Ghost Kitchens: The Biggest Trend You Never Heard Of

"Space to multiple restaurants workers in a single dark kitchen may prep meals for say Wendy's sweet Greens and host of independent restaurants. All at once what? These ghosts kitchens have in common is what's not. Their consumers. Do Not darken their doors. There are no signs advertising delicious meals. No tables and chairs know waiters and waitresses. Just spaces were delivery drivers lineup to pick up their latest stash of Burgers and onion rings. Some like cloud kitchen owned by Uber's ousted. Ceo Travis Kalanick's go to great lengths to hide their kitchens. Locations calendar clearly takes the ghost named seriously. Here's what else they have in common. They are suddenly everywhere. Funded by investors hungry to take advantage of our seemingly insatiable desire to eat our meals on the couch. In the office. Kalanick's new venture has been buying up suitable real estate in the US. India and China according to Fortune magazine funding growth with four hundred million dollars of cash from the Saudi government. Last week ghost kitchen company TOPI which already has thirty locations announced it had secured another sixty million dollars in funding to build out fifty more kitchens in the US Saudi Arabia Dubai Kuwait and the UK. And then there's Pasadena based kitchen united which plans to build at least five thousand kitchens in the Coming Years Industry Publication Restaurant Business reports alphabet which owns Google is. An investor goes kitchen's promise advantages to people in different parts of the restaurant ecosystem. You're an independent chef dreaming of opening your own restaurant but without a million dollars to spare well. You can test your recipes and a ghost kitchen and create a virtual restaurant that exists only on a delivery. App like Grub Hub. Now you can get started for thousands of dollars and build a storefront or by a food truck only after you prove the concept if ever the promises and statistics have been so overwhelming in such a short time but now observers say there may be too many ghost kitchens. Investors have sunk at least five billion dollars into the new industry since two thousand eighteen. The Wall Street Journal reports restaurant business questions whether it's a setup for a bubble especially should a recession set in. Here's the logic when employment looked shakier. We lose a job. We start cooking again. Takeout sales Wayne and ghost. Kitchens can't fill their spaces. Ghost kitchens become ghost towns. I suppose you could say moreover there's already a backlash against some delivery services which have to keep growing to feed the ghost kitchen pipeline chains like olive garden in. Texas roadhouse are shunning third party delivery reports industry publication FSR restaurant executives at these restaurants. Say Third Party. Delivery hurts business. Diverting potential customers who would otherwise dine in order drinks at the bar and develop bonds the bartender in waitstaff. Some say their food doesn't travel well. And if it arrives at a customer's home or office cold well. The restaurant gets blamed. Not Grub Hubbard posts. Mates FSR says these restaurant leaders also questioned the wisdom of paying high commissions to outside delivery services for an outcome that well while it can raise revenues by twenty or thirty percent can shrink profits nearly as much still plenty of business leaders. Believe delivery is here to stay like kroger one of the nation's largest supermarket chains. It is so bullish on this trend that it's partnering with Ghost Kitchen Company Cluster truck.

