Dark kitchens, also known as ghost kitchens or cloud kitchens, have emerged as a disruptive trend in the food service industry. These kitchens operate solely for delivery or takeout purposes, without any dine-in facilities. These are designed to cater to growing demand for online food delivery services, allowing restaurants and food businesses to focus solely on fulfilling orders rather than maintaining a physical dining space.
