonable costs, and can then offer consumers readily available meals whenever they are hungry and wherever they may be, resolving problems caused by limited space and food delivery or travel distance that many traditional restaurants face.

Take Rebel Foods for example, it’s the leading brand in the industry that opened over 1,000 online restaurants in two years, and by connecting and integrating food services with mobile technologies, it’s able to drastically increase its brand awareness with seamless services. By improving the “sharing kitchen” concept, many companies could work in the same venue to share costs and increase efficiency.
