According to The Restaurant Times (2019), the online food delivery business is expected to grow significantly by 2030. This is because restaurant food delivery sales are growing at a rate more than three times than on-premises sales. Due to higher rents and decreasing profits, restaurant owners are opting to close their storefronts entirely and focus on the more financially beneficial solution, cloud kitchen business. Although the cloud kitchen business does seem to promise a brighter future for F&B entrepreneurs, there are few aspects that you need to consider before joining the bandwagon.
