Virtual Restaurants: New Concept opportunity

"Partnership with Waitr could also help spin up experiments in new restaurant concepts. Consider the high costs of opening a restaurant — the property, the inventory and the marketing just to name a few. In McMath’s vision, an aspiring restaurateur could rent space to spin up a new kind of pop-up dinner in the form of a virtual restaurant. For a few nights per week, the chef would do his cooking in the legally required commissary. He’d flip a switch within the Waitr software to signal to the public that the restaurant was available on a given night (presumably with some solid word-of-mouth backing it up.) Then, people could order the full menu for delivery directly from Acadiana Commissary Kitchen. A successful few weekends via Waitr could help an entrepreneur make a good business case for his concept to a lender.

This would enable a perspective restaurateur to test his concept before a huge investment and maybe gain some credit they could leverage into their own location in the future, without the upfront risk of a full restaurant build out and lease. Failure via this model would be much cheaper than going all-in and opening a restaurant. It could be a simple way for budding chefs to prove out their offerings in Lafayette, one of the most crowded culinary marketplaces in the world."
