Leading dark kitchen start ups in Europe 2020, by total funding

UK start up Karma Kitchen managed to a raise over 300 million euros in just one round of funding in July 2020. The company, which was only founded in 2018, provides kitchen spaces for restaurants and other food businesses, which is becoming of increasing important to the so called 'dark kitchen' market. Other key European companies include Frichti and Keatz.

Dark kitchens, also known as cloud kitchens, ghost kitchens, and virtual kitchens, are an emerging segment of the online food delivery market. They act as a centralized production facility which can be rented by food businesses to prepare meals for delivery. The concept means restaurants can provide a delivery-only service, eliminating the costs of opening their business to walk-in customers.
