Dark or ghost kitchens got their name for a reason. The delivery-only restaurants are usually hidden behind darkened windows, blocking views and regular interactions with passersby. Casper, a fast-growing chain of ghost restaurants in Belgium, is taking a friendlier route.
The Ghent-based startup features open windows and a waiting area for delivery people. While Casper works with various delivery platforms, customers are also welcome to pick up orders from its nine brands, which range from burgers and Italian cuisine to Hacked, a meatless partnership with The Vegetarian Butcher.
Casper, which launched in 2020, just raised EUR 5 million in a Series A round and aims to expand internationally.
