Food Tech Stories: How An Indian Ghost Kitchen Received $5M From An Indonesian Investor


Cloud kitchens are referred to as ghost kitchens, shadow kitchens, virtual, or dark kitchens. In any case, the essential idea is as yet the equivalent. Eateries have no physical space and are present online. Meals can be requested through food aggregator applications or through the eatery's own application, yet the eateries themselves don't have eat-in facilities. A couple of these eateries may likewise provide take-out services to their clients.


The present concept of the dark kitchen was laid down in India. Thus, Rebel Foods, supported by Sequoia, was the first to start the business. This is how Faasos appeared. Today, Rebel Foods has more than 9 brands and recently raised $125 million and is valued at $525 million. Faasos Food Services is an Indian "food on request" organization that was consolidated in 2011. The organization rebranded itself as Rebel Foods in 2018.

Being #1 in its niche, it gets 10,000 requests per day across India and has recorded a development pace of 20-25 percent month-on-month. The organization has scaled up activities to 22 urban areas, with more than 125 fulfillment centers in three years.

Faasos or Rebel Foods raised its first round of financing of US$5 million from Sequoia Capital in November 2011, following a second round of US$20 million in February 2015 from Lightbox Ventures and Sequoia Capital. A third round of subsidizing got them US$30 million in December 2015.

Revolutionary nourishments, the parent organization of Fassos also brought them $125 million of subsidizing.
