How ‘ghost kitchens’ are changing the restaurant industry
ORLANDO, Fla. – When ordering take-out you probably assume the food that's delivered comes from the restaurant you ordered from, but that's not always the case. With the popularity of food delivery service apps, like Uber Eats, Postmates and DoorDash, more and more restaurants are preparing food in off-site facilities known as ghost kitchens. Orlando-based Red Lobster announced it will soon operate a number of ghost kitchens around the country, with the first expected to be somewhere in the Midwest.

Orlando won't have any ghost kitchens in Red Lobster's initial batch of locations, but Lopdrop said there will be locations here in the future.
