DoorDash Opens Ghost Kitchen
In Redwood City, DoorDash is opening a Ghost Kitchen where restaurants will prepare meals to be delivered or for pickup without being a place where people go to eat. The facility will give those restaurants access to new customers in neighboring communities without the overhead involved in expanding their brick-and-mortar stores.
For property owners, the facilities can be advantageous. Ghost kitchens can often be set up in spaces that typically go unused, such as basements or parking areas. They can also be located in industrial space, since those sites offer easier access for delivery drivers compared with standard retail space.
