What is a Cloud Kitchen:

Cloud kitchen-based restaurants use online food delivery platforms (e.g. Zomato, Swiggy and UberEats) or their own white-label platform to deliver food, with no dine-in customers. They utilize a commercial kitchen for the purpose of preparing food for delivery or takeout only.
