Growing trend in shared kitchen spaces

There’s a growing trend in the global F&B industry. Many of the more successful and savvy restaurant chains are growing at a surprisingly fast rate - and it’s because they’ve discovered a new way of running their kitchens. Delivery focussed kitchen spaces are helping restaurant businesses streamline just about every operation involved in their kitchen.
Whether it be the size of your team, the number of orders you can fulfill, or how your space is utilized, shared kitchen spaces take efficiency to a whole new level.
As the kitchen equivalent of the sharing economy, these shared kitchens - otherwise referred to as cloud, virtual, ghost & dark kitchens - offer the restaurant industry a chance to widen historically slim profit margins and operate a more efficient kitchen model. One of the biggest reasons behind this is the ability to cook for more than one brand within the same space.

One Kitchen; Many Brands

Our shared kitchens empowered you to run multiple brands with a minimal cost.

Innovative way to food creation

At the end of the day, a restaurant is a business; and a business must make enough money to survive. Restaurant owners across Australia have been trying to find innovative and new ways to keep their business afloat, especially during the course of a pandemic.


Inefficiency in traditional restaurant model

With the traditional dine-in restaurant model, your kitchen would be limited to cook food for customers in the dine-in area, and maybe for takeout orders. When the restaurant is closed, the kitchen is left unused - and if raw produce isn’t used in time, it gets thrown out. Countless other inefficiencies in the kitchen model have been accepted as a fact of life for decades - until now.


One kitchen for multiple brands

Shared kitchens offer a solution to F&B business owners looking to modernise. They can even be used to experiment with multiple brands within the umbrella of your business. One single kitchen space can be used for a brand centred around breakfast food, then transition into a more fine-dining restaurant popular in the evenings. At its core, a shared kitchen allows you to use your space in whatever way you desire to get the most value out of it.

Get Started

/ Virtual Brands

Share more than just the space

virtual-brand-graphic-chefcollective-australia

All the different brands in your kitchen space could be serving wildly different clientele - but they can still share the same suppliers, equipment, and more. Doubling up on all these different aspects of your food delivery business not only saves money, but also a significant amount of time and effort. While your operator handles all the insurance, licensing, and complicated bureaucratic complications, you’ll be able to take advantage of everything shared kitchen spaces have to offer.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are shared kitchens?
A shared kitchen is when several restaurant brands use a single kitchen space. They may choose to share suppliers, equipment, and more to make their kitchen processes more streamlined and optimised.

How many brands can I operate out of a single shared kitchen?
There is no hard limit on how many brands you can operate out of a single Chef Collective kitchen space. However, we would say there is a sweet spot whereby different brands can share the same equipment and suppliers, without unnecessary complexity that may arise from a huge number of brands and food types.

Can different brands share the same kitchen equipment?
Absolutely. This is one of the key selling points of a shared kitchen space and has helped countless food delivery businesses find success in recent years. While this can definitely help increase your kitchen efficiency, note that certain cuisines may have dietary requirements that sharing equipment could complicate.
