ساهمت الزيادة الكبيرة في خدمات توصيل الطعام خلال العامين الماضيين إلى نمو فكرة "المطابخ السحابية" وهي ببساطة مساحة للطبخ وتحضير الطعام، ثم التغليف والتوصيل، بدون الحاجة إلى مكان لتناول الطعام أو كادر للخدمة. وقد توجهت العديد من مطاعم دبي نحو هذا النموذج لاجتياز فترة الحظر ببداية الوباء، ذلك كون المطابخ السحابية تحافظ على استمرار الربحية مع توفير في الوقت والتكلفة. The increase of online food delivery in the past two years, caused the growth of the “Cloud Kitchens” concept which is basically a space to cook, pack and deliver, with no dining space or front-facing staff.
