Things are finally calming down from the latest wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, and that means everyone from the national government to massive corporations like Microsoft are lowering or loosening any remaining COVID restrictions.
That’s great news for business owners! But for those who started up ghost kitchens during the pandemic years, while you may personally enjoy these restrictions making operations easier, you may also fear that a rush to return to the brick and mortar restaurants may mean a loss in profit.
But don’t fear! Just because things have shifted yet again doesn’t mean that this low-overhead, high-efficiency restaurant concept is going anywhere anytime soon.
Here’s why running a ghost kitchen isn’t just a great idea post-pandemic, but easier than ever thanks to smart technology like Franpos.
Convenience is Convenience (No Matter What)
As with many things in 2020, the pandemic forced everyone—including your customer base—to adapt and change the way they lived. One of those changes was shifting their dining habits to be centered around the mobile apps that define the spaces on which ghost kitchens inhabit.
While people may still enjoy going out from time to time, the convenience of hitting a button and having food brought right to your door is still just as convenient. There’s no reason to assume customers will forget how simple, efficient and frictionless it was to order from your ghost kitchen.
They’ve Got One Menu. You’ve Got Many
The other major selling point of a ghost kitchen (that is, selling multiple items spanning different menus and cuisines) is still an advantage that ghost kitchens have over traditional brick-and-mortar food services. That market advantage again does not go away with pandemic rules and restrictions.
