We are excited to continue our Innovative Features blog series with a look at Virtual Restaurants. As you all know, NovaDine is a complete end-to-end digital ordering solution, with everything you need for off-premise success. We are innovators in the marketplace with a host of unique features including Delivery Management, Delivery as a Service (DaaS), POS Integration, and Contactless Curbside Pickup to name a few. We also provide Virtual Restaurants, or Ghost Kitchens, which allow your restaurant to test new menus and offer items that may not be compatible with your current concept.
The concept of a Virtual Restaurant is relatively new; however, due to the effects of COVID-19, they have become a viable alternative to starting a brick-and-mortar, dine-in establishment. Virtual Restaurants focus on selling and fulfilling online food orders for Delivery Service Providers (DSPs) such as Grubhub, UberEats, and DoorDash without a storefront or dining area.
The NovaDine Virtual Restaurant gives more visibility on 3rd party marketplaces with your restaurant being listed under multiple concepts or menus. You have the option of creating an endless number of virtual kitchens and restaurants that exist exclusively online through 3rd party marketplace sites. NovaDine clients such as Frisch’s Big Boy and Urban Plates are seeing the benefits that Virtual Restaurants can offer their companies.
“The ability to create additional revenue for hosts and brands without capital expenditure is a signature feature of the platform,” said Jason Vaughn, CEO of Frisch’s Big Boy. “Hosts increase their sales and brands expand their footprints to new markets – everyone wins.”
Virtual Kitchens is just one of the many features NovaDine offers to our clients. Not a client?

We look forward to providing the right solutions for your restaurant.
Stay tuned as we highlight the strengths and developments of each one of our incredible features in our upcoming blog posts.