"This is all over the WNYC am Alison Stewart yesterday in Manhattan a thousand uber lift drivers blocked rush hour traffic demanding better wages and working conditions a lot has changed the ride your servers uber seem like a we went all around drivers meter and schedules passengers got door to door service on demand uber became a verb and for a long time member was considered a highly valuable private tech company but as I said a lot is changed and maybe we all should have seen it coming including who runs the company that should've been assigned who was I to ten years ago and grew by methodically moving from town to town establishing transportation networks in recruiting local drivers but also breaking rules and ignoring norms with maverick founder was both a strength but also perhaps its greatest weakness award winning New York times tech correspondent Mike Isaac has been covering over since two thousand fourteen is a new book that came out earlier this month it's called super pumped the battle for uber it's based on hundreds of interviews with uber employees current and former is a cautionary tale about how a small San Francisco startup turned into an ill fated corporate Silicon Valley potential nightmare welcome Mike. thanks for having me I have to ask I know I know the answer but the title of super part still laugh everything. it is I think it's number twelve on the list of uber's values what does it mean to be super pumped and why did you choose it for the title of a book about uber. totally so I mean I think you know big corporations always have served these list of company values and and usually a lot of like corporate speak and problem tech companies though I think seem to be a little little bit more fly high flying and in very idealistic Google's was don't be evil and that Amazon had a list of fourteen that were like customer obsessed. uber's were slightly different Travis Kalanick the former CEO wanted to create fourteen values to shape uber's company super pumped being my favorite one it was his idea that employees should be quote unquote Superfund to take on the day and to take on any sort of challenges that are in their way and being super pumped gave them super powers I think Travis kind of ran all of his values to like a bro speak translation in general not just to kind of get pair and for me the title really just kind capture leads both these like lofty ideals of the valley but also particularly numbers brooch culture and and ended up what you know it's kind of tongue in cheek but also ended up with being the thing that did the man in the end I'm gonna read a couple of them just a piece we can set the table for people Hustlin principled confrontation. customer obsession make magic all right everybody you've got the idea of covering over back in two thousand fourteen for the times you called Hoover's glory days what was the atmosphere around uber five years ago yes totally I mean like you're saying I think around twenty fourteen is probably when it just started becoming a real verb for the public like I'm gonna Google this family who were over there back in the day I was living in New York and I remember list was really trying to push into the city to and so we were left were locked in these price wars where they would subsidize rides for people and everyone I think really you know everyone except taxi drivers really love the service because they're essentially getting free rides all over all over the New York and in other places and I think at the time to I remember it was probably like every other month where they were able to raise the next billion dollars in private capital and it seemed like they were just the sort of inevitability there are gonna be everywhere they had tons of money to fight and you know there is hints of the judice O. being kind of a jerk towards the end of the twenty fourteen is when things started really getting early but at that point they they just seem like this juggernaut that wasn't going to stop just to be brought remind people what was the the genesis story of uber what was that first seed that was planted yeah I think I mean I think this kind of sets the tone for the whole thing too I'm back in the day so Travis Kalanick was not actually the original founder back in the day there's this tech guy who created this company stumbleupon if you remember that sort of like pre Facebook social network and he you know he was a millionaire but he had problems getting around San Francisco in two thousand nine it was very difficult to catch a cab if and you know public transportation was unreliable he kind of wanted this thing where you know and then also the I. phones come. any any he wanted this thing where you know you could just press a button on your phone and have a car come to you and he was inspired by watching casino royale of the the remake with Daniel Craig and seems sort of ball cortical baller mobile show up on on this radar so he he like the idea of having a black car come to him at the time and and that was the original Hooper before it became anyone consider drive you it is very much I can arrive in style and when did. co founder former CEO Travis Kalanick come in. yeah yet so Travis was the serial entrepreneur Hugh she hadn't made like a small sale and was kind of trying to relax and become a venture venture capitalist say gas on his his new found winnings in two thousand nine and Gerry campus initially wanted I didn't want to service but didn't want to run it so we called Travis Kalanick up it was like you got to do this for me so I'm shortly after they created the idea Travis started basically running the service and does so until twenty seventeen for the next like eight or nine years in your book super pump the battle for Hoover my guess is Mike Isaac by the way you really describe Travis is early life who he was a kid how he related to his parents and he has something happened to me early on in his career that really soured him on sort of investor relations and act and it seemed to me that really sort of set the tone for how he wanted to interact with the rest of the world do you tell people that story yeah totally I think so you know in the valley and start up world and any sort of venture capital situation you know the idea that V. sees our founder friendly that they're going to just give you money and support you is really important to venture capitalists Travis had the almost opposite experience he created this company called scour which was kind of like a proto Napster I would say you know is basically a way to kind of steal music and movies and stuff of the internet and he had a VC named Mike Ovitz who would actually be a she was famous for his super agent days in Hollywood and Ovitz was backing Travis and then you know the MPA a and our our a and all these companies in the entertainment industry basically sued Travis is company into the ground and of its kind of. turned on Travis was like oh okay these are my I'm I'm an amateur VC but I would rather side with the entertainment companies and I think that initial betrayal really set the tone for Travis where he saw V. sees as unable to be trusted and always will be out to get you I think later he said something along the lines of you know they'll VC will be ready to take you down so you have to sort of watch your back and I think that really he carried that with him especially throughout his time Hooper so Travis comes aboard looper how would you describe his leadership style how would you describe the way he and the company interacted with local municipalities as they started to to invade that really. one of my yeah one of one of my favorite quotes I was talking to an ex employee and this person said you know the law is not what is written it's what is enforced and I think the idea that Cooper who were basically just had a ton of money a bunch of different strike team employees and just flooded into cities and started spinning up and running quickly and and I think local governments and and you know transportation officials officers of the law were just completely blindsided by bird pushing into the cities and they weren't actually able to enforce the law and I think that really worked in numerous favor and you know like people really like the service when it started happening if you if you remember you know taxi taxi cabs were not the greatest experience or they might be there might not be able to accept credit cards or whatever and and with you were you can just click your phone and and get a ride anywhere and I think that was a real strength early on and Travis kind of want to empower all of his employees to run their own cities individually but I also think you know later he he kind of hired a lot of people that were like him you know very aggressive bro wish types I would say and that ended up being a liability when you sort of and power all your employees without really being able to control them so yeah the outward facing is describing we were going into the city's flooding the down inward facing if he called coworkers who breath. I don't quite know how to pronounce overshadows overshadows another like googlers or tweaks or whatever overshadows with was the noun for you okay so overshadows inside inward facing what was it like to work at uber under Travis. I I yeah I think I describe in the book as like as an admixture of Thomas Hobbes will for wallstreet and animal house rate which is the idea that you just have to fight to survive and and you do whatever you can to make your number is and that included painting employees against each other Travis really liked the idea of let's go back to the value of principal confrontation writer or meritocracy and toes stepping internally like there would be these fights and he he enjoyed watching divisions fight against each other because he believed that eventually you would come out on top and something better would be created maybe that happened but I think mostly it involves like it's wasting millions of dollars and having like really crazy aggressive divisions fighting each other one employee told me he got like a coffee Cup thrown in his head when he wasn't able to like make make his numbers and another manager in Brazil threatened his subordinates with a baseball bat it was like really insane how this culture regression kind of went overboard and even was encouraged by Travis just initially at least my guest is Mike Isaac the name of his new book is super pumped the battle for uber when did things start to take a turn as a turn downward for over yeah now I mean twenty seventeen was just if if the first you know five six years of river were marked by this upward ascend to and hockey stick growth in twenty seventeen was the year it all fell apart I think Travis Scott a lot of heat for being on this business council for president trump in early on internally is in place around happy with that I think he also you know there's like scandal after scandal came out and really short order in twenty seventeen they were managers who were harassing subordinates. a woman foreman playing Susan Fowler wrote a memo and talked about her history of harassment at the company an engineering manager who's just hired had been accused of sexual harassment at Google the with the company was sued by a way my for stealing for theft of trade secrets way Moses self driving car division of Google he was just sort of like oh my god one gnarly thing after another and then also we reported on this software tool that they essentially used to break in the cities and and I'm you know avoid law enforcement which some people call obstruction of justice so it was one thing after another and and and I think we probably the final straw was a video of Travis or be reading a driver and yelling at him and and saying that they needed to take responsibility for their own stuff and.

