What is Walmart's Ghost Kitchen Concept?

The Ghost Kitchens service from Walmart allows customers to select food and beverages from up to 25 national and regional restaurants, as well as packaged consumer products, and combine them in a single order. ALEXANDRIA, Virginia - A Walmart store in Plano, Texas, is introducing a commercial ghost kitchen inside the store, offering shoppers the chance to purchase food from well-known restaurants for both home and take-away consumption. Joon Choe and Mohammad Qasim, two North Texas residents, will be running the shop window of the Canadian company Ghost Kitchen Brands at the Walmart in North Plano, Texas, according to The Dallas Morning News. In addition, these ghost kitchens will also serve as an online order delivery center through services like DoorDash. This means that when you place an order online in Rochester, your food could technically come from a Walmart.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport is also converting an old restaurant into a ghost kitchen that will serve meals from several local and national brand restaurants. Restaurants have partnered with DoorDash and other delivery services to deliver meals from ghost kitchens. With Walmart entering the industry, it's a good time for all restaurants to decide if they believe in “friendly ghosts” or if the idea of Walmart opening ghost kitchens haunts their dreams. The duo, veterans of kitchen management who already operate Public Taco in Dallas, plan to sell food from nationally known restaurants in the new kitchen. The restaurant's owners - Canadian company Ghost Kitchen Brands and Dallas-Fort Worth restaurateurs Mohammad Qasim and Joon Choe - decided to opt for Walmart because of their integrated customer base.

Now, thanks to a partnership with Ghost Kitchens, a Canadian company that allows restaurants to operate beyond their usual physical locations, some Walmart stores will offer customers a similar experience with takeout meals. Qasim told the Morning News that this ghost kitchen format allows customers to order from several restaurants in the same tab. Retailers considering establishing ghost kitchens and a reliable delivery platform can read “Ghost Kitchens” to learn how they are a viable solution to expand catering reach. All you have to do is head to the Ghost Kitchens counter at Walmart, mix and match items from up to two dozen well-known restaurant brands, and pick up your varied feast when you're done shopping.
