Dark Kitchens

Dark kitchens have come a long way since their origins, sometimes they are referred to as ghost or virtual kitchens. The sector is expanding at an incredible rate and there are a growing number of opportunities for people either to diversify their existing food operations or to create an all-new virtual brand.

Pubs Advisory Service has been meeting and talking with the greatest dark kitchen creators in the UK, Jacuna, who provide customers with a suite of services to help people set up and run their own dark kitchen.

In the modern-day and age, most food operators are branching out into providing delivery services alongside their restaurant business. However, this comes with its own problems. For example, the ability to manage delivery and in-house dining services together can be tricky with the cracks showing in the restaurant side of the business. In-house dining quality becomes poorer, delivery drivers navigate around the customers in the restaurant and even cause, or give the perception of longer wait times. Its often compromising and awkward juggling the competing needs of different customers and can easily give the wrong impression to people about your priorities. Everybody loses.

This is where Jacuna can help. Jacuna is a major operator of delivery-only kitchens in the UK, with a leading position in London and an expanding presence in Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds. Jacuna offers a turnkey service to food brands, with excellent quality kitchens and all services covered so the brands can focus on preparing the best food.