Uber losses top $1 billion in run-up to IPO

"Let's talk about Uber subject. We touched on before big losses. The the IP as around the corner. Wh how do you gauge where where whereas Uber at right now. Well, I mean, it's so interesting because with all these big tech companies that have let's say colorful CEO's Travis kalanick's overseas. No longer at Uber. The they seem to make big effect except shareholders don't care that much providing people are still buying the product. And I think that's where Uber's issue is coming that it's growth in bookings is down to. I think it's just under six percent five point nine percent. Whereas in double. Digits until recently. So that's not what you want coming up to an IPO. And I think that is is it's problem at the moment. Talking about this. We've talked before about unicorns of these big companies the tech startups these companies that are on the seemingly inexorable sent for number of years. Six percent growth is is decent. Yeah. It doesn't look that great next to fourteen percent from the previous quarter. But we started in his territory where there are frankly unrealistic expectations about the sustained growth that market watchers or investors have for particular brands mean double digit growth almost by definition condo on forever. Absolutely. And there are a limited number of people who want to get into a cab at any one time. The very first time, I met senior executives at Uber. They said that I'm going to quote brothers. Specifically. They said we set up Uber to solve the shit show of getting a cab in San Francisco, and and not it is much less of one. But even so, you know, you you do see 'cause strolling the streets roaming, the streets trying to get a booking and the same with cabs now. And certainly it's the same in London. We've seen it with with lots of cars just going slowly because they're waiting for the next Uber. Chance to dry someone somewhere. And I think that's the. That's right. You can't you can't go on like that forever. Because everyone would be in a new book.

So I think you can see sort of a clear line from the attention. She drew to the issue. A workplace harassment division that Uber is taking now when it thinks more about riders and drivers interacting in misconduct. It can take place there. So it's had a huge impact in his really put this set of issues at the front of Uber's mind in the company is already waived mandatory arbitration for harassment and assault victims riders drivers and its own employees.
