William Dossche, Epic Kitchens vice president of business development, told the Atlanta Business Chronicle that Epic Kitchens is planning to expand into other markets, including Atlanta, in the future. Although it may be a while before they finalize a home market expansion.

Epic Kitchens works as a ghost kitchen, a meal-prep facility where employees cook food for delivery only. A restaurant that operates a ghost kitchen does not have its own brick-and-mortar space for dine-in or take-out and exists solely for delivery business, offering lower overhead for restaurant owners.

The ghost kitchen concept gained popularity amid the Covid-19 pandemic as restaurants closed and takeout sales increased, leading chain restaurants to partner with third-party ghost kitchens, like Epic Kitchens.

Epic Kitchens currently operates in downtown Chicago and will soon expand to Chicago’s Lakeview area and Austin, Texas, according to the company’s website. It partners with nine restaurant brands, including three with metro Atlanta locations: Burger Fi, Pokeworks and Buffalo’s.
