Who we Are

A food-focused tech start-up with a difference – Hosted Kitchens allow restaurant businesses to scale with impact.

We have the technology, expertise, and infrastructure to help restaurants operate more profitably.

An extension of your own team, we fuel the growth of your organisation at a fraction of the cost and in a fraction of the time.

“We’ve worked hard to develop our own, best-in-class Hosted Kitchens software. Whether that’s a mobile ordering app or kitchen management systems – all the elements sync up seamlessly… and that makes it a lot more efficient.”

What we do

Hosted Kitchens can integrate all of your existing online orders and bookings so that you can seamlessly get on with what you love and do best – serving up great meals to your customers.

We’ve established multi-kitchen properties around Ireland and adore working at pace (because we know that you do too).

The network, the locations, and the equipment – we have it all, meaning you’re up-and-running fast. It’s a simple, three-step process: partner with us, plug into our services, and get going.

“If it takes a regular restaurant between nine and 12 months to set up in a new location, Hosted Kitchens will do all that in five or six weeks.”

The Story

Hosted Kitchens were founded in Dublin in October 2020. Since then, we’ve expanded rapidly, securing investor funding and growing our team.

An entrepreneur at heart, it was when our Founder Sean Murray lived a worked in the US in the mid-2010s that he first recognised the challenges and opportunities that food businesses faced.

We’re HQ’d in Clonsilla, a suburb in north-west Dublin. It was there that our very first host kitchen was established. We now operate four units from there – with other units being run around the country.

As food deliveries boom and the sector evolves, we like to think we’re a positive part of the change that’s happening right now.

Our partners

We’re not merely a supplier or a contractor – instead, we’re a tangible extension of your team. We’re here to help!

If you own or operate a restaurant that has developed a takeout business and want to expand – that’s where we come in. It’s not just all about expansion either: maybe you recognise the opportunity that takeout offers but are nervous about disrupting your existing dine-in experience (we understand that). We take delivery drivers out of your restaurants so that you can reap the benefits of additional revenue strands without having to reinvent your business from scratch.

Our typical partner has between one and 10 locations already (though we also work with larger chains). We offer a minimum 12-month licence and can help you with your marketing, social media footprint, and communication too.

“Plenty of our partners have city centre locations. But they want to take the drivers out of those restaurants and have satellite kitchens purely for delivery. It makes sense – and that evolution is what Hosted Kitchens do really well.”

Why we exist

We are a restaurant’s ultimate growth team – we allow businesses to set up at a fraction of the cost. And we keep things really simple.

Hosted Kitchens software can process orders from multiple third-parties including global players like JustEat, Uber Eats, Flipdish, and Deliveroo.

Because otherwise, all these different services require separate devices. And at peak, busy times for restaurants those separate devices are really difficult to manage.

Less resource and more efficiency: we bring everything together.

“We’ve worked hard to develop our own Hosted Kitchens software. Whether that’s a mobile ordering app or kitchen management systems – all the elements sync up seamlessly.”

Our understanding of the sector.

he Hosted Kitchens team has years of food business experience – covering every area makes restaurants and food delivers work well.

We understand the pain-points of the sector and know the opportunities that are right now there for the taking as well as what’s coming down the lines.

When you work with Hosted Kitchens, you’re working with experts who speak your language.

“In the past, the delivery customer played second fiddle. That shouldn’t be the case – they’re buying the same product at a similar price. Hosted Kitchens make sure your delivery services are the very best and as good as they can possibly be.”
