Top 4 Companies Dominating the Global Cloud Kitchen Market, Supported by Rising Demand for Online Food Delivery

Kitchen United, Rebel Foods Pvt. Ltd., DoorDash, Inc. (DoorDash Kitchen), and Kitopi Catering Service LLC., among others, are the major players in the global cloud kitchen market. 


The global cloud kitchen market stood at a value of around USD 44.93 billion in 2023. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.8% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to attain USD 132.45 billion by 2032. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by rising demand for online food delivery.


A crucial driver for the cloud kitchen market growth is the popularity of online food delivery services, such as DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Flink. These platforms allow consumers to easily order food from different restaurants and have consequently created a huge demand for cloud kitchen services. Unlike traditional restaurants, which serve customers on-site, cloud kitchens operate entirely online, allowing consumers to place orders through websites or mobile apps.


Technology plays a prominent role in the cloud kitchen market development. The use of automation and robotics to enhance kitchen operations and develop sophisticated delivery platforms is key to market growth. For instance, machine learning can optimise delivery routes and reduce delivery times. Cloud kitchen operators can also enhance their market share by providing customers with the ability to customise menu items, request specific ingredients, and choose specific delivery times. Further, cloud kitchens provide restaurants with monetary benefits. For instance, restaurants require large operating and overhead costs. However, cloud kitchens allow restaurants to enhance income with reduced expense/investment.
