Over 70% of restaurants have reported staffing shortages as one of the biggest challenges they are facing post-pandemic. By operating under a Ghost Kitchen you can eliminate the need for a waitstaff.
The Rise of Ghost Kitchens
If you are in the restaurant industry you’ve probably heard the term “Ghost Kitchen”.
Ghost kitchens are rooted in pre-pandemic dining culture and saw an extreme rise in popularity throughout the pandemic and have continued to thrive.
Ghost kitchens are businesses centered around food preparation. They do not have a dining area, waiters, or a parking lot for customers to come pickup their food curbside. Instead, they function on a delivery-only system made possible by a restaurant point of sale (POS) system. This technology streamlines the kitchen’s workflows and integrates the process with third-party delivery apps to get orders to customers.
Over 70% of restaurants have reported staffing shortages as one of the biggest challenges they are facing post-pandemic. By eliminating the need for a waitstaff and functioning under a Ghost Kitchen system this can allow for your current employees to redirect their focus to food prep eliminating the need for new staff and an increased payroll.
With no need for dining areas or parking lots, this means Ghost Kitchens can operate in smaller facilities.
While operating a Ghost Kitchen may sound easy, the success of your Ghost Kitchen depends solely on the reliability and efficiency of your POS system.
A cloud-based POS system is the best way to help your ghost kitchen business be successful. Going cloud-based allows you to gain the ability of working with a system tailored for your specific needs and is accessible anywhere. It is crucial that your POS system can manage workflows, run reports, and provide real-time answers to questions from any mobile device.
Implementing a restaurant POS system that can manage multiple locations from one platform gives your business the ability to make swift, data-driven decisions about specials, time management, and so much more. Ghost kitchens capabilities grow with technology. Ghost kitchen operators should meticulously choose and implement the best restaurant tech solutions to ensure their business is positioned for success.
