Thai fast-food chain operator to open 100 'cloud kitchens' by 2024

Central Restaurants aims to take large slice of $1.1bn food delivery market

Thailand's Central Restaurants, which runs more than 1,000 fast-food outlets, is expanding its delivery services by setting up "cloud kitchens" across the country.

BANGKOK -- Thailand's leading fast-food restaurant chain, Central Restaurants Group, will set up 100 "cloud kitchens" across the country within five years to strengthen its food-delivery business and capitalize on growing demand following the new coronavirus outbreak.

Cloud kitchens are centralized hubs for food preparation and delivery. Central Restaurants, a unit of retail-to-hospitality conglomerate Central Group, said Monday that the company had opened its first cloud kitchen in Bangkok's Lad Phrao district last week.
