How Tech Contributes to Obesity

Ghost Kitchens, known sometimes as “dark kitchens” or “cloud kitchens” are a new type of “third place” space that has been silently transforming the restaurant industry. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, and consumers expect the delivery of goods and services as quickly as the push of a button on an app, the industry has been forced to find new ways to break away from traditional operations to match the demand. Many restaurants, both chain and individually owned, are turning to ghost kitchens as a way to survive, and thrive, in the future of the food and beverage industry. According to a report by Restaurant industry & Market Evolution, 52% of surveyed restaurants are considering setting up a ghost kitchen or some sort of delivery-only service as an offshoot of their brand.

    1. We will always pay for more convenience. Fresh grapes are expensive now, between $3 and $4.00 a pound. I saw a mixed grape cup for around $5.00. You’ll pay more for someone other than yourself to pick, wash, and put grapes into a cup!
