28 Jun The Co-Cooking Kitchen
Co-working spaces have revolutionized the office space arena. It makes perfect sense. When your home office is getting a bit cramped but you’re not quite ready for your own space, co-working can offer everything you need without exorbitant rental costs.
The same model is being applied to an unexpected area, kitchens. The Chinese startup company, ‘Panda Selected’ rents out kitchen space to take-out only restaurants that use the space to create delicious food and hand off the distribution to Uber Eats and equivalents to deliver. The arrangement works great for all parties as it offers a stepping-stone to eat in locations, just as food trucks do in Los Angeles. A savvy chef can use Panda Selected to start their food dream and later move onto a stand-alone restaurant. Panda Selected also helps its tenants with supporting aspects of the business including; logo design, menu writing and even connects them with quality suppliers.
This makes you think about how the co-working model, like the Netflix model, could be applied to virtually any industry. It’s only a matter of time before everything you could ever need could be shared with another for mutual gain.
